He appears to be all right. The Queen, after visiting her grandson in hospital, said he was fine and playing games when they left.
As for the reminder, back in 1956 King Juan Carlos accidentally shot dead his his 14-year-old younger brother Alfonso. The event left the royal family, especially the King, deeply traumatised.

According to BBC News, "Under Spanish law, children under 14 are not allowed to use firearms and questions have been raised as to whether the boy's parents will be held legally responsible for the accident."

Yes, Queen Sofia usually smiles all problems away, the damage controller of the SRF, but from the pictures we could see Elena was far from it. Only to say that the boy was with his father and not with her and that the father left (no united pictures out of care for their son) through the back door when Elena arrived says it all.

Relations are difficult between Elena & Jaime:

I bet Infanta Elena was very upset over her son´s accident. She loves sports, but I´ve never seen anything linked to hunting as far as she is concerned.

Well, it seems that JC has quite a reputation within the family, commanding respect
Apparently Froilan said to the medical services that "grandpa will be very angry" and that his father didnt have anything to do with it, it was his own fault (thats kids logic, I guess).
Froilán: 'El abuelo se va a enfadar mucho'

While the official version of casa real said that Froilan was practising shooting, the Queen said the he was hunting.

How awful. Talk about an 'annus horribilis' for the SRF. Glad the young man seems to be ok.

Shooting or Hunting...both of them aren't safe for kids...also they are not the proper activities a father should teach to his child...

How is Queen Sophia minimizing anything? Felipe IS fine and children DO heal quickly. What else should she have said to the press? Surely you don't think it would have been appropriate for her to have said anything against her grandson's father/his family in public?

What they're all saying to each other in private may well be an entirely different matter...

Why should a father not teach his son how to shoot or hunt? Is he supposed to hire someone to teach his son?

Spanish King Juan Carlos' grandson Felipe Juan Froilan shoots himself in foot | Mail Online
Grandson of King Juan Carlos hurt in rifle accident - Europe - World - The Independent
Another Spanish Royal family member shoots himself in the foot – Expat - My Telegraph

Lots of international coverage. Looks like the other son in law has to report to a judge pretty soon too, not a good record for JC. Who would have thought.
