Their Majesties wrote: “Belgium’s pain is today Spain’s pain. The pain in Brussels is the pain of all of Europe. Our unity is also our strength against aggression, for liberty and our peaceful coexistence.”

Other Activities

In recent days the King and Queen attended a concert to honor victims of terrorism in Spain. The country has a long history with the problem.
