King Felipe attended the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Basque Business Confederation at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao with a bandaged hand.
This injury attracted a lot of attention because it occurred the day after the swearing-in ceremony of Princess Leonor, where the King dedicated tender gestures of support and beautiful words to his daughter who will one day take her place as Queen of Spain.
Although the King appeared alone, this injury has raised concerns about his physical health.
What happened to King Felipe’s hand?
The Royal Household has stated that the bandage on King Felipe’s hand is a precautionary measure due to a minor wrist injury.
According to journalist Mariángel Alcázar, the father of Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofía suffers from tendinitis, an inflammation of the tendon, which is a very common joint injury.
To prevent the condition from worsening and causing further damage, the Spanish monarch has decided to take measures.
Despite the situation, the hand injury has not prevented King Felipe from continuing with his official schedule.
Next October 12, the King and Queen of Spain, together with the Princess of Asturias, will preside from the main rostrum and host a reception at the Royal Palace.
In addition, next week will begin the events related to the awards of the Princess of Asturias, scheduled for October 20.
King Felipe continues to fulfill his royal duties and obligations despite the concerns raised.
