the notion of royalty

in the 21st century seems so antiquarian to me. but some countries hold on to the idea in some form. of course the Brits have turnd it into a major industry.

in Spain the old king recently abdicated. & yesterday his son Felipe became the new king. this dashing Olympian certainly looks the role. here is a picture I took of him on the plaza nearly 5 years ago: 

& with him was his lovely wife Letizia who is now the world's newest & probably most glamorous queen.
