I believe that on the one hand it is a safety question, it is not advisable that King and the Inheritor do united trips, because if it happens a problem, there can be a serious problem.

But isn't there then also a question of safety within Spain when the King and Felipe perform duties together? Presumably there would be more security if they travelled abroad, whether it be to visit a prime minister or president or another royal family as those individuals would have their own security team in addition to the King and Felipe's own security detail.

On the other hand, the Prince Felipe has an international very important agenda without need to travel with the Kings. Already he has assigned obligations that allow him to meet Chiefs of State and of Government. In Bulgaria, he met the President of the Republic and the Prime minister when opened the Cervantes. And next week will meet those of Portugal and Chile in the changes of Government.

No one doubts that separately the King and Felipe have important agendas, just as nobody thinks that when Haakon and Mette-Marit travelled with Harald and Sonja or Victoria with Carl Gustav and Silvia that they don't have their own patronages or important agendas to represent.

I'm personally just curious to know why they never travel together, if it is a policy by the royal house and why that might be the case.
