Go bold or go home.

When it comes to official royal photographs, there's a norm we've come to expect.
The posed inner-Palace snaps are always incredibly formal - smiles perfectly aligned, outfits pressed and primped, and not a single hair out of place.
Colour tones remain relatively consistent - not a fluro in sight - and the overall image in itself is easy on the eyes. A reflection of stability and consistency within the age-old institution.
Well, it usually is... but then a certain international royal decided to up the ante.

While we're very well accustomed to seeing beautiful original photographs of the British royals wearing understated, yet chic ensembles for official photo calls, Queen Letizia of Spain threw us all a gloriously glamorous curve ball.
In brand new photographs released by the Spanish Royal Household, the Queen of the European country is seen wearing a jaw-dropping bright pink dress.
Oh yes, obviously choosing to go bold or go home, Letizia opted not for a regal red, or a muted beige. She went full-blown barbie glam in a short sleeved fuchsia gown - and we are obsessed with it.
Queen Letizia and King Felipe VI released new family portraits as the new year commenced.
The images were released to celebrate the beginning of a new year and decade, with Letizia's husband King Felipe VI also featuring in one of the heavenly snaps.
We can safely say this couple are one of the world's most glamorous - Letizia, who is 47, single-handedly ensured every eyeball in the general vicinity of the photo would be drawn to the stylish duo with her choice in outfit.

Letizia's incredible Carolina Herrera gown features stunning silver floral embroidery, and was paired with a dazzling tiara, named the Fleur de Lys.
Felipe meanwhile was dressed in formal military garb - and together, the couple were nothing less than striking.
Interestingly however, this wasn't the first time we've seen the Queen in the incredible pink dress.
In October 2019, the Queen wore the beautiful gown for an enthronement ceremony in Japan.
Indeed the ever-stylish royal was the image of chic in the bright gown, which was finished with the exact same eye-catching tiara with it.
Perhaps the formal photographs were captured on the same day? Either way, it's a real treat to see the gown captured in all its glory once again!

The Spanish couple share two daughters, Princess Leonor, aged 14, and Infanta Sofia, aged 12, who are also just as regally striking as their parents.
In another image shared by the royal household as part of the 2020 collection, the entire family was pictured together.
This time, Letizia is seen in a bright red dress, while her two daughters wear blue and pink ensembles.

We can't help but revel in the brand new photos.
And while there's no denying Duchess Catherine and Meghan Markle's faultless royal style, Queen Letizia is certainly giving them a solid run for their money!
