US First Lady, Queen of Spain Show Cordiality in Their First Meeting

WASHINGTON – The First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump, and Spain’s Queen Letizia showed cordiality during their first meeting held at the White House on Tuesday, along with their husbands, US President Donald Trump and Spanish King Felipe VI.

After posing smiling for a photo session outside the presidential residence, the four entered the Oval Office, where Trump and King Felipe VI made a statement to the press.

Without the media, Trump and King Felipe VI continued the meeting for a few more minutes, while their wives left the office.

Melania Trump and Queen Letizia went to the Red Room for tea and a chat.

The Queen wore a sleeveless pink dress with a silver belt, while her host came also in a sleeveless dress with white patterns.

Upon arriving at the White House, the Queen of Spain greeted the US president with a handshake and the First Lady with a kiss.

While heading to the Oval Office, the two heads of state were walking ahead, followed by their wives, chatting in a relaxed manner, a few meters behind.

Both are of the same generation, as Trump’s wife is 48-years-old and the Queen will turn 46 in September.

Melania was seen in good physical shape after she underwent kidney surgery on May 14, which forced her to stay in hospital for several days.

Melania later revealed on her Twitter account what she was discussing with the Queen in their private meeting: “Queen Letizia and I enjoyed tea and time together focusing on the ways we can positively impact children.”
