Yes, it is a cane, probably it is the cane of the rector of the University who yields it to the King during the act, how symbol that the one who gives the orders, the one who presides at the act is the King.
The same thing happens when he visits for example a town hall of some city, the cane of control is delivered him, because the King is the honorary mayor of the cities and villages of Spain.
It is a symbol of power.

Wow, the King and Queen are having a hectic schedule! They have been traveling abroad very often since the beginning of the year.

I guess they can't wait for the summer to come and so they'll be free to spend their time at leisure in Majorca.
