I don't think I have ever seen Infanta Elena happier or more content than in the last couple of years.
As they say here, better nightmarish ending, than nightmare without ending.

Froilan has been operated after a shot in the foot.
The son of the Infanta Elena suffered Monday afternoon in a "slight accident" on the right foot, while conducting target practice, when he was with his father, Jaime de Marichalar, and his sister, Victoria Federica, on the farm that his father's family has in Soria, as confirmed to ABC and El Mundo from Casa del Rey.

That must bring back some dark memories for the king. But fortunately he is only lightly wounded. I can't imagine what bloody idiot let 13 y/o children play with guns btw.

I dont think they played around (not with this kind of family history in mind!!!) but were careless in terms of safety. A 13 year old has to be supervised like every second when dealing with weapons.
Its not good headlines, will have been a shock for Froilan and people will think, what kind of family is this, what kind of problems are they bringing upon themselves?

They did target shooting with a shotgun, not a revolver or something, he wasnt hit by one single bullet but part of the shotgun spray.

Terrible accident, and one that is bound to evoke some really troublesome memories for the King and the Royal Family in general. I am glad Froilan is all right though.
Children of that age are very hard to keep an eye on; if Froilan was wounded during target practice, no matter how much his father or other adults kept an eye on him, there is always a possibility of an accident.

I´m totally against any kind of firearm, except for policemen or people in the armed forces.
What a scary accident, especially for a family with a history of tragedy with firearms.
I know many royal families hunt and teach their youngsters to hunt, but it´s something that is not only cruel but stupid.
IMO one should only hunt for food and if there is not other way around.

They probably did skeet shooting / clay pidgeon shooting and not hunt. I personally dont think that a 13 year old should carry a weapon, I guess its illegal anyway, but we know how people are, if Jaime's family is very familiar with weapons of course they include the kid, same way adults let youngsters drive cars on their property while sitting on the passenger seat. There is always a risk, some parents decide it can well be taken.

In general, I think the SRF have shoot themselves in the foot with this story because what comes up now is of course the accident in which Juan Carlos killed his own brother with a firearm decades ago.

Queen Sofia and Infanta Elena speak to the media outside Quiron Hospital on April 10, 2012 in Madrid, Spain. The Spanish royals are visiting Felipe Juan Froilan in hospital after the 13-year-old grandson of Spain's King Juan Carlos, accidentally shot himself in the foot outside a family home in the town of Soria.

Spanish King Juan Carlos' grandson shoots himself in foot - Telegraph

I wonder what will happen here, in other countries the police would be all over the place and for sure charges would be pressed against the parents for giving a minor access to firearms and they would be lucky if they escaped with a fine, instead of losing their license to hold firearms in the first place. Lets wait & see if everyone is equal with regard to the law, including the Borbon family. Froilan could easily have been killed if the gun hadnt pointed to the ground, or killed somebody else.
