Almost as rare a sighting as Cristina is the presence of 95 year old aunt in law of the King Infanta Alicia,Dowager Duchess of Calabria!

I am not an expert in canon law, Elena receiving the sacrament of Eucharist as a divorcee who got married in church? Probably because she has not remarried or does not have a live-in relationship?

While the Church would consider her still married to Jaimie, since her marriage has not be annuled, Elena has not gone ahead and had a second civil marriage nor is she known to be openly living in sin with another partner so she is still in the churchs good graces.

You are right, Duke. One can receive the sacrament of Eucharist also as a divorcee, as long as one is not "living in sin" i.e. re-married or has a partner.

I wonder what was the general atmosphere like at the Anniversary Mass today,from some of the family photo's Infanta Pilar and Princess Letizia did not look too happy.

Then again it may have just been the photo's I looked at and all was well at the Capilla Real

I think I spotted some of the King's nieces and nephews in the back rows,I wonder if any of Infante Carlos's sisters and children were present?

Not happy, but normal. The occasion is a celebration of life, JC's father was born 100 years ago.

The core family members look utterly miserable, I doubt it has to do with this occasion but with what is going on within the family.

In a video I saw at least the Duke of Noto and his wife, and his son in law Pedro Lopez-Quesada.

The body language between JC and Sofia is almost painful to watch.

Nice that infanta Alica and the duke of Calabria attended.

Yes I noticed that too but Letizia in particular didn't look very happy,nor did Infanta Pilar .Elena and Cristina and Don Felipe looked the most relaxed.

Pity that the Infantas Leonor and Sofia didn't attend,they might have cheered everyone else up!

¿Por qué no fue la infanta Leonor a la misa de don Juan?

Vanititis complains about the Infantitas' absence too and of course they have their own theories (Letizia didn't want them there because of the tensions) The excuse was school but its almost over and Froilan was there too.

For dynastic reasons, so they say, it would have been good to show up with the chain of heirs, Don Juan, JC, Felipe, Leonor but who knows. I guess if JC had wanted Leonor to show up, she would have shown up. He probably didn't care.

Maybe its a good idea to keep the girls out of what they cannot fully understand at this stage (family quarrels) and keep them from events where they would be subject to booing and harrassing (not this one but still).

They all look horrible with faces of thunder and its obvious that the core family couldn't almost bare to be in one room together.

My Spanish is not great but from the Vanititis article I gather that Letizia did not take Holy Communion at the Mass?

It seems that the only thing Vanitatis can do is invent things to attack Letizia, is their way to survive.

If they had taken the girls, they would have attacked Letizia to make the girls lost school. The school does not end until June 25. If they wanted the children were there, the act would have been in the afternoon.

I don't really look or follow Vanitatis Lula but they do seem to have an agenda against Letizia,I wonder why they have it in for her?
