You're welcome, magnik.

There are a lot of similar 'amusing' mistakes on Wiki but they are usually removed very quickly. A couple of years ago, just as I became interested in modern Royalty, I stumbled across Queen Fabiola's entry, which, among other things, read, "...the Queen... who was briefly married to Phil Spector".
Another mistake I noticed just today was about Archduke Otto von Habsburg: his page states that Otto has been President of Pan-European Union since 1986, when in fact he's been Interim President since 1972 and President since 1973; they celebrated 32 years of his presidency in 2004.

Queen Sofia is a "Greek Princess". Her father was King Paul and her mother Queen Frederika of Hanover. She is a second cousin to Prince Charles. She was born in Greece, but is from the Sonderburg-Glucksburg etc dynasty. She is a decendant of Queen Victoria. The Greek Royals are mostly Danish and German. She is a lovely woman.

Supposedly she shares her time between India, Spain and England. It's well known that QS considers Irene her best friend - Irene is apparently a remarkably interesting woman with an electic personality and a wide range of interests.

Hope this helped.

Aside from the fact that JC went shooting elephants, a mistake he won't be making ever again considering the backlash in Spain, QS keeps doing what she's always done - smile and say nothing in respect to their marriage. It's been dead for more than a decade.

Queen Sofia strongly believes in a traditional monarchy’s natural progression, this means that Felipe will be King upon JC's death.

Princess Irene resides at the Zarzuela palace when she's in Spain.

I read that QS has her own apartment at the Zarzuela palace so I guess Princess Irene stays close to her
I have not seen Princess Irene in Palma with the rest of the family, I guess she dose not go on vacation with the RF

Technically Princess Irene is not part of the Spanish Royal Family,she does attend events with her sister Queen Sofia from time to time.

I'm not sure if Princess Irene has gone to Mallorca for the annual summer holiday,she may well have in the past.

An Ard Ri, princess Irene is not part of the SRF at all. As members of the RF got older, some relationships have become firmer. Queen Sofia loves her sister and Irene loves being with her family...in the background.

Irene is such an interesting character. She has the spirit of a hippie, with an extraordinarily sense of discretion. She is also one who doesn't care much for royal protocol at all.

Interesting woman.
