Relationship between King Juan Carlos and Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth calls him "Juanito" and King Juan Carlos calls her "Lilibeth". When Queen Elizabeth went to Spain on a state visit a few years ago, there was one day with no official events. King Juan Carlos invited his cousin "Lilibeth" to a restaurant (King Juan Carlos loves to go to restaurants). Queen Elizabeth replied: "But Juanito, I´ve never been in a restaurant and I don´t expect to go to any for the time being."

Isn't that so sad? In many ways, I feel sorry for Queen Elizabeth. She is so detached from the "real world"

I think that maybe because she had never been in a restaurant before,so maybe she can feel ashmed or something like that.In life,sometimes there are some people who had never done,gone something and when other people talk,invite,want..them to do,go..that,they can feel they can't,or they ashmed..So,i think that with Queen Elizabeth,it is normal.It is human feeling.

always thinking ahead!

I also think that she was just being polite...due to increased security for heads of state, I'm sure that the British government's security forces would have been in such a panic if she had gone...therefore, she saved everyone a headache by declining the invitation.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip dined at Trader Vic's, a restaurant in San Francisco, in 1983.

She is reported to have commented that it had been 17 years since they had eaten at a restaurant.
