She was said to be flying in today with the girls, Felipe went ahead. I would think they joined the party later on.

Beltrán and his wife have their newborn son in hospital because he was born two months ahead his date. It's understandable if they choose to stay in Madrid rather than going to Palma, I'm sure doña Pilar agrees.

I have to agree. Even if her 80th, with his son in the NICU I think it likely hard for him to think of leaving Madrid right now . And I am sure like most grandmas, Pilar would have been the first person to tell him to stay with his wife and baby.

As usually Infanta Elena disappoints in a pajama pants and abundance of cheap-looking jewellery. Was Infanta Cristina in attendance?

That must be one of Doña Simoneta Gómez-Acebo's sons waving goodbye to Queen Sofia and King Felipe VI.

According to the press Letizia and the girls weren't there, and the Urdangarin family.

IMO there is no love lost between Letizia and the Borbon family and she hates to expose the girls to the media, we'll see what the press gets this year, they expect the girls to do a sailing course like their cousins but this hasn't happened. It's a pity that the cousins don't see much of each other.

I guess we'll see the usual forced photocall with Letizia clinging on the girls with 'us against them' attitude and that's it.

I read on another board that Margarita was unable to come as she is recovering from surgery in Madrid.
