Members of the Spanish Royal Family honored King Felipe’s father, King Juan Carlos, last week.
The Royal Household last year kept Don Juan Carlos away from a celebration of the Spanish Constitution, which he signed.
This year there appears to be a pivot to celebrating the King who abdicated in 2014 and helped lead his country’s transition to Democracy during the 1970’s and 80’s.
King Felipe praised his father during the Pascua Militar ceremony at the Royal Palace in Madrid, which coincides every year with Epiphany.
Earlier, family and guests were at Zarzuela Palace for King Juan Carlos’ 80th birthday.
Infanta Cristina, whose husband was convicted of financial crimes, was not in the official pictures.
