King Felipe today made his most direct comments against independence efforts in the Autonomous Community of Catalonia.
“Today I want to transmit a message of serenity and confidence,” said His Majesty during an event in Madrid.
In recent days King Felipe had cleared parts of his schedule to deal with developments in the divided Catalan Parliament. He had said, “These are difficult days.”
Today Don Felipe added, “The Constitution will prevail. Let nobody doubt that. Our Constitutional order and the Constitutional principles that dictate our coexistence will remain fully in place.”
The King said, “The Constitutional Spain of our days belongs to all of us, to the Spanish public. On them our national sovereignty rests.”
