It looks like nobody curtsies anymore to the King and Queen of Spain, which is odd as curtsying was fairly common during the reign of King Juan Carlos.

Another odd thing is that the shield and crest of the national coat of arms and of the King's personal arms have exactly the same heraldic descriptions in the legal instruments that established them, but, for some reason, the government of Spain adopted an official model design and a color palette for the national coat of arms that are different from the King's arms and go against the laws of heraldry.

EDIT: In the video, you can see the different designs of the two coat of arms: the King's personal arms appear on the King's standard (with the shield encircled by the collar of the Golden Fleece) whereas the national coat of arms is the one supported in the heraldic achievment by two crowned columns.

The shield of Spain and the personal arms of the king are different. His personal arms are used in the royal box and on the king's banners, in the rest of the box and in the military units that of Spain.

Shield of Spain

Personal arms of King Felipe

Personal arms of King Juan Carlos

The Throne room looks so much nicer with the beautiful marble floor visible than when it is covered under red carpet
