President Barack Obama will host the Spanish royal couple in September, during the Washington leg of a five-day US trip that will also take them to Florida.

Obama will welcome King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia to the White House on September 15, the White House said Monday.

"Their visit reinforces the strong and enduring ties between the American and Spanish people," the statement said.

The Spanish monarchs will also visit Miami and St. Augustine, Florida during their September 14 to 18 American stay.

Last month, the royal couple traveled to Mexico, their first state visit to the Americas since their June 2014 coronation.
