After the ceremony, the Queen and her daughters returned to Madrid while Felipe VI stayed in Barcelona because this Tuesday he presided over the delivery of dispatches at the Talarn academy.

Felipe VI’s wife has suspended a hearing with the winners of the BBVA Foundation Transforming Realities scholarship, as well as a meeting with representatives of the entities that have collaborated in the “A toy, an illusion” campaign.

Queen Doña Letizia was vaccinated for Covid on July 16. The wife of Felipe VI delayed the puncture to do it at the same time as the Princess of Asturias, who had to receive the dose to travel to Wales. Before, in March 2020, the Queen had to maintain quarantine and isolation after having coincided with Irene Montero, who had Covid. Later, Doña Letizia served as ‘regent’ during Felipe VI’s quarantine in November 2020.
