King and Queen of Spain begin visit to the United States in New Orleans

Baku, June 16, AZERTAC

King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain have begun their trip to the United States in New Orleans, Louisiana, where they arrived last evening at sunset at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Upon arrival, they were greeted by Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell among other officials.

According to Royal Central, they are in New Orleans to celebrate the city's tricentennial. Lousiana was a Spanish colony from 1763 to 1802. After celebrations in the Pelican State, they will head a little further west to San Antonio, Texas, to celebrate its 300th anniversary. Of course, Texas is another former colony of Spain from 1690–1821. Their trip later moves on to the US capital of Washington D.C. where they will visit the White House and meet with President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump on 19 June.
