Members of the modern Spanish Royal Family have always been said to be close to their people.
Their agenda in recent weeks has been evidence of that.
Last week King Felipe and Queen Letizia visited communities located to the south of Madrid — Villanueva de los Infantes, Tomelloso and Talavera de la Reina.
Their Majesties greeted large crowds and made balcony appearances, as is the custom in large parts of Spain.
The King and Queen also attended a mass at the Almudena Cathedral adjacent to the Madrid Royal Palace for the victims of the recent earthquake in Ecuador.
King Juan Carlos was in Switzerland last week to support Seville in its game against Liverpool for the UEFA final.
And Queen Sofia attended a concert in the community of El Escorial, site of a large royal palace and pantheon, to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Charles III’s birth.
Earlier this month King Felipe, news outlets reported, made a spontaneous stop at a roadside restaurant for lunch. It seems bad weather affected his itinerary.
