Spain's Crown Prince Felipe, his wife Princess Letizia, Inaki Urdangarin and Infanta Cristina stand as Civil Guard officers carry the coffin of one of their two fellow officers, who were killed yesterday in a car bomb blast, after their state funeral service in Palma de Mallorca July 31, 2009. Two Civil Guards died in the blast in what authorities called the second major attack by the Basque separatist group ETA in two days

It is frightening . The worst thing about terrorists is that they can attack anytime and everywhere.

I hope not, I admire the Borbóns .

I loved seeing the photo of Felipe and Letizia comforting the families of the victims. This is a truly horrific tragedy, and I am glad to see the royal family taking part in honoring the innocent victims.

Lucky that Their Majesties were away on official business. It is nice to see that the royals are there when their people need them.

I'm sorry, I don't understand your question, if I understood right, I guess they are accessible to the public, and for me that's really nice, from them to show their people they "care" about important things like those attacks. If I didn't understand, would you explain it better for me??

I was asking if the recent terrorist attack would curtail how accessible the Spanish RF are with the public .Would there be an increase in security or would the RF become less accessible to the general public in light of what has happened ?

The ETA threat has been around for decades. The recent attack might result in an increase of security certainly but they won't and can't reduce their public appearances. Monarchy is about to show that you are there for your people, especially in difficult times, in Spain more than anywhere else. Because the Spanish monarchy is less settled than others their strategy is a lot based on trying to make themselves indispensable by getting involved in as many events as possible what will need to be kept up, even more in times of terroristic acts within the country.

Thank you!

I'm sure they will increase their body guards and staff, and I agree with Duke of Marmalade, they can't reduce their agenda because of those attacks they've been there for a long time; also I believe they are one of the closest royal families with their people, if that happens would be a shame

That's what endears me so much about the Spanish Royal Family
