Yesterday Antonio NarvŠez, took the oath of new member of the Constitutional Court in Zarzuela. During JC's reign all members of public institutions who took an oath at Zarzuela did so with a Bible and a crucifix (and the Constitution) present. From now on they'll be asked if they want any religious symbol present. NarvŠez chose to have the Bible and crucifix present.


I like. I like that a lot.  Yes

Me too. It was high time.  Nono



Today Felipe presided over a meeting of the National Security Council in Zarzuela. The President, the Vice President, seven Ministers, the Director of the National Centre of Intelligence, the Chief of Defence and various state secretaries and directors of security departments attended the meeting:

Me too. I can't believe American presidents still swear in on a Bible. Hello! Separation of church and state anyone?

They are not forced to have a Bible present at the oath of office. Teddy Roosevelt and John Quincy Adams did not use one.

I didn't know a ceremonial monarch would preside over a meeting of the National Seurity Council. He looks like a true head of state. I'm impressed.

He's seemed to jump right into his kingly role with nary a seam or blip. It helps that he picked a wife who pulls in tandem towards the same goals, unlike some other royal wives...  Whistle

Despite all the criticism leveled at them for various things over the years, credit must go to Sofia and JC both for having prepared him for it. Bravo.

Of all the royals today, he's the one I'd like to meet. Smart as hell with interesting experiences, down to earth and not snobby yet fully aware of his ancestry, destiny and responsibilities... he's got it all balanced.

Lucky, lucky Leti. Lucky Spain.

Felipe will shine internationally too. How many Heads of state are so young, so handsome, speak perfect English ? The last 10 years, Leti has helped him to improve the communication skill and he has also become more an intellectual.

As I have said before I think history will be kind to J-C-and I think he demonstrated his old political acumen when he finally decided to go

Also-it is not easy living in an unhappy marriage that one can't escape and I think he and Sofia did their best given the situation

Felipe is very impressive so far

In fact I think Felipe, Philippe and Willem Alexander have all done well so far

In this video you can see how the ambassadors are escorted to the Royal Palace by the Royal Guard. The ceremony has changed very little since the XVIII century. (from 20:22 to 24:35): http://www.rtve.es/alacar...abierta-19-07-14/2669341/

Marinerito, thanks for the video!  Star

It's a great recap of their activities for the past week and it has lots of footage of their Morocco visit. It also has the history between Morocco and Spain. The carriage ride for all the new ambassadors must be something they won't forget easily. The carriage is as impressive as the British royals use.

The video also shows Letizia's visit to Asturias. Photos don't do her justice. She's so natural at greeting the crowds. She kissed a man in wheelchair on the cheeks.

It also has a segment about the abdication and proclamation toward the end. It looks like there's a book or books about the abdication or biographies or something. I wonder what they're talking about. I wish I can understand Spanish.  Sad Can any Spanish poster give a brief summary of that short segment?

They are talking about people's interest in books about the monarchy in general, and how it has increased after the abdication. People are demanding more information about both the abdication process and about the new monarchs. But the whole process was so fast paced and unexpected that the publishing houses are reediting old works with some updates about the latest events.  They also talked about a new book ("Yo abdico") in which a group of prestigious journalists -no PeŮafiel-like wind-up merchants here- try to analyze JC's reasons for his decision to step down.

Thanks for the summary!  I'm glad Spanish people are interested in the monarchy again.  If they look around other European royal families,  they would find they get a good one in Felipe and Letizia.

That afternoon he received in Zarzuela Anne Hidalgo, mayor of Paris. Coincidentally Hidalgo was born in San Fernando:
