Spainís King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia Visit Rome

ROME Ė Spainís King Felipe VI and his wife, Queen Letizia, arrived in Italy on Wednesday for an official visit coinciding with the fifth month of their reign.

The visit began with a meeting at the Quirinal Palace with Italian President Giorgio Napolitano, 89, and his spouse, Clio Bittoni, followed by a luncheon.

Spanish Minister of Agriculture, Food and Environment Isabel Garcia Tejerina accompanied the royal couple, who will also meet with Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and the chairmen of the Senate and the chamber of deputies.

The two heads of State and their wives posed together for the press and Felipe VI and Napolitano stood later for another picture as they shook hands, after the Italian delegation was presented.

Felipe VI is scheduled to return to Madrid later Wednesday, while Queen Letizia will stay in Rome to address an international conference of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.

The visit by Felipe VI comes five months to the day after he was proclaimed king on June 19 in a ceremony at the Spanish Congress, following the abdication of his father, Juan Carlos I.

During this period, the royal couple has visited eight countries. In June they traveled to Rome to meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican and later went to Portugal, France, the United States for the United Nationsí General Assembly, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Belgium.

In December they are scheduled to travel to Germany and Mexico for the 24th Ibero-American summit that will be held on Dec. 8-9 in the city of Veracruz.
