  1. Queen Letizia looked the epitome of elegance and sobriety, totally appropriate for the occasion and the times. I especially love the pearl and diamond brooch. I hope she continues wearing more brooches in the future.

    1. It was pointed out to me the significance of wearing the Countess of “Barcelona’s” brooch during the Catalonia issue, so it has a deeper meaning! I hope to see one of the brooches from the Joyas de Pasar soon!
