King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia pose with their daughters Princess Leonor and Princess Sofia in front of the Lions Gate at the Congress of Deputies during the King’s official coronation ceremony on Thursday (June 19) in Madrid, Spain.

“[Felipe has] the maturity, the preparation and the sense of responsibility necessary [to serve and] to lead to a new stage of hope using his experience and the drive of a new generation,” said Juan Carlos, who will still keep his title. He skipped several events in the coronation, “So as to give more prominence to the new King,” Spain’s Royal Palace confirmed.

Felipe and Letizia‘s eight-year-old daughter Leonor is now known as the Princess of Asturias (equal to Prince of Wales) and is next in line for the throne – the youngest in Europe.
