The Infants live each one in their own houses, one in Madrid and another one in Barcelona.
The Princes live in a house of National Patrimony within the enclosure of the Zarzuela to 1 kilometer of the Palace. The Palace of the Zarzuela was a small pavilion of hunting,and Franco installed the Princes there, was a relatively simple place. When the Princes became Kings, they decided not to change of residence. The Palace is surrounded by nature, in a wonderful place; there they could have more privacy and the children had more freedom. But the Zarzuela, although extended it is not excessively great... I believe that it is looked more like a mansion that to a great palace.

It is nice to see pics of Felipe. I just have a question to someone who lives in Madrid, isn't it cold there? it is quite amazing to see him with pants that short.

It is the uniform of the college. There are colleges that support the uniform with shorts and high socks ... before one was dressing the children this way. Though it seems to me to be strange that they do not have long trousers for the winter.

In Spain, how your you say, people do not say anything of that. These failing to fulfill the rules of this forum when creating this type of rumors, on subjects that are very serious. Infant Elena is a wonderful woman, considered by many like a good natured and likeable woman. Please, let create stupid rumors.

I have no idea where you got that idea from. I've seen and listened Infanta Doña Elena for several years and I never noticed anything.
But these kind of not-so-kind coments tend to appear from time to time regarding several members of Spanish Royal Family.

One thing I know from her - she has a heart of a world's size. When her husband, Don Jaime de Marichalar had the stroke, some people were speculating that he was unfaithful to her and that they were expecting I don't know what to fill for divorce. Anyway, when Don Jaime had the stroke she pulled all her strength and decided to recover her husband, although the doctor's prognosis were that he would be severely damaged from it. She spend all her time besides him, talking to him (although the doctors said he wouldn't listen), she decorated his room with colour ballons and huge family portraits from the happy times they spent together as fiancés, newlywed couple, with theirs sons and their families always praying and expecting that his mental skills would be incentivated to start working as soon as he open his eyes. Later doctors assumed that she was a very important part of her husband's recovery. All that initiatives she took from books she read about her husband desease, as soon as he had the stroke.

If this is from a woman with mental problems...

Regards,
mtbcm :)

I will just repeat what has been exhaustely said over and over again. Please state a credible source for affirming that someone is borderline, gay or something the like. "I heard" or "It's been said" aren't considered reliable sources of information.

The discussion of Infanta Elena's mental health ceases here and now, unless someone provides a doctor's report proving this condition.

thank you.

1.Well, it seems like she's gotten rid of the Braid, my prayers have been answered, this new looks suits her a lot better, she has great hair:)
2. Did you see the portrait that's behind her?; the genetics in that family hasn't changed much, she has the same bone structure and nose of the king in the portrait; years and years of endogamy assured that in the Borbon dynasty

I agree with the above posts, she really does look good with that hairdo. Just the other day I saw a side photo of her and I was thinking she would look so much better with some bulk (high bun or ponytail) in the back of her head instead of her hair being flat. What I love about this pony tail is that it balances out her strong facial features some. I think this is very attractive -- go for it Elena!

I thought the same thing. The ponytail is a more youthful look for her and it does balance her strong features. Perhaps she's been reading our posts??
