The reception of the King and the Queen of Spain in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires / On Tuesday night, the King and Queen of Spain offered a reception in honor in Buenos Aires for the president of Argentina, Mauricio Macri, and his wife, Juliana Awada, which was attended by around 300 guests, among them figures of politics, culture, the company and the media.

 

 

The actor Ricardo Darin, the singer Andres Calamaro, the model Valeria Mazza, the veteran Argentine actress and television presenter Mirtha Legrand and the communicator Susana Gimenez were some of the guests who personally greeted the heads of state and their wives when they arrived at the act.

The celebration, which Felipe VI and Queen Letizia offered in reciprocity to the gala dinner which the Macris headed on Monday to entertain them on their first state visit to Argentina, took place in the downtown Buenos Aires hotel where the King and the Queen have stayed from Sunday night until today, when their agenda ends in Buenos Aires.

After the greeting of the two marriages to some of the guests, the King and the Queen, the Argentine president and the first lady -all dresses of gala- joined the rest of the guests in another room, where for a few minutes those present were able to come and talk with the hosts.

The writer Maria Kodama, widow of the famous writer Jorge Luis Borges; the journalist Juan Luis Cebrian; the football player Fernando Gago and his wife, the extennis player Gisela Dulko, as well as multitude of Spanish and Argentine industralists, ministers and ex-ministers of the Government of Macri, members of the opposition or military and religious representatives did not lack to the appointment.

After the ceremony, in which there were no speeches, the King and the Queen travelled to the Argentine city of Cordoba (centre), where this Wednesday and already outside the state visit will lead the opening of the VIII International Congress of the Spanish Language, which this year will have the motto “America and the future of Spanish. Culture and education, technology and entrepreneurship”.

The agenda of Mr. Felipe and Mrs. Letizia has been occupied for the last two days by political, economic and cultural meetings. (March 27, 2019, EFE/Practica Español)
