I am having a laugh at these choreographed visits whenever the King is in hospital.

This time I notice that a lot of people come and visit the King, including those who I would not expect, like JAIME PENAFIEL, yes, the bitter old guy who badmouthes Letizia so much and who doesnt have a clue about what is going on in the royal house - as I am reading on this forum - , so I wonder why he can just walk into the hospital and visit the King, having a chat on the way with the head of the royal household, Rafael Spottorno
http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/J...0uOiWoTMHl.jpg

Carlos Revenga, the Infanta's secretary (who supposedly knows all the secrets), isn't this a statement?
http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/S...C5zjnfLUGl.jpg

But, as the pictures indicate, lots of people are making their pilgrimage into the hospital, this time Inaki is not among them, maybe he got banned this time

Interesting, what kind of people the King wants to have around him when he has an operation, apart from his eversmiling family.

Thank God I was not born a royal, with all of the drama my family loves to create over things like routine scans, I could just imagine what they'd all do if we were in the exact position of the Bourbons at this time. I guarantee I'd be showing up at the hospital drunk just to deal with all of it, and I'd be shutting off my phone well before trip.

I too have noticed all the drama surrounding these visits. The Asturias family in particular seems to be cast first and foremost in the role of smoke and mirrors. It seems that these two little girls are trotted out at such times in order to remind people that much better times lie ahead. The are the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret Rose to the dastardly Edward VIII, and the treacherous Wallis, but the stakes are so much higher. One wonders what sort of subconscious pressures are placed on these two little ones, or conscious ones, i.e., "Don't even think of uttering a peep or looking sideways at your sister during that visit to hospital," and that sort of thing.

I'd like to have a drink and some tapas with Leti and find out what all of this stuff means to the family.

I know it's hard enough watching the elders in the family age and slowly decline, but the psychological baggage surrounding a King's decline must be even greater.

I suppose I am way, way off topic here. Sorry! We giraffes find it difficult to stay on topic. Perhaps we need a thread where I can say whatever I want whenever I want.....

Oh no, GracieGiraffe! Keep on going with your posts, they´re amusing and you definitely has many interesting points of view

And I don´t think this is OT at all, we´re all discussing the though times this family is going through and every opinion is welcomed and appreciated, at least for me.

I agree with you, I really would like to be a fly on Zarzuela´s window and just hear every conversation there.

Duke, Peñafiel didn´t visit the King. He just spoke with Sporttorno and Ayuso, as many other journalists spoke... they were smart enough to avoid Peñafiel´s show. He was there a few minutes to be photographed while the king was in surgery, it was fun listening to journalists and photographers covering the information in the hospital laughed at his ridiculous attempt to appear in the media.

I though the same when I saw the images. I would never think that the King would receive the old Peña at his hospital room, but who knows? He´s doing such strange things lately...

Revenga´s visit is more worrying, IMO

I have to agree. He's lost the very puffy and swollen look.

The king looks quite fragile at the audience on Thursday. The article writes that the king has seen stumble and slip out alarmingly.
