That`s exactly what I thought when I saw the photos. Just don`t pretend everything is fine when it`s clearly not. IMO hunting elephants is disgusting and I hope that Letizia and Felipe think the same. After all, in the light of recent events they seem to be the only sensible members of the SRF.

But it`s lovely to see Leonor and Sofia again, at least one positive thing.

The thing that infuriates me about hunting and killing elephants is that there is no need to. They are not dangerous. They cannot be used for food. Their hides have no value as clothing or accessories material.

Not only is this cruel, it is wasteful. Shame on Juan Carlos!

Of course they are used for food, why wouldn't they?

She really is lovely, imo.

I pray for the King's smooth recovery. Probably, His Majesty would want to reduce hunting activity and do some physical healthy exercises like jogging, riding horses, playing golf or simply walk around the palace because I see hunting can be tough considering for someone who has undergone few medical surgeries.

She would never compromise Juanito because she wants to see her son on the throne. Sofia is as old school royal as her husband. The show must go on.

Good to see that she is there, there would be even worse comments if she hadnt shown up. Juan Carlos will be ok soon, physically.

Apparently she spent a grand total of 15 minutes with the King, which rather speaks for itself.

That's rather telling.
I fear that health issues are not going to be the only problems the King will face in the times to come.

What a loveless marriage it seems likely to be. I've read about the Kings supposed extramarital indiscretions from time to time and I truly feel for the Queen.

I once thought Juan Carlos rather suave and charasmatic, but in light of recent events and when reflecting upon what has otherwise been reported in regards to his affairs I now think His Majesty to be quite self indulgent.

Good for Sofia not cutting her holiday short. How embarrassing this all must be for her as well, though of course she is resolved to smile and wave it off. Outwardly attempting to signal that all is well when no doubt it is far from so. An expected response no less, but even so, she is quite the lady and she really deserves better from her husband. Anyone's partner would.

Here's hoping the King recovers well from the surgery and takes a long hard look in the mirror. He's not getting any younger so perhaps its about time he started righting any wrongdoings before it's too late.

Long enough to give him a good whack over the head with her purse.

Why do you assume that just because the King may be unfaithful to his wife their marriage is loveless? Fidelity does not equal love just as infidelity does not equal lack of love.
