General Questions about King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia

When a King of Spain visits the Basques region he has to ask permission as this
is tradition, I learned when I visited there last year.

Is there anymore pictures of this event?

Why would His Majesty have to ask permission when going into the Basque region? Can someone explain this to me?

Alexandria, you are not the only one who finds HM good looking for his age! At least we know also that the future king will look as good.

Thanks for agreeing Chanel! There is a certain quality about His Majesty that is very appealing. He's very distinguished which is attractive in its own way!

Indeed, Felipe is following a very handsome path!

The Kings always spend their hollidays together In Maiorca, in summer and easter, in Baquera to skiing and the Queen always gonna give her support in evry sailing competition taht the king participates. Only a official dutie will stop her/him of doing this :)

I've only heard her voice once in a video on www.a3n.es, but that was very short, and i'm not sure if the video is still on the site. Also (but that is a video again, so it may not be what you want) on www.telecinco.es they have a lot of video's of the royal family. I hope this helps you a bit!

Good luck!!!!

Thumbs up

You're welcome,
I tried to check which one it was but I can't enter the site (some technical problem) but I thought it was the one were they talk about all the weddings that took place in the family, so her own and those of her daughters. This was at www.a3n.es.
Good Luck!!!

Who is Alec Juandicimo Carlos?

I was looking at King Juan Carlos' Wikipedia entry today, and it refers to him and Queen Sofia as having "two daughters, Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina, and two sons, the heir apparent, Felipe, and younger brother Alec Juanducimo Carlos."

Is this a child who died or some prank entry on Wikipedia?

I checked Queen Sofia's entry, and it's not listed there. Must be some prankster.

Don't belive everything you read in Wiki, as is easy to edit by others.
Queen Sofia only has tow daughters, Elena and Cristina and a son, Felipe.

King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia never had another son (and if they had, I sincerely doubt they would ever think of naming the child Alec Juanducimo Carlos). It's just a prank.

I removed the non-existent son from the King's Wikipedia page.

That's what I figured, although I'm always surprised by the little facts that slip past me. For example, I've had an interest in royalty for years, but I only realized recently that Infanta Margarita is blind...

I saw a nasty trick about two years ago that said Queen Elizabeth was going to die the next day.... it was swiftly removed.

Off topic, my friend told me that someone erased everything on the World of Warcraft page and replaced it with "Is lame." I thought that was funny
