King Felipe VI took the Spanish crown Thursday, 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 (22:00 GMT) as an act of parliament signed by his father came into force, formalising the end of 76-year-old Juan Carlos’ 39-year reign – reports AFP.
