All eyes were on the reunion between Queen Letizia and the first lady of the United States, Jill Biden, in an act against cancer at the Cervantes Institute in New York this past Wednesday. But what has attracted attention has been the comment with which the queen greeted the Spanish ambassador to the United States, Santiago Cabanas. “Give me your hand like a man,” the queen has asked the ambassador, thus suggesting that he squeeze vigorously when they have shaken hands at the entrance of the act. Letizia said it out loud to the ambassador’s bewilderment. The cameras have captured the moment. So much so that the moment appears in the video that the Royal House itself has posted on its social networks to illustrate the queen’s work visit to New York this week. NEITHER the queen nor the ambassador they lost their smile. The moment occurred at the door of the Cervantes Institute in New York, where an event was being held with researchers on the occasion of Cancer Research Day. A spontaneous queen Letizia continued to greet the rest of the guests who were waiting for the visit of she. It is not the first time that the queen brings out her spontaneity. From “Let me finish” that he snapped at the then Prince Felipe, the day of his marriage proposal, to “very well, but you read”, with which he responded to a lady who recommended that he dye his gray hair during a visit to the Madrid Book Fair. Last Monday she also brought out her spontaneity in London, when after the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, a group of admirers waited for her at the Spanish embassy in the British capital. Very nice and grateful When one of them congratulated him on his birthday, Queen Letizia chatted for a few minutes, and said goodbye kindly since she had to take a plane to New York to continue shaking hands vigorously.
