We've gotta feeling that Queen Letizia had a good night in Mexico City! The Spanish monarch enjoyed a performance by the Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo Nawasha — whose actual name is Jaime Luis Gomez — on Monday, November 13, during the official welcome dinner of the World Cancer Leaders Summit with Mexico's President Enrique Peña Nieto and his wife Angelica Rivera at the Los Pinos residence.

The American singer had King Felipe VI’s wife on her feet as he performed hits like I Gotta Feeling at the formal affair. Taboo, a cancer survivor, told attendees at the event, “The power of the people is stronger than people in power.”

Letizia, who is the honorary president of Spanish Association Against Cancer, appeared to have a great time as the hip hop artist performed and put his arm around her during the dinner. The royal mom-of-two stunned wearing a black jumpsuit by Felipe Varela that showed off her toned arms. Letizia completed her ensemble with statement diamond earrings and sweeping her tresses up into a chic ponytail.

 

Prior to the dinner, the Queen had a meeting with Mexico’s president and first lady. Enrique Peña Nieto thanked Her Majesty for the support and the solidarity of her government and the Spanish people following Mexico’s devastating earthquakes in September.
