So what is next on the agenda for the new King and Queen? Will they be visiting all the areas of Spain?

Their first engagement as King and Queen of Spain. It's strange because I'm used to King Felipe already, but am still trying to get used to Queen Letizia. Don't get me wrong, I like Letizia - in fact she's my favourite Spanish Royal after the former Queen Sofia. Perhaps it's because there have been King Felipes/Philips in the past, but no Queen Letizias.

Ha ha yes I too have to keep checking that I'm using Her Majesty,Queen Letizia instead of HRH Princess Letizia,might take awhile!

I think the only other historical Letizia was Napoleons mother,Maria Letizia Buonaparte née Ramolino who was better known as Her Imperial Highness,Madame Mère de l'Empereur.

No its in Madrid and I believe it was the childhood home of Queen Fabiola of Belgium.It was the ancestral home of the Marquess of Casa Riera it was taken over by the State in 1986?.

Gay organizations thank the King and Queen first invitation of the Royal House. They will attend a reception for representatives of institutions of social solidarity on Tuesday.

No, An Ard Ri... this is the first time an organization that defends the rights of gay people was invited to the palace, and the royal family has never had an official event with the gay community.

Thank you An Ard Ri and Charlotte Asher. Can we assume this is where they will have audiences rather than Zarzuela?

No I don't think so as the Zurbano Palace is not a royal residence I assume it was just used today for the event in Madrid.

This innovation is an encouraging indication of the inclusive nature of King Felipe's vision for his reign. This is GOOD !

No Emmily, Zurbano Palace belongs to the government, and the Ministry of Interior that organized the meeting decided to celebrate it there.

Lula, who invites the organizations? Does the King need to approve? Like now, the gay organization has never been invited, so has Felipe invited them or agreed for them to be invited?

Dazzling, in Zarzuela, the King has the last word, decisions and changes that are being introduced, especially in these early times, reflect the new King and his team.
