U.S. first lady Michelle Obama, her mother and daughters Sasha and Malia arrived in Spain on Wednesday (June 29) as part of a six-day tour to Liberia, Morocco and Spain to try to promote girls’ education.

Spain’s Queen Letizia is due to join the first lady on Thursday morning (June 30) at a special ceremony of the “Let Girls Learn” initiative in Madrid.
Michelle Obama spent Sunday (June 26) and Monday (June 27) in Liberia, where she visited a U.S. Peace Corps site and a school with President and Nobel Peace laureate Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
