You're welcome ladejesus!
Juan carlos didn't change much, I think the same. His smile and eyes are very unique. I think Prince Felipe changed a lot more than his father.

Thanls for posting those pictures Regina, I don´t recall having seen many Spanish Royal pictures of this period before. Moving to see the image of Juan Carlos and his father the Count of Barcelona, next top the coffin of Don Alphonse, who died so tragically.

Yes, such tragic moment. Alfonso's death was a big blow for his father Don Juan. They were very close. Alfonso was the youngest and according to several testimonies the smartest of Don Juan's sons.

King Juan carlos and Queen Sofia come back to Estoril (September, 2000) to inaugurate a monument in honour of his parents, the Counts of Barcelona

Yes, he has I believe they married much, much in love. They are still in love of course but those initial years seem so tender and special.

Juanita, your pics are news for me. Thank you for them. All the members of the family changed a lot since then except Queen Sofia. She's always young!

I've just read trough the entire thread and I'm loving all the pics! I'm an avid fan of Queen Sofía and I hadn't seen many pictures of her when she was younger (aged 24-35), so naturally when I saw the ones posted here, I was over the moon. I think she's a warm, lovely woman now, but back then she was absolutely gorgeous. And the king, who I think is attractive now even on the cusp of 70 years old, was so very handsome. They were definitely a "super-couple" as far as looks go.

As for the adorable children who would grow up to be the Prince of Asturias, Duchess of Lugo and Duchess of Palma de Mallorca, they were so incredibly cute! But I swear, those old photos play tricks on my mind. When I look at them, I'm briefly fooled into thinking that I'm looking at a picture of Froilán, Miguel and Leonor with a much younger version of their grandparents!

I wish JC and Sofí had had more children so they could've passed on more of those wonderful genes and given us more pictures of attractive offspring to post here and look at, LOL. I never grow tired of looking at the kids' photos from childhood up to now. At least we have plenty of grandchildren to watch grow up!

I have a question: does anyone have any pictures of JC and Sofí together before they were married?

You're most welcome!
I like those photos, not the act itself, but the love there is between royals. I mean, in a photo the Queen is holding the hand of her mother-in-law and in other pictures of the funeral we can see the Queen with her arm around the King, crying (I don't think I posted those ones... ).

hey sis thanks for the funeral pics!

I think the pics where Jaime is and Cristina has the same hairdo as her mom aren't from Don Juan's funeral, since he died in 1993, I guess those are from a memorial service or from Doña Mercedes' funeral in 1999 (even if it's weird that Iñaki wasn't there)

I'll place them around 1996

I think you are right because Jaun Carlos was adult very very young, as if I didn't have any youth period.

For Felipe, it's the opposite, he was changing a lot - and more he had to change - because he was staying may be too long in a teen ager way of life- it's an other question whithout any link of this observation-

Since about now more or les eight years and mainly since he had decided to mary Letizia Ortiz and to have his own family, he has changed a lot, becoming a man giving the feeling of the maturity.

As very often when you have a father with a very strong personality, it's difficult for a son to find his own pattern and in this case it's not astonishing to observe that this son can be stay teen ager so long.
