Every year in Spain on the 6th of January, the Spanish Royal Family commemorates Pascua Militar, a military ceremony at the Royal Palace of Madrid.

At the Pascua Militar, King Felipe receives the “Prime Minister, the Minister of Defence, the Chief of the Defence Staff, the Chiefs of Staff of all branches, the Grand Masters of the Royal and Military Orders of San Fernando and San Hermenegildo, the Civil Guard chiefs and the Veterans Brotherhood,” per Wikipedia.

King Felipe will also review the troops in the courtyard with the other members of the Royal Family, then receive the officers in the Throne Room. He also gives a speech, alongside the Prime Minister.

Ahead of this year’s Pascua Militar, let’s take a look at Queen Letizia’s outfits over the years.
