Today King Felipe and Queen Letizia attended the Prince of Girona Foundation awards ceremony in that Catalan community.

He said he wanted to make the Crown “more present in this land” and once again highlighted his commitment to “our Parliamentary Monarchy.”

The King’s daughter, Princess Leonor is the current Princess of Asturias and of Girona.

Queen Letizia appeared with a short hairdo today, but it appears to be the faux bob she’s worn before.

Separately, this week Spain’s armed forces saluted their new chief during a ceremony at the Royal Palace in Madrid.

King Felipe has named Jaime Alfonsín Alfonso as Chief of the Royal Household, and is adding a diplomatic aide post. He is also making sure his parents, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, keep some staff at their disposal.

King Felipe’s efforts at restoring the Crown’s standing with the Spanish public came as a Balearic Islands judge decided to try his sister, Infanta Cristina, on corruption related charges connected with her husband’s business dealings.

Prosecutors disagree with the judge and are continuing to fight his decision to include the Infanta in the proceedings.

  1. Queen Letizia does NOT have a new haircut. Her hair is simply pinned up. She’s worn this hair style before.
