Spanish State Visits of the Past

I think that we could have a discussion about Spain State Visits, and what visits do we want to see in the future?


When do you think Leonor and Sofia begin to participate in State banquets to the heads of State who visit Spain? When they do 18 years?

Seeing the apparently massive support for the monarchy in the Spain of 1978 and in particular the affection for King Juan Carlos then compared to how lukewarm that same support seems now is sobering.

Thanks for the wonderful videos.

Does anybody know where I can find video clips of the state visit of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia to the UK in 1986, especially of the state dinner at Windsor Castle ?

On the contrary, the monarchy is much more established right now, and King Felipe is (and has always been, even when Prince of Asturias) very popular. If the monarchical system fails in Spain it will be despite King Felipe's popularity, even republican leaders have said that Felipe would be an ideal candidate for President and that he would win. (Again, I'm just saying that there are republicans everywhere and despite the apocalyptic views of the Spanish monarchy here there's no major support, either among politicians or the population, to change the system)

In 1978 few people thought the monarchy would survive and Juan Carlos was known in certain political circles as Juan Carlos the Brief. If we're judging support from anecdotal videos and pictures of people greeting the royals, there are certainly many, many photos and videos of the current royal couple greeting adoring crowds.

Presumably at 18 they'll be either at college or at a military academy. I imagine their attendance would depend on exams, homework, where they're studying...Perhaps they'd start attending certain state dinners, for example from another monarchy.
