Thanks HM QEII and Isabella

Have you met any Royals yourself. HMQEII did you meet Prince Frederik and Princess Mary when they went to Australia? Isabella have you met any members of the Spanish Royal family?

I'm afraid so.:(
I live in the Canary Islands, where Alexia of Greece lives. In addition, the Princes of Asturias came to my island last year, but I've never been so lucky. Anyway, I keep the hope because... who knows? Maybe one day I just get the chance.

Special celebrations in the thirty anniversary of the enthronement of Don Juan Carlos by desire of Moncloa

The commemoration of the thirtieth anniversary of the arrival of Don Juan Carlos to the throne will not happen inadvertent but that, on the contrary, will be an outstanding official celebration. According to Moncloa has known to the Confidential Digitalis, has been specially interested in that thus it is.




In agreement with the sources consulted by ECD, the possibility of organizing some celebration it was checked discreetly from the Zarzuela and one was with one cold welcome on the part of the Congress of the Deputies and their president, Manuel Marín.



Before that situation, one thought not to raise plus the subject, but he was then when the Moncloa took part, that was added immediately and with great interest to the idea, offering all its collaboration and initiative. Behind that disposition he is the president of the Government, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

Considering that the anniversary is fulfilled next the 22 of November, preliminary contacts between Zarzuela and Moncloa have taken place, to be advancing in the calendar, at the moment still very in phase of rough draft. But what is clear it is the will of the Government of not letting pass this occasion to recognize the paper of the monarch in these thirty years of the history of Spain.

The king asks for the "extreme nationalisms" all the politicians to whom he receives



The king is worried - there is it been all these years and it now seems that a little by the implantation of the "extreme nationalisms" and its every time greater right to exercice civil rights and influences more in our country. And it it has returned to put of relief these last weeks, with the politicians with whom it has been met.



They tell him more to the Informer who Don Juan Carlos interrogates, to all the politicians who receives, by the formation political nationalistic radicalized, whose activity and positions can have consequences in the configuration of the State.



It did it, for example, in the last offices with the president of the Government. The king asked Rodriguez Zapatero for the possible pacts of the Socialists with the Basque Nationalistic Party (after knowing the approach the PSOE the PNV), and also for the situation and present expositions of Republican Esquerra of Catalonia, partner of the tripartite one. The same it made Don Juan Carlos in the hearing to Emilio Perez Touriño in Palm, with occasion of to be chosen president of the Xunta of Galicia. One was interested in how it is and as it thinks the Galician Nationalistic Block, as well as - by supposed by the pacts of government signed with them by the PSdeG and its consequences.

From Canarias 7:

The King will inaugurate the new school year in Fuerteventura (Canary Islands)

The official act of the state-wide opening will take place in the IES of Majada Marcial on the 19th


C.J. Palacios

Puerto del Rosario (Fuerteventura)


The Institute of Secondary Education Majada Marcial, in Puerto del Rosario will receive next 19th the act of inauguration of the 2005-2006 school year. While they wait the royal visit, a lot of workers labour to conclude the works of two new centres in time. The Institute of Secondary Education Navarro Artiles of Puerto del Rosario has been chosen by the Department of Education and Science for the official act of opening of the 2004-2005 school year, which will be celebrated next September 19.
The decision has been confirmed by the insular delegate of Education of the Government of Canaries, Luis Gonzalez, who has advanced to CANARIAS7 the presence in the act of the president of the regional Executive, Adam Martin and of the minister Maria Jesus San Segundo.

Without an official confirmation for safety reasons, sources of the Council of Education guarantee the presence of the King of Spain in the act. The inaugurations of both previous years, celebrated in Caceres and Corunna, were presided by Don Juan Carlos, whereas Infanta Cristina attended, this time in Burgos, on 2002.

I have to say that, as a Canary Islander, I'm very happy with this new.:)

Benedicto XVI receives the Kings of Spain in Castel Gandolfo
Benedicto XVI received today in hearing the Kings of Spain, a meeting of private character, according to the Holy Headquarters, which took place in Castel Gandolfo, summer residence of the dads from the XVIIth century.
Before returning to Spain, at 12.20 hours (10.20 GMT), the Kings spoke with the journalists and said to them that their meeting with Benedicto XVI had been very cordial.
Don Juan Carlos emphasized the ' opened, nice and alive) ' character of the Pontiff, whereas Dona Sofía indicated that private room is mas that his predecessor, Juan Paul II, but that makes a great sense of the humor.
The Kings came to the Palace Pontificio minutes before 11.00 hours (09.00 GMT), after travelling to Rome in a plane of the Air Spanish Forces, which landed in Ciampino's airport.
The meeting that the Kings and the Pope celebrated in solitarily in the papal library lasted little more than half an hour and the conversation passed at all time in Italian, though the Queen I interchange with Benedicto XVI a few brief words in German.
