Thank you, Jacqueline for the photos! Infanta Cristina looks a great deal like her papa and she seems to be very active in her royal duties...all around a seemingly pleasant person.

What did you think of her wedding gown? I thought it was lovely.

King Juan Carlos is still quite a handsome man, IMHO....

Hi Julia!

I agree that JC is still very handsome.

I liked Infanta Cristina's wedding gown. I think that the more simple gowns are just much more stunning than those that are filled with embroideries and so on. The more simple a gown is the more extravagant one can be with one's choice of veil and diademe. I thought that Cristina looked lovely. :)

Yes, I add my gratitude to you Jacqueline! I espescially appreciated the second picture of Cristina in the blue dress. She looks lovely and radiant.

Although in my opinion, I think Elena looks more like her father, and both her own children take after her. Although Cristina's second son, Pablo Nicolas bears remarkable resemblance to the King when he was younger.

Cristina looks radiant in that second last picture at the mass for the King's father.

And how cute are Cristina and Inaki. Stealing a private moment during that state visit! I wonder if they were wishing that that tree would've been bigger to better hide them!

Cristina does look lovely and radiant in that picture at the mass. It's also nice to see a recent photo of the Gomez-Acebo children. You can see the edge of Bruno's face as well as his wife, Barbara, walking beside him. Her baby's due in August I believe. I see Simoneta and her husband Jose-Miguel and a couple of her brothers behind her.

www.ibl.se King Juan Carlos during a visit by the head of state of Germany.

I really like Cristina's hair in this picture.

A very glamorous-looking Crisitna. We hardly ever see Cristina looking this dolled-up; she's usually very simple and natural looking.

:flower: Isn´t it just cute, how very alike princess Elena´s children are with their mother! You know them always in pictures. And Elena herself takes very much after her own mother.

I didn't realize that Jaime was having trouble with his mobility still after his stroke. I guess maybe he gets tired after a prolonged period of walking.

Queen Sofia is obviously quite emotional and saddened by the events. You can tell by her eyes. Almost as if she has lost a loved one herself in the crash.
