The logic or reasoning behind the different pictures makes sense.

I'm curious though as to what picture features for 2012. ?

Ideally, it should, IMO, have depicted Sofia and Juan Carlos, the significant event being .... 50 years of marriage.

Apparently Corinna has relocated to Monaco and given up on her life in Spain. But imo this doesnt mean Corinna has given up on the King, its just to take the heat off Corinna & her children ... I am pretty sure there will be a lot of air traffic between Madrid & Monte Carlo

Any guesses will be accurate in this messy situation. I just wonder what Princess Corinna hoped/hopes to gain from the situation. Spain is said to be an economic basket case. I doubt King Juan Carlos will be able to provide her with a lavish lifestyle.

I doubt JC will provide Corinna with a lavish lifestyle. Even without him, she has been very well connected within aristocratic circles. Corinna is not stupid, I doubt her aim is or was to replace Sofia.
It is unfortunate that all this became public, but given the arrangement over decades between King and Queen, separated in private but a team for Spain, nobody is really surprised, I believe people are more angry that the King splashed money in this situation or about his insensitive move to shoot an elephant rather than he is travelling with a compagnion, I dont see any anger directed towards Corinna, people are rather curious.

My guess is he will not be attending the Monte Carlo boat show this year, as he has occassionally in the past.

Has Sofia's name ever been linked with anyone. ?

I've never heard of any. Its not something that would be a characteristic of an old school royal like Sofia, it has been common practice or "normal" that the men have mistresses and the women grin & bear it, hold the family together. Exactly Sofia's role.

Apparently there was a lunch on the occasion of the golden wedding anniversary with close family (minus Inaki, who is still in Vitoria).

I would expect nothing less of that lovely lady. Thanks, Duke.

I am delighted to hear that. It had saddened me that such a huge milestone would have gone unmarked.

It makes sense to have a quiet family gathering. The photo with Mr. Gorbachev and 41st US President is the odd one.

A familiar meeting always makes sense. And mas with the children and the grandsons. And more if they are fulfilled 50 years of life shared with shades and with lights. Articles in my blog

I think, this is the most suitable "solution" for this situation. A bigger celebration after all incidents during the past weeks would have been complete nonsense. But: Doing "nothing at all" on the contrary would have been a shame as well.... so this is a salomonic decision having a small family gathering.

Well, not sure, how the "mood" really was at this lunch....

Bye Bine

Finally the Queen Sofia will not attend the celebrations of the Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth.The Spanish government has so asked and the Queen has canceled the trip. Clearly the cause is Gibraltar.

At first the trip was to take place even though the Spanish government had protested because of the travel of Wessex next month.

But in recent months there have been serious problems between Spain and Gibraltar on territorial waters. Yesterday negotiations between the Spanish fishermen and Government of Gibraltar broke, and this has led to request the cancellation of the trip.

A bit of background on the issue. Its a shame that Sofia will be missing out on honoring the great monarch of our times for political reasons.
