El viaje privado que la princesa tuvo que anular tras la cada del Rey

Letizia had to interrupt her long-planned weekend in Alicante with her journalist friends when the King had his accident and she had to show up with Felipe & the girls at the hospital. Now thats an additional explaination for the sour face.

I say she had the proper facial expression considering the situation. Not smiling does not equate to sour face.

You know what? I can UNDERSTAND her. Accident under questionnable circumstances, more pressure to the reputaion of the Royal Family because of - yeah, what? Midlife Crisis, Attempt to deny age - of the Souveraign and you have to come back to officially show support .... whereas I am 150% convinced, that Letizia does not agree with the Kings behaviour at all. And on top of that she then have to interrupt her weekend with friends - which I assume is "holy" because it is a kind of "normality" which surely happenes seldom in her position.

Because the faster he is back to work, the faster he can create positive headlines to replace chatter about elephants, mistresses and other extravaganzas...

With every negativ headline more bad feelings are created about the monarch.

Because he simply can not afford to not be seen as strong and healthy in his current crisis.

It is not unusual for a hip replacement to dislocate. I had a friend that dislocated his 4 times that I know of. You have to learn to be careful.

Spanish town of Berga declares hunting King 'persona non grata'
Quote:
Berga, a town in Spain's northeastern Catalonian region, has declared the Spanish king an unwelcome person over his recent elephant hunting trip in Botswana during a severe financial crisis. Berga, population 17,160, situated 67 miles north of Barcelona, approved a symbolic motion proposed by the pro-Catalan independence Popular Unity Candidature party declaring King Juan Carlos I ''persona non grata,'' the Associated Press reported.

El Rey viaj dos veces con la princesa Corinna en contra del criterio de sus mdicos
La princesa Corinna fue agasajada como consorte del Rey en un viaje a Emiratos rabes

The King traveled twice to Princess Corinna against the advice of his doctors.
Despite casareal confirming that Juan Carlos would need 7 to 10 weeks to regain full mobility on his achilles tendon, and that during that time period he would not participate in any official act outside Zarzuela, only three weeks after surgery, the King traveled privately to Monaco to spend the weekend with Corinna and assist in the Monte Carlo Boat Show.

Six weeks later Juan Carlos was scheduled to attend the opening of the Barcelona Boat Show as official event but shortly before the visit casareal announced that the visit was suspended because of replications of the tendon operation.

But the next day, ignoring the advice of physicians, the King launched a new private trip, also accompanied by Princess Corinna Sayn-Wittgenstein, to Kuwait and the UAE, where Corinna was labelled "consort to Juan Carlos" by the local authorities / royal house and attended the full Ladie's Programme alongside the other dignitaries' wives or compagnions.

It is utter mauvais ton to allow to present Princess Corinna as a consort. Such arrogance is most likely to irreparably mar King Juan Carlos' legacy.

Not exactly new News. The Monaco trip was in September and the Middle East trip was in November. Both incidents before his April elephant hunt/hip break and Corinna's subsequent departure from Spain.

Ok boys and girls, if you want to see what it means to train wreck a monarchy at the Eurostar's speed, follow these people. The Windsors are saints next to these people, and yes I am American and I am a decendent of Phillip of Spain. The stuff this king is doing while his countries economy is as close to ruin as it probable has ever come in its history. Don't start with the cost of the Jubilee and the Summer Olympics. Britain is in an excellent position. The plans for both events started long before the world economy tanked. Spain could use the reason to have so much money to fall into there country. This is what an Out Of Touch monarch behaves like Britain, Commonwealth. Charles has done some dumb things, but he is not a stupid man. I would be hard pressed to find someone to say the same about Carlo. I don't know much about the Crown Prince except he married fairly recently, has started a family, and has a Huge New Palace. The two newest Windsor palace was purchased by Queen Victoria. Come to think of it, the Crown Prince does seem too in touch himself.

PI don't remember the British economy on the verge of ruin at the time and PC going to off Africa to slaughter endangered animals. That was a recorded private phone call and neither parties had any knowledge they were being recorded (illegal). Cell phones still had the presumption of privacy and there were no radios capable of that intersepting that spectrum Carlos if flaunting a mistress all over the world.

OH MY GOSH! HE DID NOT LEARN ANYTHING!!!!!
Simply forget his half-convincing excuse, he simply did not get the message! Is he so narcistic, or does he still mean, he is able to hover above everything and everybody......
I heard some rumors, that he split with Corinna shortly after the hunting incident -- well, that was a hoax then. Maybe he´s really madly in love with her. Ok. But - gosh - why it MUST be Monte Carlo then and Kuwait and UAE and "Consort" ins these difficult times, and also putting his health at risk?
Spain is in a larger economic crisis than ever. And: the rest of the RF really tried to make as much damage control as possible. And what about you, Sir?

If you actually read the story, you will see as I posted above that both of these trips took place last fall well before the hunting trip/broken hip and Corrina later leaving Spain.
