Members of the Spanish Royal Family presided over National Day festivities in Madrid this week amid the ongoing constitutional crisis.
With the Catalan government threatening independence, attendance was up at the Fiesta Nacional military parade.
The Ministry of Defense and other government organizers moved the event north to accommodate more spectators.
The King held a brief reception at the Royal Palace after the parade. He has otherwise cleared his agenda to deal with the crisis.
The day was not a total success. One of the fighter jets that participated in the pageantry crashed and the pilot died.
