Madrid / Insignia of the Golden Fleece was given by King Felipe VI to Princess Leonor, heiress of the Crown, in a ceremony that he wanted to coincide with his 50th birthday to highlight the personal and institutional commitment for both with Spain: “You will be guided permanently by the Constitution, fulfilling and observing it” and “you will serve Spain with humility”.
The King explained to his daughter that this commitment “has its roots in the History of Spain, which updates and gives full democratic validity to the 1978 Constitution, approved by the Spanish people” and he has highlighted the Order of the Golden Fleece “has been integrated into the Crown of Spain for more than half a millennium” and “with the Hispanic Monarchy it managed to achieve its enormous prestige and worldwide projection”.
“You will serve Spain with humility” – the King said – “and aware of your institutional position, and you will make yours all the worries and joys, all the wishes and feelings of the Spaniards,” the King said after pointing out to his daughter that their actions “should be guided by the greater sense of dignity”, “exemplariness” and “capacity for sacrifice”.
Felipe VI guaranteed the Princess Leonor, who in the exercise of their responsibilities will have “the support of many people who want the best for Spain, for the Crown and for you”, including his mother, his sister, his grandparents and himself.
Before a table where the Collar was displayed, the credential of admission to the Order and the book of its ordinances, Felipe VI caught the bow with the miniature of the Fleece, symbol of the Golden Fleece, in the dress of the first-born, and remembered that The Fleece Collar is given to the heirs of the Crown to go “understanding the responsibilities” they will have to assume.
