Indeed, it often amuses me to hear stories of frail 80-year-old men having "affairs" and parading with their mistresses.

Not to defend infidelity, but even if JC is having an affair with this woman, as opposed to a friendship, does anyone think Sofia really cares at this point? JC and Sofia's marriage has been over in everything but name for a long time now. They come together for family occasions and sometimes official occasions and always seem to be at ease in each other's company when together in public. Then they go home to their separate lives. Not unheard of among very longstanding marriages, (including plenty that started as love matches).

I would hope that all of the grandchildren have a loving relationship with both Juan Carlos and Sofia in private. The eight children are privileged in many ways but none of them have had or will have entirely easy lives. Elena's kids had their father's health issues then the divorce. Christina's have their father's ongoing legal battles not to mention the parallel media trial/witch hunt. And Felipe's children will face increasingly intense pressure on a number of fronts as they become teenagers and young adults. They could all use as many loving adult relationships in their lives as possible.

Not really a shocker since JC had his mistress Corinna by his side (of course as a member of the business delegation) on an official trip to Saudi Arabia in 2006, among other public outings.

Several Spanish magazines are reporting that Queen Sofia wants to permanently settle in Palma de Mallorca and reside at the Marivent Palace.

King Juan Carlos will celebrate his 80th birthday on January 5th, the article claims that he wants a party a la Harald of Norway but Felipe is opposed to it. Hard to believe since the srf is not famous for such parties and with the 50th birthday of Felipe coming up on January 30, there will be no room for the old King's celebrations. https://www.msn.com/es-ar/entretenim...EkK?li=BBpmbhJ still there will be an interesting family reunion on the way with Cristina and Inaki certainly making their way into Zarzuela to celebrate with the Patron. And it's only the beginning of a year of celebrations since Sofia will be 80 in November 2018.

The House of the King has tired of absurd stories ... They have announced that in 2018 there will be several activities organized with different institutions to celebrate the 80 years of Juan Carlos and Sofia. On January 6, the day after Juan Carlos's birthday, they will attend the Pascua Militar, for the first time since Felipe became king.

I agree, I wonder if they are starting to rekindle in their old age. It was lovely to see Juan Carlos and Sofia so relaxed with one another in Madrid. Is it snowing there? I saw some white over the leaves on the bushes in the photos.

Defiantly no snow on that date given both the king and queen have no overcoats,Madrid is a lot milder of late that the UK/Eire!
