King Felipe and Queen Letizia concluded their state trip to Copenhagen this Wednesday with the reception of a representation of the Spanish community in the country. More than ten thousand Spaniards currently live in Denmark, most of them young people who left after the 2008 crisis in search of a better professional future. In one of the rooms of the Molke Palace, Don Felipe assured during the toast that throughout the trip they have seen “the good welcome that Denmark has given” to expatriates. “You are a dynamic and well-integrated community,” the King assured those gathered there who participate in activities within the Association of Spaniards in Denmark o to Spandinavia.
The guests were happy to be able to spend some time with the Kings, who separated during the cocktail to be able to talk to all of them, who told them their life story. Because the King recalled that this reception for the community that they do on all trips is “an occasion to recognize and particularly thank your efforts.”
The Kings left the reception after two in the afternoon directly to the airport, where they left for Madrid to culminate a week focused on the international agenda.
But before the meeting with the Spanish community, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia said goodbye to Margaret of Denmark in Fredensborg, the queen’s country residence where the Spanish royal couple stayed. The Monarch and his wife fulfilled the tradition of signing on glass with a diamond-tipped pen. Queen Margaret has asked all Fredensborg guests to perform this ritual for decades. Later, these crystals are placed in the palace windows, thus perpetuating the presence of the monarch’s guests.
The Kings shared numerous events with Margarita since last Monday, when they arrived in Denmark. In addition to the officials, they have lived together in the Palace and there they also said goodbye to the queen’s dogs, who entered the room while Don Felipe and Doña Letizia signed on the glass.
