This photo is really moving-Infanta Elena taking care of her father :flowers:

adelaide 11-19-2006 12:27 PM

I knew some of this photo but not quiet all.

I didn't remember how sad was the King. To see this man crying is something very moving.

The Queen is also totally sad. For all, it's obvious that tha death of the Queen Maria de Las Mercedes is absolutly a great sorrow.

I believe Queen Beatrix was the only reigning Sovereign (outside Spain) to attend the funeral of the Countess:

For reigning sovereign by himself, may be, but what do you think of the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg who was on the same rank that of the Queen Beatrix one . I agree it's the wife of the reigning Grand Duke but we can consider it's the same thing.

We know that never the Queen ElisabethII is going to a such event, are you sure that none of the other european reigning sovereign didn't be here?

That is not the same. Sending Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte de Luxembourg, may she rest in peace, is the same as Queen Elizabeth II sending Prince Philip.

I already do not remember it, and we have few photos, so it is difficult to know it:wacko: . It is supposed that the normal thing for protocol is that to a funeral there goes a person of equal range. Then every Monarchy will have decided whom sends.

The Queen Beatrix decided to go she, probably also for her friendship with the King Juan Carlos. By Luxembourg went the Great Duchess. And by Jordan and Belgium the two queens "widows". Great Britain and Monaco to the heirs, and Morocco to the brother of the King.

This news clarifies it a bit

http://www.terra.es/actualidad/artic...ml/act3573.htm
"Between the guests to the funereal ceremony there appear the Queens of Belgium and of the Netherlands, the Prince of Wales, the Princesses of Sweden and Denmark and the Princes Inheritors of Monaco, Norway, Jordan, Morocco and Nepal."

I found more photos
