I believe its a lot cooler in Madrid for this years National Day at 17/18c compared to the 30C of 2011! Even at 17/18c its still 10 degrees warmer than here in Ireland!

Yes it was cool but not cool enough for Elena's fur
I thought the royals looked nice. The scene was missing Christina and Inaki but unfortunately they weren't there and I guess won't be for the coming few years maybe.

Were Elena's children attending? Don't they attend this even yearly?

So from today on, we are down to the core SRF (Kings, Princes) at State Events, Elena not taking part officially, she can either attend or stay away. For the first time she was seated with the other authorities and didnt do the reception afterwards.

Elena's fur would have been better suited here in Ireland (its currently 0c)

Elena's daughter I believe in a Catholic boarding school near London,I didn't see her son this year,he was there last year I think with some school friends?

Why was that? Any explanation given?

Was it not announced by the royal court some time ago when the issue with Christina and Inaki was raging as best in the news that the Infantas would no longer be part of the "official" royal family? Perhaps someone has a better memory but I do remember it being discussed in this thread at the time.

It was wise on Infanta Elena's part to limit her participation at such events. Spain is the economic basket-case. It is Prince's and Princess' Asturias responisbility to sell their image to Spaniards.

Infanta Elena is still a member of the official SRF with her own agenda and patronages. The only thing that has changed is a new protocol when it relates to the Royal House as Head of State. Actually and with the exception of the official acts on National Day, it's been years since Elena or Cristina have participated in other Head of State acts like State dinners, Pascua Militar, presentation of diplomatic credentials, etc. This new protocol simply clarifies Head of State official issues.

I wouldn't be surprised if next year we see the Infantas Leonor and Sofia eased into official protocol. Prince Felipe was 7 y.o. when he was introduced into royal public life - the same age Leonor will be next year.

Infanta Elena has no power of decision in this issue. This protocol has been decided by government and the royal house.

Lets please not forget that Spain is parliamentary monarchy - the power resides with the Parliament, not the Royal House.

To concentrate on the core family is the right thing to do and will be a model for other RFs in the future as well, enforced to save money if needs be.

Elena is still a member of the official SRF but her days as such are numbered anyway. As soon as Felipe is King her status will change in that respect, although she will presumably always keep her own agenda & patronages as Infanta of Spain.

'Her days are numbered'....love that

And remember Elena and her children are in the line of succession to the Spanish Throne unlike the sisters of the King and their children.

Speaking of the sisters were either of them present yesterday? I recall Pilar and her daughter were there last year,but not in the official review area.

Thanks for the Video ,
The King of Spain walked painfully. I am sure it was a hard day for him as he was standing the whole day.

I have question regarding Elena's place in succession, if this is the wrong thread please do put it in the wrong one.

When Juan Carlos passes away (May he live long), will the Infantas Cristina and Elena and their children still be in the line of succession or will they be cut away like sisters of the King?
I mean, Infatitas are still rather young and Felipe and Letizia are busy as they are. Won't they need the "work force" so to speak?
