Royal House The key phrases of the King's speech

In his traditional Christmas Eve message, King Felipe VI called this Sunday to "preserve the integrity of the Constitution." He has stressed that outside of the Magna Carta "there is no democracy" and that "division is the cause of historical errors." "We cannot allow the germ of discord to settle between us," he said, underlining the "moral duty" to preserve the "unity of our country" and the "solidarity" between autonomous communities.

Call

«Preventing the germ of discord from ever establishing itself among us is a moral duty that we all have. Because we can't afford it.

Put in value

«Outside respect for the Constitution there is no democracy or coexistence possible; there are no freedoms but imposition; "There is no law, but arbitrariness."

Magna Carta and Spain

«Outside the Constitution there is no Spain in peace and freedom. And together with the Constitution, Spain.

Progress

«The ultimate reason for our successes and progress has been the unity of our country. "It will be the key to successfully facing the complex future challenges that Spain faces today."

Institutional crisis

"Each institution, starting with the King, must be placed in the place that constitutionally corresponds to it."

I respect

«We must also respect other institutions in the exercise of their own powers and mutually contribute to their strengthening and prestige. "We must always ensure the good name, dignity and respect of our country."

Coexistence

"One of our great assets in democracy is, precisely, that coexistence based on shared feelings and the common search for the well-being and prosperity of all."

Homework

"We should become more aware of the great country we have, so we can feel it more and take care of it together."

Optimism

«Spain will continue forward. The Crown will always be on that path; "Not only because it is my duty as King, but also because it is my conviction."
