  • The soon-to-be queen of Spain is set to rival our own Kate Middleton in the style stakes. Take a look over Princess Letizia's chic wardrobe to date...

    With news that King Juan Carlos of Spain is to abdicate after a 40 year reign, attention has moved to the young couple who will take the throne.

    King Juan Carlos’s son, Crown Prince Felipe will become the new king of Spain, thrusting him into the limelight across the world – but it’s his wife, Crown Princess Letizia, who is making headlines in the British press.
