Guess they had a double celebration to also celebrate the king's recent birthday. Quite special that the king is coming to celebrate Iñaki (and not his daughter or one of his grand chikdren and just meet Ìñaki as a sidenote).

Never thought of it as a double family celebration and I guess it was but I doubt we will ever see photos of that family gathering!

On the contrary, I think there are people who are very interested in cleaning up their image and that we will see the photos.

It is great that Infanta Cristina will have an opportunity to see her family.

I'm not surprised either. Cristina and her family absent on January 5th, whatever the reason was, I never thought it had to do with her parents, JC and Sofia, not wanting them there, at least not Cristina and her children.
At the funeral of Infanta Alicia, both JC and Sofia broke protocol when entering the royal chapel and embraced Cristina in front of the cameras and with everyone looking, a powerful gesture towards her being still part of the family. There was no need to do this in public but they did, and by doing so, they kind of embarrassed F&L who were clearly uncomfortable with this, even more so as most people present only curtsied for the old Kings but not for the new Kings (there was a video showing this).

So if HOLA will have pictures from Geneva, I won't be surprised to see them, it's nothing compared to that gesture in the chapel.

And this whole drama will only completely unfold in the sad event of JC or Sofia passing, when the siblings will take center stage at those funerals.

Fact is that both parents support her publicly (they could do so behind closed doors), JC would not be travelling to Inaki's birthday party to Geneva if it wasnt important to him.

If Cristina believes that JC could interfere with a court of law at this stage she is really delusional.

But of course you are right, after all it was JC who tried to 'save' Inaki by sending him to Washington to get the whole issue out of sight, out of mind, but it didn't work out. So I guess JC has already done whatever was possible for him.

JC may do what he wants now. He loves so much Christina (crying at his wedding) and his grandchildren.

On March 21 Urdangarin was to appear in court to hear his fate. Anyone know what that is? I don't read Spainish, but it seems El Pais was saying 10 years.

the hotel where she stayed in mozambique was the only one to tweet about how delighted they are to host her. i guess this is as much 'official' recognition as she will get.

----

on other news, the buyer of cristina and inaki's spanish home in barcelona was made known. it is Laith Pharaon, a good friend of JC and an investor closely connected to the saudi arabian royal family.

JC was in saudi arabia some months ago, it wouldn't surprise me if he moved his relations to get this deal to close.

Thanks for the info, carlota. the srf have been rubbing shoulders with saudi arabia for many years, closing some lucrative deals for spain and I guess that Cristina's house will have made a good price (Andrew & Fergie's Sunninghill Park comes to my mind).
Felipe just hosted a lunch for the CP of SA in the royal palace, money excuses everything these days (goes for most other royal families/governments too of course).

I just wish they would leave her alone for at least a few months.

Yes I do too and hopefully the visit from Elena will bring her some small relief.
