KING Felipe VI of Spain has accepted an invitation to preside over the Committee of Honour at the 24th Congress of the Andalucian Pain and Continued Assistance Association in Marbella next week (October 22 to 24).
His Majesty was invited by association president Francisco Flores and although official confirmation is still pending, if the visit goes ahead, it will be the first time the king has paid the city a visit since his coronation.
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia have however been to the Costa del Sol since his father, King Juan Carlos I, abdicated 16 months ago, as just over a year ago the royal couple travelled to Malaga City to visit the Picasso Museum and attend the inaugural dinner for the 19th Spain-United States Forum held at the Automobile Museum.
A note from the Royal Household in response to the invitation said: “His Majesty the King would like to accept the kind invitation to preside over the Committee of Honour at the Marbella Congress.”
The doctor in charge of organising the event Sanchez de Aguila also confirmed the news on the event’s official Twitter page.
