Queen Letizia was appointed during a special ceremony in Rome following her work campaigning against hunger and malnutrition across the world – and said she will use her new role to highlight the benefits of a Mediterranean diet.

She turned heads during a state visit to Honduras last month where she was photographed wearing a tiny black dress, showing off her slender figure.

As a Special Ambassador for the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the UN, she will now raise awareness of global hunger and help drive support around the world to help the problem.

Calling the Mediterranean diet ‘the best example of healthy and sustainable eating’, she used her first address as an ambassador to urge for ‘collective action’ from businesses, governments and individuals around the world to end malnutrition around the world.

The appointment of the FAO special ambassadors has an initial term of two years, which can then be renewed.
