I find it insensitive too that the King's private home is open for an employee to vacation there, especially considering the role he has been playing in Noos.
It must appear to the public that Revenga almost counts like a family member in a family where no member is better than the other, protecting each other and their assets.
Apart from that, it has been a matter of discussion or critizism that even though the King owns this home in BB, the bill eg for protection of the home around the clock has to be forked out by the taxpayer. The King himself hasn't been there for ages, the home is only used by his family, benefitting from the protection, incl. Inaki not too long ago.

On the other side, wasnt the SRF once famous for being dicreet? These days they are shoving their feeling of entitlement into people's faces.
Is it a case of keep thy friends close and thy enemies closer?

Is it showing their feeling of entitlement in people's faces, or is the press just reporting every little thing about them now?

Are Felipe and Letizia there? I would not be surprised if they are not.

Ravenga was invited by Elena obviously. I don't know if JC knew or not before the pictures. Even if he knew, what could he do ? His kids are adults, made their own decisions.

The King was happy to see Ravenga at the hospital, I sure he doesn't mind him staying at his house with Elena.

Its only that the involvement with Ravenga, considering his role in Noos, and SRF family members on an almost intimate level looks suspicious.

According to the media, none of the Queen, infantas and their secretaries talked to the King the first day due to the preparation for the operation and post operation recovery. Felipe (and Letizia) arrived about 2 hours later, he talked a little with his father. I doubt JC is as clueless as Sofia and infantas who always seem to live in bubbles (not entirely their fault since nobody dared to 'scold' them maybe except for the King), there are many discreet ways he can treat Ravenga well, no need to 'laugh'/'love' together in public as if nothing had happened.
