Forty-two years after her death in exile in Lausanne and 26 after her remains returned to her "beloved Spain," Queen Victoria Eugenia will be moved shortly to the Pantheon of the Kings of the Monastery of El Escorial.

As is required, when the grandmother of King Juan Carlos returned to Spain, her coffin was placed in the hall of the Pantheon, known as the "rotting room" where the remains of members of the royal family have to stay 25 years before be transferred to the Pantheon of Kings or Infantes.
Queen Victoria Eugenia has already exceeded that time last year, ABC has been told, that members of the House of the King this week finalized the details of the transfer with the Augustinian monks, who are guarding the Monastery of El Escorial and royal tombs.

A portrait of Ena, painted by László, will be auctioned at Christie's in the end of April

http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/p...8-details.aspx

A similar portrait exists, probably from the same sitting

https://portraitmalerhamburg.files.w...1920-kopie.jpg

(At the same auction portraits of other Spanish royals will be sold as well, plus a beautiful wedding veil, worn by Infanta María de la Paz)

Was it announced who was selling them or is that kept private?

The daughters of Teresa of Bavaria, Myrta and Sonia Márquez, are auctioning part of the estate of their aunt Cristina of Bavaria, Countess of Odiel. They are great-granddaughters of Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria (son of Infanta Paz) and Infanta Maria Teresa of Spain.

Victoria Eugenie's uncle, King Edward VII of England, threw Victoria a lavish coming out party in November of 1904.
