Where do you get all your info from? Obviously, nowhere relevant. The new King will sink or swim on his actions to help the people and attract business and jobs for his people. Since, the majority of the population of Spain are Catholic, your implications are false. Great numbers crowded the streets to cheer for the nice young man and his lovely family. As has been stated before, the Catholic Church has no bearing on this monarchy. There is a separation of the church and state, as it should be. I, believe, he will do fine. He seems to have his act together and will proceed.

It's time to move regarding the discussion Felipe and Catholicism. I think we know where everyone stands.

I have read from two different sources this week that the latest polls give a slight pro-monarchical majority among Spanish public opinion -something like 52% or so (I think for the one published in Catalan 'Vanguardia' newspaper..)

Can someone confirm that..? If this is so, it's rather disheartening, bearing in mind that it's only in the immediate aftermath of the wonderful royal ceremony that one would have believed fostered monarchical allegiance in everyday people..

Today's poll by Metroscopia for Spanish newspaper El Pais about the current political situation, first one that values the King after the abdication (tomorrow a more official one (by the CIS) will be known).

Respondents were asked to evaluate positively or negatively several political leaders, including King Felipe and Queen Letizia:

The best score, well above the political leaders, is got by the Kings of Spain. A little over a hundred days of assuming the crown, Felipe VI has a balance of +52 points, and Queen Letizia of +44, which is a radical change in trend against the deterioration of the image recorded at Casa Real previous surveys.

Among politicians, only Pablo Iglesias, leader of the very leftish political party Podemos, gets a positive score, and it is a +1 (far under the +52 and +44 got by the King and Queen).

Such a positive change from last year polls
Palaces are not the ones that dignify kings; kings are the ones who honor them with their presence.
