King Makes His Presence Felt In Catalonia

King Felipe held a series of audiences at Albéniz Palace in Barcelona late last month in an effort to make his presence felt in Catalonia.

His Majesty met with attorneys from the Catalan city of Tarragona, which is down the Mediterranean coast from Barcelona.

A third meeting was with Josep Sánchez Llibre, head of the Foment del Treball Nacional, a union of Catalan employers.

The Spanish Royal Household is looking to rebut claims from Catalan nationalists and pro-independence politicians that King Felipe doesn’t have much support in the region.

Albéniz Palace is owned by the Barcelona government but is considered the Royal Family’s official residence there.

His Majesty also attended an awards ceremony focused on logistics during his visit.
