What did the individuals who tried to kill Charles Hugo and his wife Irene hope to accomplish by killing them. It's interesting that they tried to do this after Franco died. I don't think they would have attempted this when he was alive. What would they gain from it? Or what did they hope to gain from it. This really isn't clear. A Carlist was not about to become the next political leader of Spain or take over the country. Perhaps they tried to take advantage of a government which was still evolving. If this was their motive in trying to kill him, it didn't work.

According to Princess Irene (on dutch tv), prince Sixtus was actually one of the people trying to shoot them. No idea about what they were aiming to do, in case of Carlos Hugo's death it is very unlikely that his sons would have been raised by the Parma's. And I can't imagine the Dutch RF having much time to teach them about carlism...

Oddly enough prince Sixtus, who claims to bea catholic, now says that the death of the brother he tried to kill saddens him, I suppose that is some improvement .

....and for Sixtus it's a little improvement that's too late.

To be honest, when I read the statement of Sixte Henri, where he told that the death of his brother saddens him, but also asking his nephews if they are finally ready to disown their father's acts and ideals, I had the impression that the sentence about his sadness was put there just because he couldn't avoid it, not to appear as very very tacky and tactless.
Maybe he is really sorry (and it would be an improvement indeed) but imo he should say it in first instance, not just after mentioning Carlos Hugo's "nefanda defección" and after praying God to forgive Carlos Hugo.

Absolutely, how true!
