The Spanish government is mismanaging the crisis, and the attitude of some media is more to protect the government than to report transparently. Some private media received financial aid at the start of the crisis, and will probably need more public aid ... so they must protect their money.

Spain is in a state of alarm, the government has special powers, and the King's room for maneuver is more limited. And a government with a lot of ego and that increasingly has a worse image, does not want the Head of State to overshadow them.
In Portugal the situation is not very different. Some private media have also received (or will receive) financial aid from the state and so have been lenient with the government.
It is not enough that we are experiencing a pandemic we are still witnessing a crisis of press freedom... but these are other matters...

This was unexpected and a great visit to make. I hope we will see more of this now that we are slowly opening up.



I still find so unreal pictures like this illustrating the "new normal", but I guess we'll get used to it:

The minutes silence seems to have taken part in a different area of the Zarzuela complex,normally we only see the front facade.

It was nice to see the family and officials out for the minutes silence. Leonor seems to have shot up in quarantine and seems to be a similar height to her sister now. Someone in another thread mentioned that Leonor seemed unwell, and I do agree that she seemed rather tired and aloof. I hope she's alright given everything that's going on, but perhaps it was just an early start (we are all used to later mornings now in isolation!) as I'm inclined to think that if Leonor was showing symptoms of COVID-19, Felipe and Letizia would have kept her back at the palace.

I don't think they've ever shown you this Zarzuela garden.
It is the garden that is at the main entrance of the palace.
