Queen Letizia and King Felipe VI joined King Carl Gustaf XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia for an evening reception in Sweden.

The Spanish monarch suffered a slip-up during a photocall while meeting other royals and personalities in Stockholm.

While greeting the evening reception guests, Queen Letizia dropped her clutch revealing the contents of her handbag.

Photographers captured the moment where the personal belongings of the Spanish royal were scattered across the floor.

Some of the items included lipstick and her phone.

Queen Letizia turned around and swiftly swept her belongings into her bag as staff quickly came to help her.

After collecting all her items, she turned around with a smile and continued to greet guests next to the Swedish Royal Family.

However, she appeared flustered despite her efforts to carry on with her duties as if nothing had happened.

The Swedish press have been highly critical of the Spanish royal and described the slip-up as a “mistake”.

Swedish magazine Svensk Dam said: “Panic during the State visit.

“Queen Silvia of Sweden is shocked.”

The publication explained what happened can seem like “a small detail” but it iss in fact a “big mistake”.

They said something like this should never happen in such an important event.

“A big mistake like this one shouldn’t happen during such an important State visit, where everything should be carefully planned.”

The Swedish press also explained the royals should be aware of where they are and “especially Queen Letizia”.

“She panicked and tried to save the situation so her handbag wouldn’t be the centre of attention,” they said.

The fact that Queen Letizia dropped her handbag during a photocall and then collected her belongings from the floor hasn’t been seen as a positive move by the Swedish.

Letizia was wearing an elegant grey Cherubina wrap dress which she combined with Prada heels.

She finished the look with beautiful drop earrings and her green clutch.

After the evening reception, the king and queen of Spain carried out a two-day state visit to Sweden.
