King Felipe set Spain on track for new national elections unless parties are able to come up with a governing compromise.

After a new round of consultations with party leaders, His Majesty decided against putting forth a new candidate for prime minister.

Today the King took his daughter, the Princess of Asturias, to a soccer match. It signals the Royal Household’s effort to put the heir to the throne closer to the public eye.
