HM FELIPE VI NEW OFFICIAL PORTRAITS

Recommended Posts

Antonio - a good official portrait. I suppose beards are in fashion - and I see his badges of rank are the five stars in a circle.

I always thought that was the US insignia , but I expect it has been taken-up by other Countries.

I will pin this for you as he is the Head of State. Mervyn

The badges of the spanish armed forces rank "capitán general" OF-10 are as US General of the Army, Maréchal de France, or UK Field Marshal

First fully bearded king since Amadeo of Savoy (1870-73)(although Alfonso XII had some fairly drastic side whiskers a la Franz Joseph). I hope his reign is more successful than Amadeo's.

Nice pictures of a member of the new generation of European kings. Only a pity that the king doesn't wear the collar of the order of the Golden Fleece, but some kind of miniature version. After all the Golden Fleece is one of the most esteemed orders of Europe and king Felipe is the Grandmaster.

Very nice.

To complet the previous post here have a link with some more portraits of kings of Spain provide by the city council of Sevilla. In special a good serie of last Borbons, you can find from Felipe V to Alfonso XIII all the legitimate kings, except Amadeo.

Hello Mervyn

 

Sorry for tje delay in the answer, but I have no time to enter internet too much by now.

 

I'm glad you like the Link... 

 

By the way, I wanted to comment the good moment in our countries relactions. (UK & Spain). More than one million british people stay in our country, working, etc,,, and mixed-weddings are growing all the time. My misstres come from english ancestors, curiously she have a "dolicocéfalo" skull althought she has brown skin in summer.

 

Regards
