The cream coral kaftan, complete with a navy-blue stripe along the neckline and centre, retails at €125 (£106). Designed by Dear Prudence, it comes complete with a knotted belt matching the dress colour.

The light fabric, complete with cut along the leg, made the dress ideal for Mallorca which is currently sweltering in a 39C heatwave.

Spain’s most senior royals were pictured visiting El txoko de Martin, a famed restaurant on Majorca, owned by celebrated Basque chef Martín Berasategui.

Letizia was accompanied by her husband, King Felipe, and their two daughters.

Princess Leonor, aged 15, wore light blue dungarees over a white shirt.

Infanta Sofia, her 14-year-old sister, opted for a white top and short light blue, jean style, skirt.

King Felipe was also dressed casually, in blue jeans and a light blue speckled shirt.

All four royals wore masks to help protect against coronavirus.

On her feet, Letizia wore black espadrilles, a type of traditional footwear indigenous to the Balearic Islands.

Other senior royals were spotted wearing espadrilles, which are flat and tied around the ankle, earlier on the Mallorca trip.

Much of the Mediterranean, including Mallorca, has been enveloped by an intense heatwave.

Earlier this week Italy recorded temperatures of 48.8C (119.8F).

If confirmed, this would be the hottest temperature ever recorded in Europe.

Greece and Algeria have suffered from major wildfires due to the heat, which experts argue is being made worse by climate change.

Thus far, the Spanish royals have made four public appearances during their visit to Mallorca.

Earlier in the summer they were pictured walking through Sierra de Tramuntana, and later visited Palma yacht club.

They also dined with Queen Sofia, mother to the current king.

Letizia first met Felipe VI in 2002, at a dinner party, and there was an instant connection between the two.

They were married in May 2004, at Madrid’s Almudena Cathedral.

Before joining the Spanish royal family, Letizia worked as a television newsreader.

She is the daughter of Jesús José Ortiz Álvarez, a journalist, and nurse María de la Paloma Rocasolano Rodríguez.

Before beginning her career, Letizia studied at the Complutense University of Madrid and the Institute for Studies in Audiovisual Journalism.

In 2014 King Juan Carlos abdicated handing the throne to his son, King Felipe VI.
