    Princess Letizia Ortiz will soon become the next Queen of Spain as King Juan Carlos announced hisabdication after ruling the country for 39 years on Monday (June 2, 2014). He will be succeeded byhis son, Letizia's 46-year-old husband, Prince Felipe de Borbon.

    Letizia was sometimes compared to Kate Middleton for their modest backgrounds. Like the Duchessof Cambridge, the 41-year-old lady wasn't born to nobility. Her father was a journalist while hermother was a nurse and hospital union representative from a working-class background. She grewup in a middle-class family with two younger sisters in Oviedo before moving to Madrid.

    The pretty Letizia then obtained a masters in broadcast journalism and became a well-known TVpresenter and reporter. She anchored the most viewed evening newscast in Spain: "Telediario 2" aswell as worked for Spain's state-run TVE, Bloomberg TV and CNN+. She even won the Madrid PressAssociation's prestigious Larra Award, for the best Spanish journalist under the age of 30.

    Letizia Ortiz then gave up her high-flying career to get married with Prince Felipe in 2004. Thecouple now have two daughters together, Infanta Leonor de Todos los Santos of Spain and InfantaSofa de Todos los Santos of Spain.

    Besides, Princess Letizia draws comparisons to England's Kate Middleton for their fashionsensibilities. The brunette beauty previously favored Armani suits in pale, business-like colors butshe has been more daring with color in recent years. And despite being a national style icon inSpain, is a repeat-wearer as she has recycled some certain outfits.
