Queen Sofia of Spain Visits Haiti

Haitian president Michel Martelly and First Lady Sohpia Martelly had the company of European royalty this weekend... Queen Sophia of Spain was in Haiti for a two day visit...

Queen Sofia Of Spain

I like the sounds of that...

Her Majesty, Queen Sophia of Spain... and Her Excelency, First Lady Sophia of Haiti...

You never know... That could be the answer to a Jeopardy question some day!

The Associated Press reports...

The queen's arrival comes out of summer trip Martelly took to Spain, his first visit to Europe since he was inaugurated in May. The new president met with King Juan Carlos.

Martelly said he hopes the queen's visit will serve as an example of how Haiti can forge new relations with countries that have long overlooked Haiti as a place to invest and explore as tourists.

As far as what the the Queen and the President discussed, Martelly told AP...

"We talked about our families, her kids, my kids, the king, politics... It was a little opportunity for me to meet the queen, thank her, and do what I'm supposed to do: Portray a new Haiti, bring confidence in our partners, our friends -- let them know that this is no longer a country that wants to beg for money."

The queen did assure the President of Haiti that "Now, and for all time, Haiti can count on Spain and all Spaniards..."

President Martelly has been saying since his inauguration that Haiti is open for business, I hope that her Majesty 'Vinn Investi!'
