Their Majesties the King and Queen will travel to the United States of America from June 14 to 19. During their stay, they will visit New Orleans (Louisiana) and San Antonio (Texas), two cities that celebrate the three hundred years of their respective foundations this year and that hold important historical testimonies of the deep and close ties that unite Spain and the United States.

Later, on the 19th, King Felipe and Queen Letizia will officially visit Washington D.C., where they will be received at the White House by the President of the United States, Donald Trump, and the First Lady, Melania Trump.

i see that you are in texas - you can still make it to san antonio tomorrow ;)
 
It is a beautiful trip. The kings have been received in a wonderful way, as always traveling to the US, but in New Orleans, it has been very special because they have treated them with immense affection, especially their mayor LaToya Cantrell who has spoiled them every day.
Now San Antonio. It will be difficult to overcome the N. O. but we will see ... hahaha
 
apparently F&L got the afternoon off in san antonio :)
i know it happens that royals get time off during official visits, but it is kind of rare so always makes me wonder what they do during that time... mostly rest, i assume, as official visits must be a tiring thing!
 
I wonder if there's much coverage of the visit by the US Media?
 
According to the newspaper El Pais, King Felipe will meet tomorrow with Presidents of the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank, Jim Yong Kim and Luis Alberto Moreno, with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, with the leader of the Republican majority in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, and with the leader of the Democratic minority in the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.

There was a short "blurb" on my local (Houston, TX) newscast Friday or Saturday night, but I have not seen anything since (caveat: I am not a regular newscast watcher - too depressing & also too one-sided for my tastes; I like all sides to be presented truthfully & objectively). On-line is still all Harry & Meaghan all the time, which was already old by the day of the wedding.
