I so agree with you, one thing that really stands out for me is the fact that JC and his lawyers want him protected from and by the law during the time of his reign. So during the time of his reign he could not be found guilty of anything and now he wants to use the law to protect himself while he was king..........isn't that a double standard there? In keeping her and her husband say more then the printed word would ever say........she in an intelligent woman, educated and knows business and the same thing happened to her that happened to her father, the wealth, the power, the entitlements, the everything was for them and they were above the law, they in a sense could do no wrong...........well it all came crashing down on them and now JC wants to be protected.........I think a lot of people can read between the lines and realize that you don't really need 12 people in court to say your guilty, people aren't really as stupid as JC/daughter think they are. Hiding out in Switzerland, please stay there and leave your brother alone and cause him no problems like you did your father and mother. JC and Cristina should be very ashamed of themselves to even show their faces to the world but then I don't think they give a damn.

Do we absolutely know that Cristina was not invited to attend? May be an odd question but I've really not been following all of this diligently. I would think that family is family no matter what and by all counts, Cristina should have been there. Perhaps with the ongoing investigation, she, herself decided not to put a shadow on this auspicious occasion and remained away? It would have been too easy to have the media focus on Cristina's presence than where it should be... on Juan Carlos himself and his son and heir.

If Cristina were that selfless I don't think they'd be in the mess they are in today.

Good comment giraffe plus the thoughtless vacations and dinners in fancy restaurants they can do what they want yes but are not doing the smart thing. They both are very lacking in the brains department imo

I never read where Cristina was BANNED. Did you see in writing or just think she was banned?

Cristina was understandably absent from today's proceedings but I doubt she was banned.

I think it's very unlikely that Christina wasn't invited to the events of the abdication and proclamation. I think it's equally unlikely that she would ever have decided to attend as she'd realize her presence would take attention away from her father and brother.

I wonder how much time will pass ,if ever, before a camera catches Cristina and Felipe within 500 feet of each other again.

Cristina is involved in a major scandal. It is unthinkable she go to the proclamation of Felipe.

I think my word "banned" was too harsh but agree with the threads before.

I think she was 'advised' not to attend the ceremony given all that's gone on with Inaki & the Noos investigation.

I think family is family but again perhaps she herself didn´t want to go.

Without media pressure in Bidart....as they are being chased by paps on the beach....
