Is any public celebration expected ? I very much doubt it, not only because D, Juan Carlos is no longer the reigning monarch, but also because of the ciurrent climate in Spain. With the monarchy being openly challenged by the proclamation of the Catalan republic , the least it needs now is a lavish birthday party for a former unpopular king.

I suspect it will be something small and private. And probably separate events as well.

While big celebrations are not SRF style and its uncalled for in the current situation, I think many Spaniards from the old generation still hold JC in high regard, he may have been unpopular in the end for a few blunders but has done a lot for Spain and its democracy, at high personal risk and sacrifice.
Of course there are new times now, but he is more than just a King who shot an elephant and cheated on his wife and had to give up his role in disgrace.

The Queen Sofia Foundation of School of Music might oragnise something in Queen Sofia's honour but I don't expect any gala dinners or balcony moments.

JC and Sofia will attend the Pascua Militar for the first time since retirement on the occasion of JC's 80th birthday:

TM the Kings will preside in the Royal Palace of Madrid the traditional celebration of the Military Passover. On this occasion they will be accompanied by TM the King and Queen Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía, within the framework of the activities that will take place during the year 2018 to mark the 80th anniversary of His Majesty the King Don Juan Carlos on January 5 and Her Majesty Queen Sofia on November 2.

Would like to see Queen Sofia awarded the order of the golden fleece for her years of services on this special anniversary.

Former Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands was the first (foreign) female Sovereign to be created a Dame in the Order of the Golden Fleece. Last year, when the Princess was in Madrid, "just" for a museal visit, she made sure to have the smaller insignia of the Golden Fleece pinned on her dress: picture

It would be nice to see Doña Sofía with te same insignia.

Great they publish a picture, well deserved. So it is clear Cristina and her family were either not there or not included for controversy reasons. Sad either way that the whole family cannot come together at such a special occasion.
