Security Elevated For King’s Proclamation

Spanish media outlets are reporting that security forces are beefing up their anti-terrorism stance in advance of King Felipe VI’s proclamation on June 19th.

King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia, Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia host Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and his wife for a state dinner at the Royal Palace in Madrid.

As workers prepare the Congress of Deputies building for the event, security forces are mulling whether the new King should ride an open or closed car.

It appears that Don Felipe wants an open top, especially on his ride from the Congress to the Royal Palace.

Media outlets are also reporting that King Juan Carlos will not attend the proclamation to not upstage his son.

Infanta Cristina and her husband, embroiled in a corruption scandal, will also not be attending.
