The mother-of-two, 46, wore the below-the-knee number to greet Martín Vizcarra and his spouse Maribel Diaz at the royal palace in the Spanish capital.
The ever-stylish Queen paired the black and grey garment with a cream waterfall coat and elegant red velvet stilettos.

As the special guests were welcomed for their three day visit the group also witnessed a parade by the royal guard, after which the President of Peru inspected the battalion.

The visit comes after the British Ambassador to Morocco praised the Duchess of Sussex for avoiding the usual ‘pomp and pageantry’ of royal tours – days after Letizia and King Felipe visited the country.
Diplomat Thomas Reilly told Harper’s Bazaar: ‘This was a very different kind of trip—personal, informal and away from the pomp and pageantry of traditional visits.

‘Moroccans loved the way [Meghan and Harry] were so spontaneous and cared so deeply.’
The British royals packed in nine separate engagements over three days, taking in a helicopter ride to the Atlas Mountains, a visit to an equine centre in Rabat, as well as an audience with King Mohammed VI of Morocco.
While King Felipe and Queen Letizia met with schoolchildren during their visit like Harry and Meghan, there was not the same easy-going atmosphere captured on camera.
