Joaquín Sorolla (1863–1923), known as the ‘master of light’, is one of Spain’s most celebrated artists.

Sorolla is famed for his portraits, landscapes and monumental works of social and historical themes.

He demonstrated exceptional skill in painting portraits, landscapes and monumental works centred on social and historical subjects.

The Spanish artist’s signature style is marked by a masterful portrayal of both individuals and scenery, often basking in radiant sunlight.

After laying a wreath to honour military personnel, the pair headed off to visit the site of the new Mary Elizabeth’s Hospital for Children, Teens, and Expecting Families, in Copenhagen, due to open in 2026.

Letizia  accompanied Mary to the hospital, which was named after the Australian-born future Queen. The royal pair observed the future design plans for the hospital and met children requiring care from the institution.

The new hospital focuses on children’s health as well as teenagers and pregnant mothers. It is still under construction and should be ready for purpose in 2026.

For the occasion, the Danish mother-of-four donned a very elegant black and white tweed skirt with a black blouse, which was embellished at the collar to add some flair to the outfit.

Mary paired the look with a pair of black heeled pumps, but forwent a bag, keeping the look minimal and practical.

The Crown Princess, known for her elegant sense of style, opted for a minimal glowing makeup look. Some highlights and a dash of bronze complimented her dewy complexion, and a touch of mascara brought definition to her lashes.

Meanwhile, Letizia added a splash of colour and donned a stylish keyhole green midi dress with beige nude pumps.

Letizia opted for a chic make-up look, pairing her fresh base with a natural lip, and light brown smoky eyeshadow.

Her brown locks were styled in a wavy blow-dry that cascaded down her right shoulder.

The royals appeared to be in high spirits as they toured the site and learned of the team’s progress. Letizia and Mary also met with local children and their mother’s, who were, at the time, playing with arts and crafts.

The Spanish Queen shook the hands of patients and appeared pensive as she chatted with parents.

The hospital’s foundation was laid last spring, and the institution won’t open for another three years, but Mary has taken a keen interest in the project.

Mary also watched local children draw and play in one of the site’s common areas. The royal mother-of-four has long been recognised for her work in aiding children’s health, and she is the patron of several organisations and foundations on the matter.

The hospital, which was designed by architect, Stig Vesterager Gothelf, will have a play area that will play a huge part in the well-being of its young patients, the Righospitalet’s website read.
