King Felipe received military honours and reviewed the troops.

The President of Congress opened the session with a speech, followed by King Felipe. He said, “The Spanish people have placed the most precious political asset in their honours: trust. They have entrusted them with the task of ensuring that the political pluralism represented here promotes the improvement of the living conditions of the people and groups in which it is integrated. The performance of the powers attributed to the Chambers constitutes a high honour for all your honours. An honour that also entails the obligation to perform the entrusted constitutional functions, always seeking the common good of all Spaniards. This is, unequivocally, the return due to the trust granted by the citizens. ”
