The Queen Letizia has closed its institutional agenda this Friday with a telematic intervention in one of the most important international events related to the issue of nutrition. The wife of Felipe VI has been one of the participants in the jopening ceremony of the World Food Forum, which is celebrated during the next week in the city of Rome. A meeting in which numerous leaders and specialists will intervene and which, this year, focuses its attention on the fight against hunger and malnutrition, as well as on the importance of maintaining healthy diets.
These are issues where Queen Letizia works steadily since she was appointed FAO Special Ambassador for Nutrition in 2015. And it is that since always, Doña Letizia has shown a special interest in food care and healthy diets, something she shares with Queen Sofía.
In her brief speech, of just over three minutes, Doña Letizia highlighted the importance of the contribution of the new generations in the transformation of food systems, which must be more sustainable and resilient. “Now it’s up to you, the young people, to participate and contribute with your entrepreneurship and energy to the necessary transformation of food systems. Healthy diets must be guaranteed for all, ensuring access for all children to a healthy school menu by 2030. Women, indigenous peoples, small producers and young people must be at the center of decision-making within the food system. They are easy to pronounce sentences, but very complex when it comes to being implemented “, said the Queen in her message.

The intervention of the Queen has been recorded from the room that she usually uses in the Palacio de la Zarzuela for your meetings, with the gardens as a background. On this occasion, Doña Letizia appears staring at the camera and dressed in a fuchsia design by Moisés Nieto. It is a model made exclusively for the Queen by the dressmaker, which Her Majesty premiered last June on the occasion of the ceremony of delivery of the medals of the Order of Civil Merit, which coincided with the anniversary of the proclamation of Felipe VI as Head of State.
This dress, the Reina retrieved it from her closet earlier this week, specifically on Tuesday, when he participated with Don Felipe in the lunch offered at the Royal Palace for the official visit of the President of Angola and his wife to our country. In this way, it seems that the Queen recorded her intervention either before moving to the palace, or afterwards. Most likely it was earlier, since in the afternoon the Kings moved to the Prado Museum for the delivery of the National Awards for Culture and Sports.
In this appointment, in addition to Queen Letizia, other authorities such as Pope Francis, the president of the Council of Ministers of Italy, Mario Draghi or Queen Máxima of the Netherlands will also participate.
