King Addresses Military Leaders

King Felipe addressed Spanish military leaders at the Madrid Royal Palace throne room yesterday for the first major royal event of the year.

The so-called Pascua Militar takes place on Epiphany and is meant to commemorate the armed forces and address Spain’s defense needs.

The King said the military remained committed to defending the Constitution and the country’s interests.

King Charles III started the Pascual Militar in the 1700’s. King Juan Carlos resurrected the tradition when he became king.
