In a certain way I have respect for Wilhelmina's interpretation, she follows the centuries old adagium: "Le Roi est mort. Vive le Roi!". In her interpretation there is no difference between an abdication and a death: the result is that there is a new King and there can not be another King around. She reverted to the style she had before the kingship. Queen Juliana followed her example. Evenso Queen Beatrix. There is a clarity, a pureness in this, I can appreciate.

With so many Kings/Queens (five in Belgium, four in Spain) an inflation looms around the corner.

letizia visited the atelier of felipe varela, so hola speculates that it is likely she will wear FV at the inauguration (but we already expected that...)

Sorry, I´m not in Madrid at the moment, sadly (I live there during the University course, but now I´m spending the holidays at home )

But my friends tell me the centre of the city is quite restless, with the rehearsals, the workers getting ready the gardens and streets, the police (now Madrid is totally taken by police) and the visitors.

I´ve seen some photos on Twitter about the preparations on the streets and Plaza de Oriente (where the Royal Palace is located). It seems they´re painting the sutters of the Palace´s windows and on Gran Via (one of the main streets that the new Kings will tour after the ceremony) they have placed some white flowers columns that look gorgeous. They say there will be two similar floral columns at the gates of the Congress:

Will any of our members be at the 'real thing'? We'll probably have a much better view on TV but it would be exciting to witness first hand.

First pic from inside the Palace of the Congress, from one of the deputies Twitter:

http://img.europapress.net/fotoweb/f...195316_644.jpg

There are 28 chairs on the stage, of course the four red ones in the middle are for Felipe, Letizia, Leonor and Sofia (these two are slightly smaller )

And more about the preparatives and security:

Its hard to imagine that Felipe himself sat on one of those smaller chairs at his fathers proclamation almost 39 years ago!
