Gloria and Emilio Estefan are already pretty much the unofficial King and Queen of Miami, but the county commission is moving forward with a plan to give the regal couple officially recognized titles.

If all goes as planned the couple is expected to be named Miami-Dade's first official cultural and trade ambassadors.

Commissioner Jean Monestime brought up the proposal to create the new post. It would last for four years and would not come with a salary or any reimbursement of expenses. According to Miami Today, the proposal was adopted on first reading and is headed to public hearing on December 17.

The legislation reads that there are "many great individuals who dedicate their energy and talents to cultural exchange and spreading goodwill on behalf of the citizens of Miami-Dade County," and the new program would officially recognize that.

The Estefans are the preferred first candidates for the program. The requirements of the job already reflect what the Estefans do: promote Miami-Dade abroad and show up at important local events and social functions. In fact, their names are already written in the legislation, though Miami Today reports that their representatives wouldn't confirm the couple would accept the role.
