Prince Felipe was in Costa Rica earlier this week attending the sweating-in of that country’s new President Luis Guillermo Solís.
Don Felipe also met other world leaders who attended the ceremonies, and also with local Spaniards.
The Prince of Asturias is the Spain’s official representative to swearing-in ceremonies in Latin America pursuant to a 1996 Spanish Royal Decree.
The idea is to make Spain’s future king closer to the leaders of former Spanish colonies and the wider Ibero-American world.
King Juan Carlos has made a similar push with Arab World monarchies, in an attempt to improve Spain’s economic position. His last stop was in Bahrain.
Don Juan Carlos is also scheduled to make trips to Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
