I wouldn't have noticed him either! Good to see him doing some service; I wonder if this is out of inspiration of the military camp he attended for a few months in the USA (or did Sofia just offer to pay for him? I can't remember the full story now).

It was Froilán who was in a military school in the USA

He didn't. If the press reports naming the school are accurate he attended an all boys' boarding school in Virginia. It's not a military school.

How could the press possibly mix up a boys' boarding school with a boys' military school?

Well if their reporting is like that of the Daily Fail then getting king and queen mixed up is very easy, a military school vs. a boarding school is probably a very confusing concept

You're right, I'd gotten the two mixed up. Thanks for noticing!

Juan celebrates his 19th Birthday today and begins University in England. He pass a year because he want to spent more time with his father.

"This Saturday, Juan Urdangarin, the first-born of Iñaki Urdangarin and Infanta Cristina, turns 19. He becomes a responsible young man who, due to the complicated family circumstances he has gone through since becoming a teenager, has had to mature faster than some of his friends. In addition to being an anniversary, King Felipe's nephew also begins a new stage. As Vanity Fair has learned exclusively, he will study at a university in England during this academic year.
A step that had been paralyzed after the entry into prison of his father, Iñaki Urdangarin, who is serving a sentence of five years and 10 months in prison for the Nóos case in Brieva prison (Ávila). In order to spend as much time as possible with his father before he was deprived of liberty, Juan, seventh in the line of succession to the Spanish crown, took a sabbatical year, in which he has given time to volunteer in Cambodia."

Interesting to hear that Juan is studying abroad. It's also nice to hear that he's volunteering in Cambodia - he'll gain a lot of experience and independence from volunteering, especially somewhere abroad.

Juan is likely truly fluent in Spanish, English and French and, if it’s true he’s starting school in the UK, will be completely at ease with Spanish, American and British cultural life, in addition to having friends and contacts from around the world from his time at the International School in Geneva.

I don’t mean to downplay the difficulties he’s gone through because of Inaki’s legal issues but one unintended consequence of the family’s moves will have been an unusually cosmopolitan and culturally sophisticated upbringing, at least for the elder two boys, even compared to similarly privileged children.

Pablo does indeed look a lot like Juan Carlos. Nice to see that he's following in Inaki's sporting footsteps (hopefully not in his *other* footsteps!).

Yes, indeed

I assume he never had intentions to do so but seeing your father being locked up will hopefully/most likely deter any of their children from doing something comparable in the future.

I know that isn't the case for all children but these have everything else going for them, so they have lots of better alternatives than spending life in prison.
