Thanks everyone for all the great pictures! :)

I remember Cristina and Inaki's two eldest sons being in attendance at last year's parade, along with Froilan and Victoria. Were the Urdangarin boys present again this year?

But Juanito and Pablo could've gone while Miguel and Irene could've stayed home with the nanny. Last year Miguel was too young to go but his two oldest brothers went.

This year the Day of the National Holiday was a Wednesday, other years if it coincides in Tuesday or Thursday it joins in order week and the children do not have school. The Infanta Cristina lives in Barcelona, and the children would have school on Tuesday and thursaday, for what would be very heavy to travel with all.

I've seen many photos of the King and Prince kissing a lady's hand, and the the royal ladies hands are often kissed too. A lovely custom. But I was wondering if it's common for a man to kiss a lady's hand in regular Spanish society? Could our Spanish contributors inform me what is common? Or is it an old-fashioned courtesy, seen only in courtly circles or the most formal of occassions, but not commonly?

To kiss the hand of a lady is an act of courtesy, is not done habitually. The most common thing is to give the hand between gentlemen, and between ladies or a lady with a gentleman to give the hand or to give two kisses.

Does anyone knows if there is a representation of the royal family in the wedding of Cayetano Martinez de Irujo with Genoveva on Saturday?

They are two types of very different ceremonies. Eugenia's wedding was in a church of Seville, a more popular wedding, with many guests and many press. In this case, the ceremony will be more intimate, inside the Palace of the Duchess of Alba in Seville. So there will no be any more images that those who give they. Not if some member of the Royal Family will come or not to the Wedding ... but for my that do not go, I do not like Cayetano nothing is a capricious and bad-mannered child. A few months ago he criticized in a program of television the Royal Family for not supporting the equine one (that he practises, it is the only thing that he does) and to support other sports ... a senseless commentary, since the Infanta Pilar is the Chairwoman of the Federation of Equine.

Something tells me that Letizia will give birth by the end of October rather than in November.


In a few of the photos, Elena does not seem to be very friendly with Letizia. Do these two get along very well?

Elena and Letizia are good fellow sisters-in-law. They live both in Madrid and Letizia is said to visit her often. Infanta Elena just has this cold appearance in general (due to her specific physiognomy, that makes her face look always too narrowed), but she's actually known for being the most cheerful of the three children of KJC&QS, somehow more like King Juan Carlos... Still waters run deep...

I agree with you Elsa. They must be close-friends in intimacy.

I remember one formal occasion that Infanta Elena got a cough and Letizia followed her "backstage" to help her transcend her problem.
Also Letizia was seen going out to lunch with Jaime, without Felipe or Elena, and in formal occasions Letizia does demonstrate she likes her in-laws like here. This wouldn't happen if they hadn't a good relationship. I couldn't find the pic I was thinking about, but I've seen a pic in this same event where Letizia in touching Elena's arm while chatting.
Would you do that if you knew your sister-in-law didn't like you or you didn't like her? No.
And I agree with you, the expression on Elena's face (like her son, IMO) always look like she is angry, bitter, sad... :o Cristina has a more glowing face :) .

Regards,
mtbcm
