A little OT, but does anyone think King Juan Carlos will abdicate since he is getting older and his health is not the best?

Personally, I don't that will happen within the next few years (if ever).

Two more pictures of Felipe and Letizia:
- Look of love
- Holding hands

It feels good to watch Felipe and Letizia together, they are very secure in their relationship, and support eachother lovingly. They are equal partners. It's great to see how Felipe always looks at his wife, checks that everything is right with her and reaches her hand.

I agree LadyFinn. They are a committed, secure and very loving couple. Considering the annus horribilis the SRF is having, they are a breath of fresh air. Intelligent, dedicated, hard working and, as you say, equal partners.

Their bond is growing stronger year after year.

Loved these two

The pictures where they are holding hands are from their visit to Bueno. It was raaining a lot and the weather wasn´t very nice. From what I could read, it seems that Letizia hands were getting cold and she started to rub them. Felipe saw her and holded them to warm her. So sweet!

Touching! Her son had her eyes! What an awful moment for her, when ALL her family was assasinated!

I have recently become so fascinated by the Imperial Family of Russia. Their story is so tragic. Nicholas was not perfect, and Alix wasn't any great help when it came to running their country, but their story is so heart breaking. That image of Nicky with his mother is adorable.

Nicky and Sunny (The Emperor and Empress of Russia)

Sunny and her son, Alexei (The Empress of Russia and Tsarevich Alexei)

The images of Felipe and Letizia are beautiful, they are such a loving couple.

Oh my God, I have never seen this photo!!! How cute - and heartbreaking at the same time. Dagmar certainly had a lot of horrible tragedy in her life.

I have seen this photo in several books that I own, and it always makes me smile.

I love Alexei's curly hair! He was such a beautiful little boy, and his parents and sisters adored him.

I love this picture of Alexandra and Alexei, you can really see the pride in her eyes.
