His Royal Highness Prince Felipe of Asturias inaugurated the new high-speed rail line from Barcelona to Figueres-Vilafant on January 8, 2013.
According to the Spanish royal court during the trip Prince Felipe toured the “… new train cab and met with the driver …” Once the prince and his delegation, which included Spanish Prime Minister, Mr. Mariano Rajoy, the President Generalitat of Cataluña, Mr. Artut Mas, and the Minister of Development, Ms. Ana Pastor, arrived at Figueres-Vilafant station Prince Felipe unveiled a “…commemorative plaque and mingled with various VIPs in attendance.”
Afterwards, the prince and his delegation hopped on the train which headed toward their final stop Girona. Again, upon their arrival Prince Felipe was warmly greeted by various local officials, and after several handshakes he unveiled yet another commemorative plaque. After his inaugural speech the prince went home.
And, that’s it. 🙂
