Move aside, Kate and William! As of Thursday, June 19th, Spain has a new King and Queen, and they're stealing the spotlight. Prince Felipe of Asturias, 46, became King Felipe VI of Spain when his father King Juan Carlos abdicated the throne, and Felipe's wife has become Queen Consort. As Spain starts a new chapter and Queen Letizia steps into her new role, the world has taken yet another look at the stunning royal from Spain.

On Thursday, the crown was handed to King Felipe in a no-frills ceremony. The King wore a military uniform, and Spain's new Queen glittered in a crystal-embellished coat by one of her favorite designers, Felipe Varela.

Queen Letizia, 41, has been a fashion icon since she became a Princess in May 2004. Often compared to the Duchess of Cambridge, we love Letizia's style because while she does wear a lot of classic silhouettes and has a seriously impressive blazer collection, she's also not afraid to take risks. We can't imagine Duchess Kate rocking a silk jumpsuit, can you?!
