The Meaning Of A Picture

The Spanish Royal Household released the first images earlier this month of King Felipe meeting with Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez in the monarch’s office.

As Spanish media outlets often do, they talked to experts to figure out hidden meanings.

For one, the King and the prime minister appear to have a good and comfortable relationship, one expert said.


Some media outlets also noticed an absence of pictures of the King’s parents — King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia.

Perhaps, they thought, the Royal Household wanted to distance the King from his father’s ongoing controversies.

The King and the prime minister meet weekly, and the images came from a gathering that coincided with a meeting of the National Security Council.


The King and Queen have been extremely active ahead of the summer vacation season.
