As the Alamo City continues to celebrate our Tricentennial, we prepare to receive the King and Queen of Spain during June 16-18. King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia will be here inaugurate two major art exhibits, tour historic sites and will be guests at an official dinner at the Pearl prepared by local chefs Johnny Hernandez, Elizabeth Johnson and Steven McHugh where they will showcase San Antonio’s designation as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.

“San Antonio is proud to commemorate the special bonds that tie us to Spain,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg. “We welcome their Majesties during our Tricentennial year to collaborate and build a stronger foundation now and in the future. The everlasting impact of Spain’s culture is woven into the fabric of San Antonio’s legacy for generations to come.”

They are set to open the exhibition, “Designing America: Spain’s Imprint in the United States,” which will be presented by the Fundación Consejo España-Estados Unidos and hosted by Bexar County at the County Courthouse. The exhibit is an interactive exploration of Spain’s architectural and cultural legacy in the U.S. It opens to the public June 18. The second exhibition, “Spain: 500 Years of Spanish Painting from the Museums of Madrid,” includes art never before seen in the U.S. The exhibition at the San Antonio Museum of Art will open to the public June 23 to Sept. 16. They will also tour the Spanish Governor’s Palace and Mission San Jose, which is among five missions in the city that are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Here at Style Lush TV, we’re especially looking forward to seeing Queen Letizia, also dubbed the Queen of Style. The former ABC journalist and CNN+ News Anchor’s impeccable style is world renowned and we love to see her switch it up from Regal to Business to Casual with such ease. Here’s a look back at some our favorite Queen Letizia Style Moments!
