Queen Letizia of Spain gets a ‘Simpsons’ makeover

“Queen Letizia perfectly represents the ideal modern woman,” said aleXandro. “She's strong, determined and committed to supporting important social causes.”

The illustrator, who is clearly a fan of the Spanish royal, didn't just sketch Letizia in one of her stunning outfits, but in several.

One shows the mother of two in full military uniform riding a bull in front of Madrid’s Palace of Zarzuela, while another has her in a glamorous pink gown with a miniature bull on a leash.

“I captured the essence of her femininity and I've chosen outfits that represent her style,” the artist said. “She has an elegant personality but at the same time she is a bit irreverent, so she is perfect for an episode of The Simpsons.”

Letizia is hardly the first royal to be "cartoon-ified" by the Italian illustrator. aleXsandro has previously turned the Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge into Simpsons characters, as well as celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Karl Lagerfeld.


The Spanish queen celebrated her 42nd birthday on Sept. 15 by attending the Luis Carandel Journalism Awards ceremony at the Senate Palace in Madrid, where the former news anchor delivered a speech.

Today, Letizia and her husband, King Felipe, travelled to the Galician city of Ourense to visit elementary school children attending their first day of classes since the end of summer holidays.
