The ceremony was short but it was nice to see most of the family present.A bittersweet moment for the old King and he looked to be very frail at times.I noticed Letizia was keeping an eye on the girls but they were well behaved and aunty Pilar was behind them just incase!


Congratulations to the new King,H.M.Felipe VI of Spain!

I agree, it was a dignified, solemn ceremony for a King that has worked and represented Spain and the Spanish people. At first I wondered why he did not kiss Letizia, but he is very fragile, I understood that when I saw him falling to the chair when Leonor and Sofía came to hug him and kiss him. It was time for Juan Carlos to abdicate, he has done his level best.

I hope and pray King Felipe V1 and Queen Letizia have a great and glorious reign, and that Spain will prosper and flourish anew !
You always articulate my own thoughts so well. As a lover and student of European history I have mixed feelings about today's proceedings. I feel sad to see J-C go out like this but I understand why he is doing it.

I can't wish for anything except the Lord's blessings on the new King and Queen and their beautiful children, and on the Spanish people.

He was a good king and did a great deal for his nation. He should be applauded.

Pathetic is what Christina and her Husband did to the People of Spain, as well as the Monarchy of Spain. The Damage of their actions is still being felt and will be for quite sometime. Not being invited to take part in the events regarding the Abdication and Succession is called having to deal w/the consequences of your actions.

They got caught using the power and privilege of Christina being a HRH Infanta of Spain gave them and took advantage of the very people she was supposed to help and protect as an Infanta of Spain, the Spanish People. I'm not crying any tears she's not there, as she's reaping what she sowed and I have a feeling most of the Spanish people feel the same way.

And I also saw sister of Queen Sofia - Princess Irene of Greece and Denmark. She sat behind HRH Infanta Margarita of Spain, The Duchess of Soria and Hernan. Princess Irene has lived in Spain in an apartment at the La Zarzuela Palace in Madrid so I am sure that she was there.

He certainly should. However, I predict that it won't be until long after his death that people of Spain realize it.
