Can anybody tell me where the Kings were at the celebrations for King Carl Gustaf's birthday? There were plenty of photographs of them on the first night but then there doesn't seem to be anymore especially at the dinner
As I understand it, the King and Queen were only present for the private (non-tiara but evening gowns) dinner on the Saturday, April 29. They returned to Spain the following day and did not attend the lunch or the gala dinner on April 30. I had read that they returned to Spain for Miguel's birthday but I'm not sure.
They were probably tired since they had such a busy week of travelling.
It's too bad since there was a very nice portrait taken of the kings and queens in attendance and Juan Carlos and Sofia would've made lovely additions.

I guess there hasn't been any official comment on King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia's attendance at King Carl Gustaf's 60th birthday celebrations?
It was very confusing since we saw them on the private party on Saturday, and I saw them at the Te Deum on Sunday (and I thought I saw JC in the window of the Royal Palace during the Defence's tribute, but perhaps that was someone else then... there was also someone who looked like Sofia on a distance, from behind the shoulder at the evening's concert), but then they were all of a sudden not there. So perhaps they flew home on Sunday after the Te Deum then?
Yes, the Kings returned to Spain after the mass. They travelled to Barcelona and had luch in house of the Dukes of Palm because it was Miguel's birthday.
Later the King surrendered to his medical annual review, it he does it in a clinic of Barcelona, probably it was programmed by time taking advantage that Monday and Tuesday was a holiday in Madrid.
