MADRID.- Los Reyes presidirán la delegación española que el próximo viernes asistirá en el Vaticano al funeral por el Papa Juan Pablo II, según confirmaron fuentes de la Casa del Rey y del Ejecutivo.

El presidente del Gobierno, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, formará parte también de la delegación española, junto al ministro de Asuntos Exteriores, Miguel Ángel Moratinos.

El presidente del Partido Popular, Mariano Rajoy, ha aceptado la invitación que le ha cursado Zapatero para formar parte de la delegación. Rajoy, que ha firmado en el libro de condolencias habilitado por la Nunciatura por la muerte de Juan Pablo II, ha manifestado que representa a un partido al que votan muchos católicos y si una delegación española viaja a Roma para acudir a las exequias se siente obligado a ir.

Fuentes del Ejecutivo indicaron que el domingo, el presidente del Gobierno telefoneó al Rey para proponerle presidir la delegación española, invitación que Don Juan Carlos "aceptó de inmediato", destacaron también fuentes de la Casa del Rey.

A Zapatero podría acompañarle también el ministro de Justicia, Juan Fernando López Aguilar, de quien dependen los asuntos religiosos.

Fuentes de La Zarzuela indicaron que los Reyes volverán "con toda probabilidad" al Vaticano para asistir a la proclamación del sucesor de Juan Pablo II, tras el cónclave que elegirá al nuevo Papa, que se reunirá tras las exequias fúnebres del Pontífice fallecido

The King of Spain will visit today the European Commission, the European Parliament, and will meet Javier Solana (E.U. General Secretary of Security, Cabinet and Foreign policy).

The airplane in which Don Juan Carlos traveled from Madrid, accompanied by the minister of Foreign Affairs, Miguel Ángel Moratinos, and by the Secretary of State for European Subjects, Alberto Navarrese, landed yesterday, Tuesday, at the airport of Brussels, at 6,15 GMT.

According sources of the Royal House, the Queen was initially supposed to accompany the King, but in the end, Doña Sofía did not travel to Brussels, for all the changes taking place this week, as the death of Pope John Paul II has undergone the whole agenda of the royal family.

Today, the day of the King will begin with a visit of courtesy to the European Parliament, being recieved by its president, the Spanish Josep Borrell. After meeting Borrell in his office, the King will meet the chamber and the presidents of the seven parliamentary groups.

This is the third visit of Don Juan Carlos to the European Parliament, although the two previous ones, in May of 1986 and October of 1998, had an official character and took place in Strasbourg (France). For both occasions, the King spoke before the plenary session of the Eurochamber, reunited in solemn session.

At noon, the King will officially go to the European Commission, in whose seat he will be received by its president, the Portuguese José Manuel Durão Barroso, who will invite him to visit the Assemby of Commissioners, where Don Juan Carlos will pronounce a speech.

After lunch, the King will meet Javier Solana. The visit of the King will be concluded with the permanent representation of Spain in the European Union, whose ambassador is Carlos Bastarreche, where he will meet the civil employees and other Spaniards, who work in the communitarian institutions.

The King and Queen of Spain along with the head of the Spanish Government, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, and the president of the PP, Mariano Rajoy, visited today the corps of Pope Jonh Paul II.
On the first raw, reserved to the authorities, there seated the King, in a black tie, and the Queen, with a veil of black lace, and both knelt down and praid for a few moments.

On the same seat, there were three of the six Spanish cardinals, who will participate in the election of the next Pope: Antonio Maria Rouco, Julian Herranz and Eduardo Martinez Somalo. After them there were Rodriguez Zapatero, Mariano Rajoy, the minister of Foreign Affairs, Miguel Ángel Moratinos, and the ambassador of Spain in the Vatican, Jorge Dezcallar.

After a few moments of pray, the King and Queen, first, and later Zapatero, Rajoy and Moratinos stopped before the crops of Jonh Paul II, and left the Basilica.

From antena3. Here is a link to a video. http://antena3.com/a3n2004/servlet/N...=si&id=9153629



La delegación española, encabezada por los Reyes, llega a la Basílica de San Pedro2005/04/07. Jorge Cabezas Moreno , Madrid
e-mail:nacional@antena3tv.esEl funeral del Papa Juan Pablo II se ha convertido en un acontecimiento histórico y sin precedentes. Más de 200 jefes de Estado y de Gobierno asistirán a las exequias del Santo Padre. La delegación española, presidida por los reyes don Juan Carlos y Doña Sofía, entraba a las ocho de la tarde en la Basílica. Les acompañaban el presidente del Gobierno, Rodríguez Zapatero, el Ministro de Exteriores y el líder de la oposición, Mariano Rajoy.

Los Reyes han rezado durante unos instantes ante los restos mortales del Papa Y han saludado al secretario del pontífice monseñor Dsiwisz y a varios cardenales, entre ellos el camarlengo, Martínez Somalo. Se han bajado del avión y directamente se han ido a la Basílica de San Pedro. Los Reyes, a la cabeza de la delegación española, entraban en el templo, poco antes de las ocho de la tarde. Los dos de luto riguroso, la Reina con mantilla negra en la cabeza.

Minutos después se despedían de Juan Pablo II, al mismo que tiempo que cientos de peregrinos, rezando una oración. En otro banco, muy cerca de los Reyes, el presidente del Gobierno, el líder de la oposición y el Ministro de Asuntos Exteriores. Don Juan Carlos y Doña Sofia han podido hablar con el camarlengo y con el secretario personal del Papa y darles el pésame. Conversaban también con los cardenales españoles que participarán en el cónclave.

Los Reyes antes de irse han permanecido unos minutos en pie, en silencio, delante del cuerpo del Papa. La Santa Sede ha concedido al gobierno español cuarenta plazas de invitados para el funeral del Papa. Entre esos invitados veremos, por ejemplo, al ex-presidente Calvo Sotelo, a varios presidentes autonómicos y a parlamentarios de distintos grupos políticos. Después se ha celebrado una cena en honor a los Reyes en la Embajada de España en Roma.

From Elmundo:

http://www.elmundo.es/elmundo/2005/0...112950107.html

The King and Queen of Spain occupied a prominent place at the row destined to the Chiefs of State, at the funeral of the Pope John Paul II, next to the representatives of other Royal Houses.

The authorities, all dressed in rigorous mourning, were seated on the left of the Basilica, whereas the cardinals, in red and white, took the right seat.

Protocol says that the guests seat by categories: first Chiefs of State, later prime ministers, ambassadors... The maximum of members of each delegation is five people. At the acts celebrated in the Vatican, the men have to dress suit, or uniforms, in case of a military. At the funerals, they do not have to take bands or decorations. The women must dress rigorous mourning.

The Spanish delegation took more 40 people, who followed the funeral far from the place reserved to the official delegations. Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía were seated next to the Kings from Denmark, on their left, and by those from Jordan, on their right hand. Immediately behind them, there were the president of the United States, George W. Bush, and the president of France, Jacques Chirac, and their respective wives.
