Queen Letizia of Spain in Felipe Varela – King Felipe VI Official Coronation Ceremony
Felipe VI is the new king of Spain. Juan Carlos’s son legally took over as the country’s new monarch at midnight when the abdication law signed on Wednesday came into force. Despite the importance and formality of the act, today’s King Felipe VI Official Coronation Ceremony remained low-key and more of a touching family affair.
The new royals arrived at Congress three minutes before 10.30am, where they stood on a red dais to listen to a live rendition of the Spanish national anthem before moving inside the building. Felipe VI stood at attention with Queen Letizia of Spain, wearing a dusty white Felipe Varela dress and coat plus Magrit shoes, standing to his left, and their two young daughters, Leonor, new Princess of Asturias, and Sofia, to his right.
