During the ceremony, His Majesty King Felipe VI awarded decorations to several guests and delivered a speech:
“The Armed Forces and the Civil Guard are today a reflection of a modern, capable and supportive society, which, in addition, knows how to always recognize and thank your commitment to the general interest of our Nation. A commitment that you demonstrate with your professionalism, sense of duty and honor; that you credit with your loyalty and your constant and generous dedication to the service of the Spanish people. A commitment, in short, with Spain and with our Constitution. ”
