The mother-of-two was joined on her visit by the Minister of Education, Pilar Alegría, the President of Aragon, Javier Lambán, and the mayor of the municipality, Luis Zubieta. 

The monarch accessorised the outfit with matching navy espadrille wedges by brand Castañer and simple gold bamboo canes earrings to round off the stunning ensemble.

Wearing a simple white mask that didn’t distract from her outfit, Queen Letizia also wore a single gold Karen Hallam ring on one hand.

Students clambered aboard a wooden ship in the playground in order to get closer to Queen Letizia and hear what she had to say

While attending Odón de Buen, Queen Letizia chatted happily with students from the school as they crowded round her and showed her their playground.

She looked relaxed and in high spirit during the event which saw her meet the school staff. 

Before the monarch made her visit the town’s mayor, Luis Zubieta, said, ‘[We all] have the responsibility to strengthen a quality education that contributes to the formation of our boys and girls as future members of a responsible, critical citizenry, democratic and free.’

The Spanish royal appeared to listen intently as young students of the Odon de Buen school spoke with her on the first day of term 

‘Odón de Buen [himself], a native of this town and considered the founder of Spanish oceanography will continue to inspire new generations. ‘ 

The school prides itself on that fact that immigrant students represent 25% of the total student body.

It’s considered a ‘national benchmark’ due to its modern facilities, which the Government of Aragon and the Zuera City Council teamed together to make possible, with the help of local educators. 

Queen Letizia’s visit comes after her own daughter, HRH Princess Leonor of Asturias, the future Queen of Spain, made her way to Wales to attend the boarding school, UWC Atlantic College.

She later joined the group in another area of the playground, where they could be seen posing for a picture  

During one stage  of the visit, Queen Letizia leant down to speak directly to one young student at the school  

The heir to the Spanish throne Leonor, 15, has been enrolled on a £67,000, two-year course to study for her International Baccalaureate diploma at UWC Atlantic College.

UWC Atlantic College has a proven track record educating royalty. King Willem-Alexander studied there in the Eighties and Belgian heir to the throne Elisabeth graduated last year.

King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain dropped Leonor off at Madrid’s Adolfo Suarez Barajas Airport last month, hugging her before she made her way to her departure gate. 

Princess Alexia of the Netherlands, 16, the second eldest child of the King and Queen of the Netherlands, is also attending the school this year.
