During the Belgian Accession it was also the National Day.
Today is also a national holiday in Spain though (the Catholic feast of Corpus Christi).

I agree. In the other proclamations, there was a small Space. I have been in the Royal Palace and the Plaza is enormous. Beautiful Royal Family!

It is only holiday in Madrid, nor in Spain.

I think the distance from de Congress to the Palace is almost 2,5 kilometers

But at parlament she was mentioned and received applause and it is her husbands day after all.

Large crowds along the route IMO, 10 rows or more in most areas (and it is a long route!). Nice to see so much enthousiasm and so many Spanish flags. Unlike the correspondant of 'The Times' I didn't see any republican flags on TVE. Madrid is a beautiful city btw.
Loved seeing the King standing in the car. And the reception he received was very touching. What hit me most was when they were waiting to get in the cars and it seems the King and Queens roles took a backseat for a moment and they were just Dad and Mom when the girls came out. Especially Letizia, walking them to their care and making sure they were okay. Very touching.

It is very significant that King Felipe VI chose to stand up considering that, until yesterday, the expectation was that he wouldn't even ride in an open car for security reasons. Like Pope Francis , who ditched his "papa-mobile", I see it as a personal statement from the new king.

Forgive me if I've missed it, but have the announced what JC and Sofia are to go by now? Will they still be King & Queen like Albert & Paola?

That's correct, they will continue to retain their titles of King and Queen. I suspect, like the UK, the King and the Queen will be the reinging monarchs, whilst the older coupel will be referred to as King JC and Queen S.

Princess (now Queen) Letizia has been criticized though in the past for being too protective of her daughters and shielding them too much from public events.

I know that is a controversial topic, but I personally prefer the way princess Victoria and prince Daniel for example are raising princess Estelle. By the time she is the same age as Leonor is now, she will be so used to public ceremonies that it will have become second nature to her. Even princess Catharina-Amalia or princess Elisabeth of Belgium seem more at ease with public attention than infanta (now princess) Leonor.

Is there an on-line site where proclamation souvenirs can be purchased overseas?

Great videos on the casareal youtube channel. Leonor and Sofia were very well behaved but it looks like it was a hot day in Spain! The sun was clearly in their eyes on the balcony.

According to TVE the family of Queen Letizia is there too. I didn't see them yet on television. I supposed that they are seated in the galleries, like the family of Q. Mathilde was in the Belgian parlament.
I can certainly see your point, but, Cristina has not been found guilty of any crime in court. She has only been questioned. What if she is found not guilty [not that I truly believe she is innocent] but it certainly is a very important day in the life of her family and country.

How wonderful for Spain long live king Felipe! What a fantastic couple so obviously crazy for each other and highly intelligent. Letitia plays it just right is a fantastic wife and mother yet I'm sure kf confident in all matters .balcony scene says it all. How brilliant to stand up in the car,courage! And the fabulous horses,plumes,cannons,crowds. Can't wait to see all the video and read a translation of the speech. The girls were perfection,no words to describe!
