Was Doña María de las Mercedes buried with the honours of a Queen? We all knows that he couldn't reign, but without the Second Republic, she would have become the Queen and her husband, the King. Was she honored as a Queen, even if she was not?

Vanesa.

I agree with you but do you think in the same spirit that Queen Beatrix is the equivalent to Queen EII. In the protocol field mey be because the both are reigning sovereign, but in the fact?

As you know, generally speaking, the Queen EII never goes to the officila funeral act of , except those of the members of her family while the Queen Beatrix is assisting at this kind of ceremony.


For instance, it's quiet the same thing, is she went to the Churchill's funerals? ( I'm going to check....) but I fear not.

The Queen Beatrix decided to go she, probably also for her friendship with the King Juan Carlos. By Luxembourg went the Great Duchess. And by Jordan and Belgium the two queens "widows". Great Britain and Monaco to the heirs, and Morocco to the brother of the King.

This news clarifies it a bit

Terra - Actualidad - Nacional - DIVERSAS CASAS REALES ASISTEN AL FUNERAL POR LA CONDESA DE BARCELONA
"Between the guests to the funereal ceremony there appear the Queens of Belgium and of the Netherlands, the Prince of Wales, the Princesses of Sweden and Denmark and the Princes Inheritors of Monaco, Norway, Jordan, Morocco and Nepal."

I found more photos

Queen Fabiola

May be, I'm wrong but it seems to me that the Queen fabiola is wearing the peineta? What do you think?

If she is, it's a very small one. It's sort of hard to tell because of the angle. It might just be her hair pushing up the mantilla.
