The solemn military parade that is held every October 12 in Madrid’s Paseo de la Castellana on the occasion of Hispanic Heritage Day is one of the Royal Family’s favorite events. And especially from Queen Letizia, who always impresses with the elegant outfits she chooses for the event and in which, except on one occasion – in 2019 – she has always released a model, drawing attention to her ‘loyalty’ to her designer. header, Felipe Varela, in charge of dressing her on the Day of the National Holiday since she married Don Felipe in 2004.
