King Visits Catalonia, Meets With Separatist Leader

King Felipe last week made headlines by traveling to Catalonia for the second trip to the Spanish autonomous community of his reign.

King Felipe’s visit to Spanish car company SEAT S.A.’s factory in Martorell came as the Catalan government plans ways of seceding from Spain, or at least securing a vote on the issue.

Observers saw the image of King Felipe being behind the wheel of a SEAT car with Catalan President Artur Mas as deeply symbolic.
