will the Spanish be holding a large memorial for the dead? Like they did after the Madrid train bombings?

We still don´t know.
You´ll see, the majority of the corps are still without indentify, only 49 of 153 are indentify. So the rest of the families are waiting for DNA probes.

This thread is about the air disaster,in case you haven't noticed the difference between 153 dead & others severely wounded and a nose.


Lucien, I take it as an offence. I know exactly what's happening in the world. When the moderators created this thread I had already posted my comment in another thread.

translation of the words of prince Felipe… I hope that it is a correct translation
"Spain is really in mourning and is a very difficult day for all, the people who live they themselves are undergoing much and we want to be here today with them. we have come to visit many of the wounded people who are in different hospitals from Madrid, to speak with their relatives… we we mean to support them our, our hug and to them that they have the confidence who well are taken care of… we have visited the wounded who the doctors let see… some to us of the families are glad so that their relatives are well but others are sad so that their relatives are very serious."

more or less, the princess says:
Robert, the boy is called Robert and her mother has a great anger so that her daughter has died but she must take care of of the boy who is alive, she is very strong

The RF who would not go out to comfort and share the grief with their people deserved to be made redundant on the spot.

Unfortunately the British Royals never show face when there is a disaster or tragedy.

Of course they do and your statement is completely unfounded. In the days of 7/7 most members of the BRF, including HM, had events in relation to the London Bombings. The BRF has a history of showing solidarity with their people, with the monarch couple staying in London during WW II giving only one of many examples.

I also thank you for your translation fanprincipesasturi. It certainly shows the kindness of the Royal Family and their compassion. I just watched a news cast on the Spanish TV station and The King and Queen were entering a large building. The King was obvious concerned about the state of the Queen's emotion and kept talking to her quietly as they walked. At one point he even touched her shoulder in support and he had such a loving look on his face. Gave me quite a new impression on their relationship.

This is a tragedy, :(
A realy sad day for Spain

Did they visit the families of the children killed in Dunblane? No! Did they visit the people who lost everything in the floods in England last year, or in Scotland and Northern Ireland this year? No! Did they Visit the injured of the London bombings or the families of the dead? Again no!
As for them stayng in London during the war, that was nothing but a media lie to make Londoners think that the King and Queen were stading shoulder to shoulder with them. Documents released under the Freedom of Information Act show thay they were only in London during the day and were taken out of the city every evening. When the palace was bombed they were safely out of town but were taken back very early in the morning to make it look as if they had been there when the building was hit.

my heartfelt sympathy to the Spanish people, this is so tragic and saddness is felt all over the world. I can't imagine the deep grief and pain all of the families are feeling. I admire and respect the Spanish Royal Family for their words and support. There is nothing they can really say or do to make it better.....just love and comfort and a sharing of tears. God Bless

She was there for the injured people, I guess she probably did't even have the time to think about the death of her sister. She said that she was very touched by the courage of a mother, whose daughter died, son injured, and her determination to recover quickly to take care of her injured boy. Most of the injured ones were very sad since they lost their loved ones. Those victims were simply at the wrong place, it could happen to anyone on a commerical flight. The royal family (maybe except for the King) also take commercial flights for their private outings.
They also went to visit Prince Kardam, who is at the same hospital.
