Simpsons style makeover for Queen Letizia, newest resident of Springfield

QUEEN Letizia has received her greatest public honour yet… a Simpsons style makeover.

Italian artist Alexsandro Palombo, has played up the Queen’s world-famous feminine style, after she impressed him with her ‘strength’ and ‘determination’.

Palombo presents the mother-of-two as the ‘ideal woman’, highlighting her sleek fashion tastes in some illustrations, while in another she wears a military uniform while riding a bull outside the Zarzuela Palace.

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

“She has a fresh, cool look which is far from the usual royal aesthetic. I think it’s very important that there are women like her in our society in order to support important ideals such as equal rights between men and women.

“I captured the essence of her femininity and I’ve chosen outfits that represent her style. 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,” he added.

But Letizia is not the only Royal lady to have a Springfield makeover at the hands of the artist.

Palombo has also transformed the Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen of England herself.

Celebrity royalty have had their fair share of yellow as well, with Kim Kardashian, iconic designer Karl Lagerfeld and US Vogue editor Anna Wintour all being subjects of the artist.

The Simpsons makeover comes at the end of a busy week for the Queen, who celebrated her 42nd birthday on Monday by attending the Luis Carandell Journalism Awards ceremony at the Senate Palace in Madrid, where she made a speech.

Letizia and King Felipe have also hosted visits from the president and first lady of Panama and attended several charity meetings.

But there is no rest for the Royals, who will be jetting off the New York at the end of September, where Felipe will address the UN General Assembly.
