THE KING AND THE QUEEN ARRIVE TO NEW ORLEANS AT THE START OF THEIR TOUR IN U.S.A.

New Orleans (U.S.A.) / The King and Queen of Spain are already in New Orleans, the first stop on a tour of the United States that will also take them to San Antonio and Washington, where they will be welcomed by US President Donald Trump on 19 June.

New Orleans and San Antonio commemorate this year tercentenary of their foundation, so Felipe VI intends to vindicate the deep mark that Spain left in both cities in many areas.

The plane which moved Mr. Felipe and Mrs. Letizia from Madrid arrived at the New Orleans airport in the company of the new Foreign Minister, Josep Borrell, on his first trip abroad since he took office a week ago.

A typical band from New Orleans entertained the welcome, which was the Mayor and the Governor of Louisiana.

The King and the Queen will spend two days in the city of Mississippi where they will open an exhibition, that represents the participation that Spain had in the birth of the United States, at Palacio del Cabildo, one of the emblematic buildings.

On Saturday, the King and the Queen will fly to San Antonio, the second most important city in Texas where they will also carry out an intense cultural agenda.

The trip of Mr. Felipe and Mrs. Letizia will close in Washington with the appointment with Trump and his wife Melania.
