IMAGES: Spanish Royals At Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral

King Felipe, Queen Letizia, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia all attended Queen Elizabeth’s funeral in London this month.

King Felipe and Queen Letizia paid their respects to the late queen while she was laying in state. All four attended a reception for funeral guests and sat together during the funeral services.

The funeral was the first time all four top Spanish royals were seen together in public in years, especially after King Juan Carlos left the country for an exile in the Middle East following investigations of fiscal impropriety.

Royals Work During Mallorca Vacations

Members of the Spanish Royal Family made the rounds in Mallorca earlier this month for their traditional summer vacations.

King Felipe met with Balearic Islands officials at Almudaina Palace in the city of Palma and also met with civil society during a reception at Marivent Palace.

Marivent has been the Royal Family’s private quarters while in Mallorca but King Felipe and Queen Letizia have worked to open the grounds to the public under pressure from local officials.

Queen Sofia is fond of Marivent Palace and usually arrives in Mallorca before other royals and stays the longest.

Their Majesties earlier this month also made a public walk-through the Mallorca community of Valldemossa with Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia.

Princess Leonor, Infanta Sofia Play Increasingly Public Role

Princess Leonor, heir to the Spanish throne, and her sister, Infanta Sofia, have taken an increasingly public role as they prepare to be active members of the Spanish Royal Family.

The Princess of Asturias, 16, and the infanta, 15, have been making more official appearances with their parents — King Felipe and Queen Letizia. But they have also been spending more time in public alone.

The sisters, for example, attended a women’s soccer tournament in Denmark last month.

Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia were with their parents in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela to make an offering to St. James the Great.

King Felipe went through a similar process during his time as Prince of Asturias in preparation for his public duties.

Queen Tests Positive For COVID-19

Queen Letizia tested positive for COVID-19 and has suspended her public agenda, Spanish media outlets reported yesterday.

The Queen, who is said to have minor symptoms, last attended the Princess of Girona Foundation awards Monday. She was also active during the NATO summit in Madrid.

Princess Leonor, Infanta Sofia Make Key Visit To Catalan Region

Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia visited the Catalan region of Girona this weekend ahead of the Princess of Girona Foundation awards yesterday.

Princess Leonor, as heir to the Spanish throne, is princess of Asturias and also Girona. Her sister, Infanta Sofia, joined her for a tour of the Dali Museum and to meet area residents.

The visit was notable because it was part of preparing the princess and the infanta for solo events. Also, Girona is known for being skeptical of the monarchy.

King Felipe and Queen Letizia joined their daughter for other events associated with the awards, including meetings at the Albeniz Palace in Barcelona. The awards ceremony itself was also in Barcelona.

Spanish Royal Household

The prince or princess of Girona was the title held by the heir to the Aragonese throne. The prince or princess of Asturias title belonged to the heir to the Castillian throne. The two kingdoms fused hundreds of years ago. That’s why Princess Leonor holds both titles, among others.

Biden, NATO Leaders Get Royal Welcome

King Felipe and Queen Letizia mobilized to welcome U.S. President Biden and other NATO members for this week’s summit in Madrid.

Their Majesties greeted delegation heads at the Madrid Royal Palace Throne Room and then offered a dinner.

The King and Queen were particularly focused on President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.

There was widespread concern in Spain when the U.S. president failed to call or meet with the king or prime minister for weeks after his inauguration last year.

And during the Obama administration, the president delayed and then had to cut short an official visit to Madrid.

Former President Trump invited King Felipe and Queen Letizia for a state dinner at the White House but then the pandemic hit.

This week King Felipe welcomed President Biden at the airport and then held a brief meeting at the Royal Palace.
