How lovely is this! I did not know that Princess Grace had been invited to Zarzuela Palace. Ignoramus totalus, me!

It is normal, the relation between both families always has been good. Queen Victoria Eugenia supported Grace when other Monarchies did not do it, and she was the godmother of prince Albert.

Cute pic though!

An Ard Ri, every year the SRF celebrates San Juan's day since that is the Saint the King was named for. It's called an onomástica.
