“Long live the King!” heard Don Felipe, at 10:36 this Tuesday, when he got out of the vehicle that left him in front of the esplanade where a monolith stands, with a plaque, attesting that the new Cidade was inaugurated there. gives Xustiza of Vigo. Coincidentally, his presence came just one day after his father left, after a weekend in Sanxenxo that generated tremendous media interest. The Monarch, who arrived accompanied by the Minister of Justice, Pilar Llop, responded to the cheers and applause of the more than 200 people gathered on the opposite sidewalk with a cordial but restrained greeting, before being received by the president of the Xunta , Alfonso Rueda; and that of the Supreme and the Judicial Power, Carlos Lesmes; and to greet the authorities, led by Alberto Núñez Feijóo, as head of the opposition, with whom he chatted animatedly.

Immediately afterwards, posed before the media to immortalize the moment, before visiting the facilities —investment of 40 million euros, more than 44,000 square meters where 38 judicial units are integrated; it will house more than 500 workers—, accompanied by the building’s architect, Alfonso Penela; and participate in an explanatory meeting on the situation of Justice in Galicia —with interventions by Rueda, Lesmes and the dean judge of the Courts of Vigo, Germán Serrano—. Finally, audience with the presidents of the Superior Courts of Justice.

After the act, the King wanted to reciprocate, already in a broader way, the affection shown by the assembled public, who carried a Spanish flag that gave a patriotic note, such as the pair of banners hanging from the buildings on Padre Feijóo street located in front of the brand new courthouse. Don Felipe, despite the fact that his schedule was tight, and he had to leave the city, heading for the Fair Institute (IFEVI), he greeted one by one, shaking hands. What he did not do was answer the questions from the press about the meeting the day before, in Zarzuela, with Don Juan Carlos.

At 12:45 p.m., at the scheduled time, the King entered the fairgrounds, in the second inaugural milestone of his morning in the Olívica city: Navalia, a fair for the naval sector that reopened its doors after a four-year hiatus —he was unable to celebrate the edition scheduled for 2020 due to the Covid pandemic—. After the mandatory family photo outside, and the discovery of another commemorative plaque, Don Felipe made a tour of the various stands, at all times supported by Feijóo and Rueda. If in the first act the representation of the Xunta was completed by the second vice president, Diego Calvo, in Navalia the first vice president, Francisco Conde, and the Minister of the Sea, Rosa Quintana, joined him, among other authorities who accompanied him all morning, such as Miguel Santalices, president of the Parliament; José Miñones, delegate of the Government; and the mayor, Abel Caballero.

The King took the necessary time to learn about the novelties presented at the international fair by the main companies in the sector. He left just before 3:00 p.m. Without scheduled speeches, there were also no statements, and whoever made them, like Lesmes, did not skip the script either.
