Queen Letizia in Zagreb to Fight Childhood Obesity
Spain’s Queen Letizia has travelled to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, to take part in the Congress on Prevention of Childhood Obesity. The congress was organised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Government of Croatia.
The Queen later sat down in the auditorium to listen to the inaugural session of the morning, during which there were interventions from the Mayor of Zagreb, the Croatian Health Minister, the WHO’s Regional Executive Director for Europe, and First Lady Sanja Musić Milanović.
It was then time for Queen Letizia to offer a few words – a speech, delivered entirely in English, that marked the ending of the first session of the morning, with the Queen joking that she was “the last speaker before coffee break, so please be patient, it will be less than five minutes.”
Before Her Majesty went back to Madrid, the Queen participated in a meeting with the WHO’s Regional Executive Director for Europe, Mr Robb Butler. She also took part in a cultural programme offered to attendants at the Congress on the Prevention of Childhood Obesity.
The Spanish Queen participated in this conference due to her role as Special Ambassador for Nutrition of the United Nations for the Food and Agriculture Organisation.Filed under Spain
