The stop by Their Majesties to the nearby Kingdom was the second international trip since they rose to power. The first was to see the Pope in Vatican City.

King Felipe’s father, King Juan Carlos, worked for decades to maintain good relations with Morocco.

The two countries have numerous issues in common, including the former Spanish colony and now disputed Western Sahara territory, plus two remaining Spanish enclaves in Africa.

Both countries often cooperate on issues of terrorism and immigration.

Separately, the Royal Household confirmed to Spanish media outlets that King Felipe and Queen Letizia will follow royal tradition and vacation in Palma de Mallorca for at least a few days this summer.

Queen Sofia is a big fan of staying in Palma  and Marivent Palace, but Queen Letizia is less keen on spending her vacation in the public eye.
