Queen Letizia of Spain has travelled to Los Angeles today where she will be opening the headquarter of Cervantes Insititute in the city tomorrow. Upon arrival in the city, Queen Letizia was received by the Spanish Ambassador to the USA.
Then Letizia chaired a meeting to discuss the potential of Spanish and its cultures in the United States. In the working meeting with the heads of the Institute’s centres in the United States, the attendees analyzed the situation of Spanish, a language that has 60 million speakers in the country.
This new Cervantes Institute Center in the city of Los Angeles was approved by the Council of Ministers, with the aim of promoting “Spanish and the dissemination of culture in Spanish on the west coast of the United States, where the Hispanic presence is especially significant”, as stated in the royal decree that authorizes it.
With the new centre in the great Californian city, there will be seven US cities that will have headquarters of the Cervantes Institute: the centres of New York (opened in 1995), Chicago (1996) and Albuquerque (2000); the Aula Cervantes in Seattle (2007), the Observatory of the Spanish Language at Harvard University (Boston, 2013), the El Paso extension (inaugurated by Luis García Montero on June 23) and, shortly, the centre Los Angeles, considered the Hispanic capital of the US.
Heading towards Queen Letizia Style – Letizia chose her favourite power colour for the first winter appearance in the USA – Red. Queen Letizia was wearing a red Carolina Herrera Cocoon coat in double-faced wool.
The coat featured a collar with lapels, concealed snap fastening and flap pockets. Metallic plaque with Carolina’s initials and hem slit at the back.

Underneath the coat, Letizia was wearing her Roberto Torretta Red Blazer Suit. Since its debut in 2018 at the Valladolid at a commemoration event in March, we have seen the suit many times.
