That's the first thing I thought when I saw that photo as well.. I guess his recent behavior isn't sitting well with the Royal Family.. I'm sure this just widens the rift between the too sides.
So did Jaime also flip when he saw the pictures of Felipe chatting with Castro in Paraguay?

The Dukes of Lugo presided over the delivery of trophies of the equestrian match Infant Elena who from the past day 13 disputed itself in the club of Are Molina. Once concluída the test, the Infant gave some of the trophies to the riders and winning horses. She, more smiling, although something nervous before the presence of means. He, distant, distrustful, and sometimes opposed before the insistence of photographers and journalists.
The Duchess of Lugo, that arrived at the island Thursday the past, next to its husband, Jaime de Marichalar, and her two children, Victory Federica and Froilán, made therefore one of the first public appearances after the abortion that underwent the 25 of June in Madrid. After losing to that third son had been his, Infant and Jaime de Marichalar returned to New York, where the Duke of Lugo recovers of the cerebral spill that suffered at the end of year 2001.
Finally with the arrival of the Dukes to the island the list of members of the Royal Family is completed that spend the summer in Majorca.

After interrupting its vacations again, now reincorpora next to all the Royal Family. On the other hand Infant Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarín, Dukes of Palm, returned to Majorca after spending days in the Pyrenean one next to their three children, Juan, Pablo and Miguel.
Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía missed to Victory Federica and Froilán. Now they are enchanted of which the five grandsons are together again. It is possible to be seen in addition Don Juan Carlos and Doña them Sofía, indicates sources next to the Palace of Marivent, very affectionate with Infant Elena. Nevertheless a certain coldness, contained is observed and disguised of the King with the Duke of Lugo, they reiterate these sources. In Palm one makes sure that something is had broken in chemistry between father-in-law and son-in-law although by both parts keeps the forms scrupulously. But who know the Duke well they indicate in addition that it has gone forced too marine Palm again whose atmosphere seems to him distinguished little and.
But Jaime de Maricharlar, after a year of familiar tensions that has not been able to hide, knows that in the next days he is going to confront a hard examination on the part of means, more and more implacable with him before his rudeness, distrusts and sometimes elementary lack of courtesy.
