The Royals are some of the leading influences when it comes to fashion. Often the first fashion figures that come to mind are the British royal family — the ever-polished Kate Middleton, the elegant trendsetter Lady Diana, and the edgy yet sophisticated newbie Meghan Markle. Although this group of fashionistas is always dressed well and in noteworthy fashions, there is another royal fashionista that deserves just as much attention — Queen Letizia of Spain! She sets standards of her own when it comes to fashion and proves that being a royal doesn’t mean always dressing modestly and in outdated pieces. Her style is fresh, on trend and totally elegant, which also means breaking a few royal fashion standards or two. Follow along for 12 of Queen Letizia’s most noteworthy fashion moments:

12. Skinny Pants

Previously it was expected for royal women to make public appearances wearing a skirt or dress. Clearly, times have changed and more often women have opted to wear trousers, but they’re typically a loose fit. Queen Letizia has set her own standard when it comes to pants and has opted for skinny fit trousers on multiple occasions for public engagements. The style is obviously casual, but if the event suits skinny trousers, we’re all for it since she still looks totally professional and polished.

11. Capes Over Coats

Typically royals opt for a smart-looking tweed coat or a wool peacoat of some sort while making public appearances during the cooler months. Queen Letizia, however, totally shook up this standard when she stepped out wearing a coordinating cape and dress combination. The olive cape draped gracefully over her shoulders and she accessorized with eccentric snakeskin shoes and a matching clutch.
