Wow, I hadn't realised they were going to Cuba as well. It looks like this may prove to be an excellent trip for royal watchers.

Out of curiosity, does their youngest son typically accompany them on these longer trips?

So far, yes he has been on almost all long trips.

I am really looking forward to seeing these photos! Queen Rania is fascinating, and I am sure that the Spanish Royal Family are excellent hosts.

How long is it since they last visited Spain? I seem to recall a visit so it cant be too long surely?

Hopefully there will be many photos of the Jordanian and Spanish royals together when they meet at the airport and the sites they will see.Oh yeah I can't to see the royals at dinner time wearing their sashes and the lady royals wearing their tiaras or a
nice crown what a sight to see.

The Jordanian couple made a state visit to Spain in 1999 and a brief visit in September 2003.
Queen Rania has made several working trips to Spain over the years, the last one being in July 2006 for GAVI.
King Abdullah and Queen Rania were supposed to attend Expo Zaragoza earlier this year but never did for some reason. Maybe that's why they're visiting Spain now just before they start an official visit to South America.

I don't think so. It's an Official Visit, not a State Visit therefore no reception at the airport, tiaras etc. The dinner is at Zarzuela Palace, not at the Royal Palace, for me it all sounds very low-key.

That's kinda of a bummer but still I hope there will atleast be photos of royals with each other.

Don't think we'll see much more that the pics taken prior to the dinner on 18th.

I don't think there's a specific time limit but because they are most important diplomatic meetings between countries they tend to be less common.
State visit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For example Rania usually visits the US once a year for CGI etc but those are not state visits.
