by hellomagazine.com

A new chapter in Spanish history began when Felipe VI was proclaimed the new king of Spain on Thursday morning in a low-key ceremony at the Palace of Zarazuela, on the outskirts of Madrid.

The new monarch officially ascended to the throne with his wife, now Queen Letizia of Spain, and two daughters Princess Sofia and Princess Leonor, by his side.

We take a look at the best moments of the historic day in pictures – from the swearing-in ceremony, the embrace of two kings, and the new reigning couple's royal kiss on the palace's balcony before thousands of well-wishers and fans.
