Spanish Royal Family News suggests that King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain continues to leave Queen Elizabeth’s royal family in the dust and quite honestly, the rest of the European royals, too. Not only were King Felipe and Queen Letizia one of the first royal couples to come out of coronavirus quarantine first in an effort to show solidarity with the citizens of Spain, but they have also been leading the way by becoming royal examples and royal models during their official engagements and public appearances. Here’s what you need to know.
Felipe and Letizia have been receiving plenty of praise – both in Spain and around the world – for showing their support to local citizens but also doing what they can to promote and support Spain’s economy as well. The Royal couple visited the Canary Islands this week, which is an area that has been hard-hit by the pandemic because of the loss of tourism. In 2019, the Canary Islands received more than 15 million visitors and tourism generates about 40 percent of the region’s jobs.
Spanish Royal Family News: King Felipe and Queen Letizia Continue To Leave Queen Elizabeth’s Royal Family In The Dust
The visit was something the royal couple hoped would “give an image that there is a new stage that we are facing this recovery, that people have to cheer up, that visitors have to come.” Now that Spain is no longer in a state of emergency, Felipe and Letizia are arranging many engagements to support the recovery of social and economic activities following the height of the pandemic.
Meanwhile, the British royal family have begun their royal engagements and public appearances too, but not to the extent of the Spanish royals. That’s because royals like Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton are yet to wear masks in public and apart from thanking NHS and front line workers for their service, haven’t really done much to help tourism or the economy in the same way that their Spanish counterparts have.
