It doesn't appear that anyone has been kissing his ring - has he done away with this tradition or is his ring not ready yet? I'm a bit confused.

Letizia and Felipe did bow to the Pope, will a Reigning Monarch bow to the Pope?

I saw Felipe and Letizia kissing his ring. Remember not everyone is catholic.

It looked to me like they bowed down but did not kiss it.

you made me laugh! :)

i have seen this picture of maxima talking to the argentinian president. it looks like the two women are happy to see each other.

i am most impressed. i can hardly imagine maxima agreeing with any of cristina fernandez's policies on how to govern argentina. maybe just protocolar etiquette?

That's because she is the Queen consort , she could go but with King Juan Carlos as the head of the State and as we know the king couldn't go due to his recent surgery, if the King cannot attend it's Felipe's duty as the heir represent the country.

Which I already knew and was saying it was a pity she couldn't attend.
