Earlier this month, it was reported that Spain’s King Juan Carlos, decided to abdicate the throne in favor of his son, in order to make way for a “new generation.”
Today, his son ascended the throne. Felipe VI has been formally proclaimed the new king of Spain, CNN reports.
During a low-key ceremony, he swore an oath before the packed parliamentary chamber, pledging to unify his country and to work with its political leaders, to serve the interests of Spain.
