The Asturias couple wasn't in attendance as they were abroad,one would have noticed the Prince allright,but the Princess
seems to glide down the road of anorexia deeper and deeper....not suited...and doing nothing to improve...a very
unhappy situation arose...I do hope she will find the guts to kick herself in the behind...she could have said NO..but
she didn't...este chica complexa....And she can't blame it all on " the Court"  either...It would grace her to do a "Victoria"
and be frank and open about the anorexia bit and thus earn sympathy and respect for herself and the House..But no,noting yet.
..Sad,really sad...

The Casa del Rey has had to deny rumours that the King´s daughters Cristina and Elena were no longer to be considered members of the Royal Family.  These rumours emerged when the Infantas´workloads were reduced and the King commented that the future Royal Family would be closer to the "trunk" of the Prince of Asturias´family.  Some think it was an attempt to distance the monarchy from the scandal currently surrounding Infanta Crisitina´s husband Iñaki Undagarin...

Does the King receive a lot of requests for help regarding particular emergencies? !HOLA! has often reported about people who, not having been helped through the customary govt channels, appeal directly to the king to intercede in their behalf.

Perhaps I have asked this question before, but I don't think I received a satisfactory response, so I'm asking it again:
what did you expect on 22 November 1975?
'twas no secret that, when JCI came to power, many were eagerly salivating for a Spanish Civil War II. Miche Medina, cartoonist of EL MUNDO of Puerto Rico, drew a cartoon that showed a bull reading the news of Juan Carlos' enthronement while smiling a very malevolent leer. 36 years, 4 months and 5 days later, I have yet to hear from any of those ghouls any admission that they were totally wrong about His Catholic Majesty and modern Spain.

So,Juanito thought he could go off on a Eliphant hunt in Botswana.....Tough luck!!
No,the eliphants didn't shoot back,but the King trippled,fell over and broke his hip in three places!!
Easy does it when you suffer from osteoporoses like he does,it's peanuts to break something,now he knows.

Bingo Juanito,that will teach you!How dare you hunt for eliphants while there's a ban on that!!!
Even for Kings.Except in backward Botswana ofcourse....Not!..He was immediatly flown home to Madrid and
was stuffed with a artificial hip.He won't be able to work for the next six weeks!De verdad,what a family.
I'm soo not sorry for this man! :-X >:(

 I agree with you Lucien.  I have no clue why he was hunting elephants. Very selfish unless there is something we do not know about this affair.
 Also, in the same BBC article, it was reported that his grandson shot himself in a gun accident. That must have brought some memories back.

Yes,to where he accidently shot his brother decades ago.I mentioned Froilans mischieve in the Jaime and Elena thread
a few days ago.Great year for the Spanish RF,a son-in-law,Inaki,up to his neck in a fraude scandal that has him banned from all
events involving the other members of the RF by decree of El Rey,a grandson that shoots himself in the foot while he's not yet
of the legal age to even hold a gun,and now an old goat persuing his "spare-head" on a so-called eliphant hunt that back-fired and
munched him in the butt...All womanizers know you shouldn't call ladies eliphants,not even partially and least of all where it counts most..

Poor Queen Sophie,who was in Greece for the Orthodox Easter celebrations this weekend flew back home to Madrid to sit by her husband... ::)
