Is it a saccharine charm-offensive to placate crowds? Does it mean that ratings are bad? It would be fair to say that PR of the Spanish royal family is clumsy.

I see nothing saccharine or charm offensive about these images and videos. In any event, that is the sort of thing elected leaders tend to go for - King Felipe is more serious and subtle than that as far as I can tell.

King Felipe seems to be a very "stately" King, I like how he works and his seriousness and it is good to see him going about his day to day business. It was also nice to see what goes on inside the palace, his office, the audiences etc.

The support rating last year, shortly before the abdication, was just a little over 40% so yes, it's a big improvement.

I think he does what people in office usually do, elected or not. You have to have the public on your side. Its about coming across as trustworthy and reliable, an asset for the country. Everything is in the pictures: happy family, nice kids, a good rapport to the future Queen, hardworking, the image of a good king. After JC Felipe starts from scratch in that respect, and those pictures certainly help. Its PR, nothing else, and the first anniversary is a perfect opportunity.

In all three monarchies which saw abdications, all three Kings saw excellent approval ratings in their first year. That has more to do with seeing a fresh, new face after decades of the same head of state. Everything seems new, energized, etc. A close look learns that only on details there are changes here and there, but simply the idea seeing someone else than a Juan Carlos after almost 40 years already is "new" and "refreshing". Mind you, people often already become "tired" from a President in his first, let alone second, term....

It is hard to say if it is Felipe himself, as this phenomenon (a raise in public approval) is visible in all three monarchies which saw an abdication, no matter the background or circumstances of the abdication or the personal character of the new monarchs.

It is my personal subjective impression. In truth, I find PR campaigns in the western enlightened regimes cringing. They lack artful subtlety. It is amusing to see plebeians in the aforementioned regimes being happy with such campaigns.

Those figures were posted a while ago in the thread on "Popularity of the Monarchy in Sweden". They may be higher now, but I don't know for sure.

Maybe Felipe should have ridden topless like Putin, I'm pretty sure the rates would be even higher

Thank you everyone for sharing the photos and videos.
I think this is a nice idea. The video of the collection of events felt a bit like I was watching a "behind the scenes" of Felipe's first year on the throne as the clips were done in a more informal way.

My favourite was of course the video of Leonor, Sofia and Letizia welcoming Felipe after his visit to Aachen. It was cute when Leonor was asking Felipe about the history of the town and asked if Charlemagne was King before Jesus and laughed when Felipe said he was born after Jesus. I also liked the clip of Felipe and Letizia on the train, which looked as if it were a public one. It's nice that the royals get public transport nowadays instead of the royal trains. I remember reading once that here in England, the Wessexes travelled on economy class to one of their holidays.

The PR in question was equally cringing and was/is mocked by many in the foreign press. The downgraded European bloodlines should be more skillful marketing themselves to the subjects.
