Members of the Royal Family met with government officials, first responders, victims and their families.

Foreign observers have expressed interest at how willing the Spanish Royal Family is to break protocol to comfort grieving families.

Prince Felipe was not at the ceremonies today. He was instead meeting with Chile’s outgoing President Sebastián Piñera and helping inaugurate new President Michelle Bachelet.
