I don't think she cares. She is being herself now and tough if we don't like. I would love to see her meet someone that would "help" her like Jamie did when she was married. A couple of her awful outfits remind me of her mother, Queen Sofia, silly pajama loud outfits. A new hair style, appropriate for her age and shape of face and more classic clothes plus make-up over haul......she could really shine. But, now since no longer in official capacity, single and children older and not in need of 24/7 baby-sitting, she is doing her own thing. Maybe she feels that this is the only way to get any attention now. I just wish this nice lady would pick another way and not with her taste in clothes.

She might be the King's sister but she has clearly been sidelined, so she most likely considers herself just 'another' spectator and dresses as such. I don't blame her for that. If they wanted her active participation in royal activities they should have organized that (inviting her to the reception for a start) but that is clearly not the case.

You have made a valid point. Infanta Elena is not a member of the royal family anymore. She is free to wear whatever she wants to.

On a different note ... I've given up on her choosing to wear elegant Don Jaime (as I call them) ensembles she may have in her wardrobe.

Elena is an Infanta of Spain but she's no longer a member of the royal family and one of the many benefits to that is being able to celebrate National Day however she likes. Based on the pictures I've seen she looks very happy to be there as a spectator and to be spending time with her daughter. Her fashion sense is never going to be everyone's cup of tea but that's nothing new.

Elena has come a long way and she seems happy now. She's free to do what she wants and it suits her.

Its a strange life that is ahead of Infanta Sofia too, from birth you have to function for the crown without any importance and then at some point you go back to kind of normal.

You are absolutely correct. Happens in all royal families. Charles's siblings, then Harry in England along with Fred's brother in Denmark, Victoria's siblings, etc. Depending on the family, some will welcome the change. Looks like Elena does and good for her.

A nice casual look. She looks good in red and she looks happy as she always does when she’s riding or at equestrian events.

Is Infanta wearing Elena wearing jeans? The top half is nice nothing too fussy.
