And judging from many Spanish forums, many are quite happy the SRF is staying away from a wedding that has become a marketing promotion.

I don't believe he had any intention of ever going to the wedding since his operation.

The entire story reeks of bad manners & makes the RF look bad.I hope the Palace are happy with this reflection.

I don't know anything or care about an alleged last minute phonecall from Madrid to Monaco.

Too little too late!!

I don't understand Spanish so this is the only one I visit & judging by this forum the reaction is quite mixed.

The phonecall has been mentioned in this thread more than once. Yesterday, casa real announced the King couldn't attend because of his knee and called Albert who understood the problem.

Nobody from Greece, Bulgaria or Brunei appears on the royals dossier.

Nobody disputes that, but why doesnt the King send a representative like so many other dignitaries?

"Hey Al, it's JC speaking, sorry but my knee is still bad and my family has other things to do" - sorry I don't buy that the whole issue is that easy.

We will just have to agree to disagree I guess,its nothing personal just a difference of opinions.

I don't really care if the King finally bothered to call Prince Albert II it won't change my opinion.

Ok no one from Spain & Brunei,Greece & Bulgaria are former-Monarchies.

Still a pity that there won't be a Spanish Presence.

It's probably worse sending a substitute yesterday. If until yesterday Monaco was preparing everything for the King of Spain, and today they send an infante(or even a Prince) everything has to change. In a wedding with so many guests, organization and protocol it would probably be a huge mess.

Ireland & Spain are historic allies so we won't fall out over a Princely Wedding Invite

The Infante Carlos

The King couldn't have sent any of the above in his place?
You could add Princess of Asturia to the list of royals that could (and should) attend.

King Juan Carlos is not the bad in this story, Monaco made all of this wrong not sending invitations to the Princes or the Infantas. And in my opinion there are two things that maybe were decisive and are:

1. Prince Albert spoke so bad of Madrid, and COI denied Madrid Olympics 2012 organization.

2. When the Princes of Asturias married, Prince Ernst of Hannover was drinking the nigh before to the wedding, visiting all the night clubs of Madrid and he couldn't attend because of the hangover, this man is first or second cousin of Queen Sophia. Princess Caroline and him can be separated but they are still legally married, so he is member of Monaco's Royal Family.

But this is a Royal Wedding, but is more a "Press wedding" than a Royal one.


(Sorry for my english ).

Perhaps this time he couldn't find any substitute at the last minute (even a month ago when he had the knee surgery). It seems Sofia has some other plans since she won't have an act next week. Felipe is scheduled to sail to honor his navy instructor, this time he can't come in for his father like his uncle's birthday last year and left his wife and daughters to holiday with his friends in Portugal, nobody in the family can sail for him this time. Not sure about the infantas, maybe they also said 'no' to their father since they have other plans.
The bottomline is JC should have let Felipe represent him at the wedding insteading trying to go himself.

It seems that the King or the doctors thought that recovery would be faster, this week the King was scheduled to accompany Ban Ki-moon at the opening of a United Nations center in Valencia, and now the Prince will replace him.
