May 14th is a brigde day in Spain. According to this article, a new stamp with the Kings on it had been planned but is now put on hold. I seriously doubt there were plans to celebrate the wedding anniversary a la nordic countries or even toned down in the first place. When JC turned 70, he had to be urged to do a public celebration which in the end was very low key, not involving other royals. The SRF prefers to do the lavish stuff behind closed doors and live austerity in public

I think seeing Sofia so angry in sad in public such as last week at the Royal Guards Ceremony has nothing to do with the scandals around JC (the marriage will have been an arrangement for decades) but with the fact that it has finally sunk in that Inaki is guilty and the impact on the family.

I think the Queen looked more 'tired' than angry,again that's my interpretation.

On May 15th there is a public holiday in Madrid (not in Spain) so people may take off May 14th in order to have a very long weekend. It doesnt mean there is no event, but public life will go a bit slower on May 14th.

May 15th is Feast Day of San Isidro,the Patron saint of both Madrid and also Agriculture.

Cheers, Duke. We, Irish, have these bridge days too. We just didn't know what to call them ..... until now. !

Kind of odd group of pictures don't you think? There's no theme to them. But like you said at least it's something.

I like them,they seem to have no real theme but in lieu of all the other non events at least they did something.

Personally I'd have liked to have seen at least a new stamp

50 photos have been distributed, one for each year of marriage, each photo represents the most significant official or family event of that year.

Given all the problems on both state and personal levels, it is understandable that the Spanish royals are not planning to hold celebrations. It is sad though that the milestone such as the Golden Wedding would not be celebrated.

Do you think they will attend the funeral of Christina's father-in-law?

Inaki's father was not responsible for his son's alleged dirty affairs, so why not? They had contact with each other, I suppose.

Its the first time an in-law has died. Jaime's father had already died at the time of the marriage. The Kings attended the funeral of Letizia's sister when she committed suicide but they stayed away (sent a wreath instead) when two of her grandparents died. I am sure at least Queen Sofia will go, JC can be excused because of his hip.

The information is in the appropriate forum. Queen Sofia and Infanta Elena will attend the funeral chapel in Vitoria.
