New Spanish king, queen to make debut visit to Vatican

(L-R) Princess Sofia, Crown Princess of Asturias Leonor, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and Head of armed forces Admiral Fernando Garcia Sanchez at a swearing in ceremony in Madrid on June 19, 2014Spain’s new King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia will visit Pope Francis at the Vatican on June 30 on their first foreign trip since taking the throne, the government said Friday. Setting out their first engagements, palace officials said the couple, who have two daughters — seven-year-old Sofia and eight-year-old Leonor — will soon visit other parts of Spain and destinations abroad. “The king and queen have a very busy international agenda, the Vatican first,” Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo told public television channel TVE. The regional government said the visit was planned before the king’s inauguration, but with political leaders in the region calling for a vote on independence from Spain in November, the timing is delicate.
