King Felipe's 50th Birthday January 30, 2018
 
I thought this is a good opportunity to open the thread for Felipe's upcoming birthday on January 30. Commemoratives coins for 50th birthday of Spain's King Felipe VI Photos and Images | european pressphoto agency https://elpais.com/economia/2017/12/...78_012182.html

It is a good idea indeed. Thank you for doing so.

Do we know if there are any festivities that are planned? I suspect there will be few as the Spanish RF always seems to regard birthdays as private events, perhaps rightly so.

An Ard Ri 12-18-2017 06:12 AM

I very much doubt there will be anything the Spanish RF take low key to another level.

Considering SRF's lowkey style and political situation of Spain I don't think there will not be many celebrations, maybe just a private dinner(s) and some new portraits. But I hope I'm wrong :flowers:

Duke of Marmalade 12-18-2017 08:05 AM

I think we'll see some new portraits and maybe some insight about Felipe's work life, similar to after the first year on the throne.
I doubt there will be a party a la Willem Alexander but it would be nice to do something that includes at least the public.

Vanity Fair Espana celebrates the 50th of King Felipe

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bc4zE1Al...anityfairspain


"On the verge of turning 50 years old, Felipe VI seeks to endorse himself with a firm position in the face of the Catalan crisis. For some, the king is finally present. For others, the split with the monarchy is enlarged. David Jiménez follows in the footsteps of the monarch and speaks with his usual friends, his colleagues in the military academy, his circle of confidence in the Royal House, ambassadors and politicians to understand also the two figures that live in it: the king and the person behind the charge; the one that confesses in private that sometimes imagines a life far from the Crown."

Given the general frostiness within the SRF I doubt there will be any celebrations the atmosphere and sour faces at the late Infanta Alicia's Memorial Mass is still a raw memory.

If we're luck we'll get a photo of Felipe/Letizia and the girls.

After the way they handled Juan Carlos' birthday picture nothing would surprise me but I actually expect a new picture of Felipe, as well as a family picture. I think that's kind of the bare minimum. And they did release a nice picture of Leonor on her birthday.

I bet dinner and cinema with Leti- that' s it- Same procedure as every year:bang:

Obviously Felipe has been photographed exclusively a while ago, as we can see on the stamp and at casareal, where his military portaits have been renewed. For some reason casareal failed to update his personal portait (and the one of the Queen and the pair shot) since it still shows him/her/them as Princes of Asturias. And there is no official photo of the family at all, its overdue to update that section.

Incidentally, I was watching the news today on the international channel of the Spanish public TV (TVE) and, by coincidence, there was a live broadcast on of a speech by Pablo Iglesias, the leader of the Podemos party.

Once again, it struck me that he used the term "monarchist bloc" to refer not only to the center-right parties (PP and Ciudadanos), but also to the Socialist Party, which he accused of "betraying" the "progressive parties" to align itself with the "monarchists". The speech in itself was not about the republic or toppling the monarchy, but it is curious how Podemos now systematically equates everything they are supposedly against (capitalism, the establishment, the center-right parties, or whatever) to the "monarchist bloc".

The rest of the speech on the other hand was the usual for Iglesias: he attacked French president Macron ("a banker" in his words), chancellor Merkel, the European Union, the Argentinean president Macri, president elect Piñera of Chile, and the pro-Brexit Tory government in the UK, and defended the Bolivarian regime of Venezuela.

I am afraid the collar will be quite heavy for a little ten-year-old girl to wear.

Doña Leonor does not need to wear it: the collar can remain on a cushion and instead a miniature is pinned on the dress.

Very exciting to know the Princess of Asturias will get some regalia. Every senior royal lady should have her own regalia. Yes, even if she’s twelve.

Biri 01-19-2018 10:22 AM

Princess of Asturias is twelve.
