How sad. My condolences to his family, especially his mother, the Dowager Duchess. Lose a child at her age, that's horrible.

Sad news but not surprising. He has had health issues for some time now, though at times he was well enough to attend public occassions such as the abdication of king Juan Carlos and the enthronement of king Felipe VI.

May he rest in peace.

El Pais writes that he never failed his cousin, king Juan Carlos. The newspaper also says that he died in his house 'La Toledana' in Retuerta del Bullaque, between Toledo and Ciudad Real.

Good that he lived so long to see his youngest grandchild.
His mother will probably follow him soon...

My condolences to the family and especially the mother. No mother deserves to watch the death of a child.

I am sad for his wife Princess Anne d' Orleans , but he was so ill.
Carlos was Infant of Spain , the last one.
His wife was never Infanta.

The second son in law of the late Count and Countess de Paris who passed away. The first one was Count Evrard de Limboug-Stirum, Princess Hélène's husband.

As Marengo said, it's a sad news but not surprising. I knew he was in frail health, but I had no idea that his condition was so grave and has been such for several years.
My condolences to his family.

I hope the Duke of Castro will attend the funeral of the late Duke of Calabria.

Infante Carlos, Duke of Calabria, will be buried on Thursday in the Pantheon of Infantes in the Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial at the wish of King Felipe VI. That day there will be a funeral mass only for the family.

Later the family will organize another mass funeral for which there is still no date.

Oh, RIP. How sad. He used to be a quite important personality at my city (I'm from Ciudad Real). I will miss seing him at the Corpus Christi Day as he used to show up every year.

On the other hand, how nice is that he will be buried at El Escorial. That is a big honour and we'll get to see a burial there after a long time, which is a great thing for me at least.

His father is also buried at the Pantheon of Infantes at El Escorial I believe.

I believe his father is also in the Pantheon de los Infantes at the Escorial, as is his paternal grandmother Mercedes, Pss of Asturias.

I suppose the last funeral at this pantheon must have been that of Infante Don Jaime de Borbon y Battenberg, Duke of Segovia. IIRC the late count and countess of Barcelona will go to the Pantheon de los Reyes?

Yes, also Infante Alfonso is buried there indeed, near to his mother Infanta Maria de las Mercedes and his brother Infante Fernando.


After the Duke of Segovia, also Infante Luis Alfonso (born Prince Ludwig Alfons of Bavaria in 1906) was buried there in 1983 and three years later also Infanta Isabel Alfonsa, Princess of the Two Sicilies and Countess Zamoyska by marriage was buried in the Pantheon of Infantes.
IIRC they are currently buried in the "pudridero".

The Count and Countess of Barcelona are currently in the "pudridero" of the Pantheon of the Kings, where they will be buried in a number of years.

I suppose that the Infanta Alicia will be burried there too. But I am not sure if his wife, Pss Anne of France, can.

Up until his death Don Carlos was the only Infante of Spain having being created one by King Juan Carlos in 1994 by royal decree,his son is not an Infante unless Felipe VI grants him that title.

Are they also in the pudridero? I thought it is only for those who are to be buried in the Pantheon of the King's.
