Spain's new King Felipe VI swore to uphold the constitution before parliament Thursday, launching a new reign to the applause of lawmakers before kissing the cheeks of his wife Queen Letizia.

"I swear to carry out my duties faithfully, to conserve and ensure the conservation of the Constitution and the law and to respect the rights of the citizens and regions," said the 46-year-old king, dressed in military uniform with the red sash of his office of captain general. AFP
