Queen Letizia spent most of the week on a landmark whirlwind tour of Central America.
Her Majesty’s stops in Honduras and El Salvador mark the monarch’s first international solidarity and cooperation visits of her young tenure.
Such trips, which include visits with local leaders and citizens, are meant to highlight and promote Spanish aid efforts.
By taking on the task, Queen Letizia is following in the footsteps of Queen Sofia, known for her international aid promotion trips.
The trips are also a chance for Spain to promote cultural and economic relations with its former colonies.
