Spainís King Surprises Morning Commuters by Joining Them on Madridís Metro

MADRID Ė Spainís King Felipe VI surprised metro commuters in the capital Madrid on Wednesday when he took a journey on the networkís line 99 years after his grandfather Alfonso XII made the same trip to inaugurate the system.

The king, who traveled from Sol station to Chamartin, towards the north of the city center, said MadrileŮos should be proud of their transport network.

When a reporter reminded the monarch he was not a frequent user of the public transport system, he retorted it was a little far away from his home, referring to the sumptuous Zarzuela Palace on the outskirts of the capital.

Alfonso XIII made his maiden voyage on Madridís metro to inaugurate what was now known as line 1 of 13.
