I´m so happy that Infanta Cristina will be able to go Mallorca with her children and enjoy some summertime with her Mother and sister and nephews. It´ll be very good for the children´s morale and happiness.

Well, I´m happy the family can be in Barcelona and that the Infanta and her children will go to Marivent.IMO if they wait for whatever decision of the courts, it will probably be 2018 before they can come back....

Queen Sofia arrived in Mallorca on Sunday and drove to Marivent with Cristina's four children. Cristina apparently stayed behind in Barcelona with her husband. It is not known when she will join her family at Marivent. Meanwhile, the couple is reported to be more united than ever, with no signs of separation or divorce and Cristina believing in her husband's innocence.

Do you suppose Cristina's change of plans is meant to be a show of support for her husband?

That's a smart move of Cristina since nobody believes she is a dummy wife deceived by her husband.

Her attitude angers and confuses the press and the citizens... from the beginning she would have agreed to send the children with their grandmother, and avoid this confusion.

They should accept that they have not done well, and have a more humble attitude... but all they do is tighten and complicate matters.

Yes, both Infantas should scale down their duties to a bare minimum. It is a thankless job. Crown Princely couple appears to do a wonderful job of politically marketing themselves and should do everything.

What? They woke up two days into the vacation and suddenly realized it was Inaki's name day?

The Urdangarin family in Barcelona. They should not have brought the children, they are clearly suffering.

I know the children are suffering, but with whom would they stay?
And, of course they probably suffer in the US as well.

I think the media pressure is much bigger in Spain than in the US. To see Juan cover his face when being followed by paparazzi in the car is really painful.

I don't really agree about the media being less pressure in the US. They are pretty much a mob when it comes to whatever person they are following. During the Tom Cruise divorce that little girl of his couldn't leave her home without the craziness.

Tom Cruise is a superstar in the US, hardly anybody knows who Inaki or Cristina are, let alone their children.

The only photographers who may follow the Urdangarin family in the US are those hired by Spanish magazines.

As an American, I completely concur. They will be hounded from time to time by
Spanish media unless they undertake intergalactic travel. Can anyone picture them living like the Jetsons or Lost in Space ("Danger! Danger! Miguel Urdangarin!) I'm sorry to say that most Americans 1) cannot place Spain on a map; 2) don't realize that Spain is a monarchy, and 3) have ANY idea who Inaki and Cristina are, who their children are, and what the accusations are.

I believe that if Cristina keeps a low profile for the sake of her children and stays out of Spain, media interest even in Spain will decrease, although it won't go away completely. The issue here is relative anonymity and stability for the children. I think in both regards the U.S. is the best place. After three year those children are settled and it's very possible they, esp. little Irene considers herself quite American. She was only 4 when she moved to the States. If Cristina hates the U.S. or hates the idea of her children growing up American, I for one don't give a flying fig. I think the she should have considered that a long time ago.

Those photos of the children, especially the oldest, breaks my heart. I do understand the ire of the Spanish public, and the media interest, but surely for the sake of compassion, stay away from the children. In some ways, I see these kids as the biggest victims in all of this.

I agree, the press/media does seem to put more pressure on them when they are in Spain. IMO, they should have left the children with Queen Sofia or in the US. I have to agree that most people (present company excluded of course) wouldn't know the Infanta and her family from any other family in DC. I would think they would want to stay as far away from this sort of pressure at any cost, even if it is staying in the US for a while.

I agree 100%. Anyone here in America that I asked about this situation knew nothing except for one professor at University and he could care less. They are not news worthy here except for the extremely small Spanish press. And, even then, the Cubans and Mexicans are not interested. Cristina should put her children first at this time and stop being so self-centered. Her prestigious life has changed and will never be the same. Something she hasn't really accepted yet.
