King Speaks To British Parliament

King Felipe spoke to the British parliament today, just like his father King Juan Carlos did decades ago.

Don Felipe and Queen Letizia began a  several-day state visit to the United Kingdom today, which included a visit with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.

During his remarks to Parliament, the King stressed the importance of a united Europe, even as the U.K. seeks to leave the European Union.
