I think Letizia had not cancelled her event if they had not known that Francisco was about to pass away. Its always sad but he was 98, had a very long and eventful life.
RIP

I'm so sorry :( My condolences to Queen Letizia and her family. My grandmother passed away two weeks ago so I can understand how tough is this moment.
RIP

Sad news for the family.
Let's hope the press won't bother them in such sad times.

Queen Letizia of Spain in mourning after her grandfather dies aged 98 | Daily Mail Online

I am sure Letizia was close to her grandfather but I doubt he was present at the birth of her daughters!

Very sad news but I kind of sensed he was dying, because Letiza never cancels engagements, unless something bad is happening...

A man that certainly experienced life's joys and sorrows in the past decade or so. Glad that he is now at peace and my condolences to his surviving family members.

Oh, what sad news. My condolences to Queen Letizia and her family at this hard time.

98 is a grand age!

I found this lovely pic of Don Francisco. The site publishing it says it's from F&L's proclamation last year. He looked very frail when we saw it on the ceremony at the Congress, but he still attended the reception at the Royal Palace afterwards and followed the events on a chair in one of the palace rooms. I think it's a heartwarming and nice photo of him:

Thank you for finding and sharing this w/us. How proud he must have been on that day of his Granddaughter.

My condolences go out to Queen Letitzia and the entire Family. Saying Good bye to those we love is among the hardest things we all have to do. :( :(

Queen Letizia saw her maternal grandfather Francisco Rocasolano minutes before he died in the Hospital. She arrived, in the strictest secrecy, at 21.00 on Monday evening and could be a few minutes with the father of her mother who was dying at 98 years following a cardiac problem. Francisco Rocasolano died shortly after the Queen left the Salamanca Hospital at about 22.00.

Descanse en paz, Don Francisco.

One of the very few respectable members of Letizia's family, an honest, decent, hardworking man who became a shadow of himself since the death of his beloved Enriqueta in 2008.

I would hope the whole family can mourn him in peace, without the press looking for every small details about the funeral etc...
