King Felipe VI is king of Spain
(06-19 14:13)

King Felipe VI took the Spanish crown, setting the stage for celebrations in the flag-festooned capital a day after his father quit the throne with tears in his eyes.
Felipe, 46, legally became king at the stroke of midnight (2200 GMT) as an act of parliament signed by his father came into force, formalizing the end of 76-year-old Juan Carlos' 39-year reign.--AFP
