National Heritage exposes the “tireless” work and “harmony” with society of Felipe VI in his 10 years of reign

National Heritage celebrates the tenth anniversary of the reign of Felipe VI in an exhibition titled, ‘Felipe VI 2014-2024. A decade in the history of the Crown of Spain’, which shows the “tireless” work and “harmony” of the monarchs with society, through 23 photographs provided, mostly by the Royal Family, or a summary video that includes some of the “milestones” of the current monarchy. This was stated by the person responsible for this initiative, José María Sanz Magallón, secretary of the Cultural Foundation of the Spanish Nobility, in the presentation ceremony that took place this Monday at the Royal Palace, together with the president of National Heritage, Ana de Cave. “We consider it important to highlight the tireless work that the King and Queen have done during the more than 4,000 public events they have held, in which it is clear that they are very much in tune with Spanish society,” said Sanz Magallón. . The exhibition, which can be visited at the Royal Palace until October 20, collects through 23 photographs some “sad and happy” moments of the tenth anniversary of the reign of Felipe VI, and also some symbols of the monarchy, such as the Crown and the Royal Scepter or the Law by which the abdication of King Juan Carlos I became effective. The academics of History and Fine Arts Enrique Moradiellos and Publio López Modéjar, curators of the exhibition, have selected images that range from the proclamation of Felipe VI in the Congress of Deputies, passing through a photograph of the commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Constitution, or an image of the King with Rafa Nadal at Roland Garros, after the Spanish athlete’s 14th triumph in the French tournament or a visit of Queen Letizia to the Patria Institute during her cooperation trip to Honduras in 2020. “The most important images are not necessarily shown, although an attempt has been made to give an image of the different profiles and facets that the kings have had during these ten years , both in the world of culture and in the institutional world,” explained Sanz Magallón. In addition, during the tour you will be able to see an image of Felipe VI during the tribute to the victims of terrorism on the 25th anniversary of the kidnapping and murder of Miguel Ángel Blanco or a photograph of the tribute act to the victims of the coronavirus in the Plaza de la Armory of the Royal Palace. For her part, Ana de la Cueva stated that the exhibition helps to reflect on “how the Crown of Spain is inextricably linked to Spanish democracy.” “The Crown is deeply committed to society, both inside and outside the country,” she indicated. The exhibition also consists of a summary video that can be seen in the Hall of Halberdiers of the Royal Palace, which shows some scenes from those more than 4,000 public events that Their Majesties have carried out. It is planned that the exhibition will be installed in other cities such as Granada, Seville, Zaragoza, Málaga or Valencia during the year 2024 and the first half of 2025. VIDEOMAPPING ON THE FACADE OF THE ROYAL PALACE In turn, National Heritage offers on the 19th, 20th and June 21, a videomapping show on the façade of the Royal Palace that overlooks the Plaza de Oriente. The screenings are scheduled at 10:45 p.m., 11 p.m., 11:15 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. Access is free and open. In addition, it is planned to open a website with information on the different activities organized for this commemoration and the publication of a publication in newspaper format, with the collaboration of Ediciones El Viso. To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the proclamation of Philip VI, National Heritage has decided to open all the royal palaces, monasteries and museums it manages (including the Royal Collections Gallery) free of charge on June 19. In the case of the Royal Palace of Madrid, the free opening will be on June 20 starting at 12:30. Tickets will be collected directly at the box office.
