The Queen of Spain is known not only for her impeccable wardrobe, but also for her flawless figure, shiny hair and radiant skin. To take care of herself and maintain an incredible shape that causes the delight of royal fans, she is helped by a special diet and training regime. Critics even sometimes call the wife of Philip VI “too thin”. However, the former journalist, who became part of the Spanish royal family in 2004, said on the eve of the wedding that she has a healthy relationship with food and diets. Then the bride of the Crown Prince said: “I don’t have any problems. I eat a lot. I’m just like that, it’s my body type.”
However, thinness and well-defined musculature are different things. It is obvious that the royal person does certain exercises to support the desired reliefs and emphasize moderate musculature with stylish outfits. So what does Letizia do for a slim and toned figure?

Letizia’s former personal trainer Jose Ignacio Hernandez-Coronado spoke about her special regime: “The Queen does strength exercises every other day. She always recommends them when anyone asks her. If the king is free, he also joins her in the gym.” By the way, the queen spends part of her annual salary, which is 139,610 euros, on fitness, investing in her own appearance and vigor and using the services of a personal trainer and working in the gym, as well as attending yoga classes and taking zumba lessons.
Jose said that Letizia does a “combo-flexing of the arms on the biceps and shoulders, as well as extending the triceps on the block” to tone her arms. They really look taut and embossed, which is impossible not to notice when the Queen of Spain chooses open summer dresses or evening ensembles without sleeves. The coach added that the “favorite exercise” of the titled person is “push-ups on the triceps from the wall.” “And then she got addicted to an exercise bike, on which she works out to music to burn a lot of calories,” added Jose.

The palace staff also testified that Her Majesty adheres to a strict daily routine, which can also help her maintain the desired shape. Many monarchs maintain a strict regime. Among them is 95-year-old Elizabeth II. Both royals have their own diet.
It is believed that the Spanish queen adheres to the Perricone diet, preferring healthy Mediterranean food. Named after Dr. Perricone – a famous nutritionist whose nutrition plans have been followed by many celebrities, from Gwyneth Paltrow to Kate Moss – the diet is very popular. Letizia explained what she was eating during an official visit to the Torrejoncillos School in Caceres. She said that her favorite foods are vegetables and fruits, and salads and purees make up 80 percent of her daily diet. She is also happy to see fish, eggs, cabbage and spinach on her table. All these foods are rich in fiber and protein, which are considered key to the Mediterranean diet.

In addition, it is known that Letizia avoids sugar, ready meals, frozen foods, pizza, sodas, alcohol and even coffee. “To be honest, she doesn’t drink alcohol, which sometimes becomes a problem for toasts,” the insider said. “King Felippe VI, however, is a wine connoisseur and has a private wine cellar in the palace.”
