Oh, I'm sure the King of Spain was not very amused!

Why would he not be amused? The Asturias and Infanta Elena were also present.

It's not a secret that the king of Spain does not support or like LA. So I'm sure he's not to excited his nephew invited him to be his child's godson.

French King Henri IV descendant wants to finally reunite monarch's stolen skull with his body | Mail Online

The head of French King Henri IV, which was stolen by revolutionaries more than 200 years ago, should be reunited with its body, the heir to the defunct throne of France has demanded. The monarch's descendant, Louis de Bourbon - a 37-year-old banker and the Duke of Anjou - said the ghoulish item should now be re-buried with the King Henri's body so his ancestor can rest in peace.

Henri IV was 57 years old when he was assassinated by a Catholic militant in 1610, and buried at the Saint-Denis Basilica near Paris. But his head was chopped off and stolen by looters, who ransacked the royal graves during the revolution in 1793. For more than 200 years the head was bought and sold at auctions or kept in secretive private collections. It is now owned by the Duke of Anjou, who has had it formally identified by experts as belonging to one of France's best-loved kings.

He has written to President Nicolas Sarkozy asking for it to be re-buried 'where it belongs'. He said: 'I have a duty to my royal ancestors to do the right thing by King Henri IV and return his head to his body. This is not a museum piece, it's is a human head that was stolen from its body and should now be put back there. It would also be a symbolic gesture, with Henri's body being put together respresenting the unifcation of the French people people during these times of economic trouble. Henri was a very popular king in his day and an important figure in French history, and we should show him the respect he deserves.'

President Sarkozy had not yet given any response to his request, the Duke said.

Well, Maria Margarita is so beautiful and her choice of dress+earring looked good on her, not very classic but it's nice. But her pose, hummm, makes her look like one of those trashy celebrities, not a princess at all

Is this evidence of a rapprochement between the Spanish Royal House and Luis Alfonso?

I recall Infanta Pilar was at a tennis match also with Luis Alfonso & his wife back in September.

Luis & his wife were also present at the recent christening of Pilar's newest grandchild,so there could well be a thaw!
