Thank you Blog Real! This is a nice treat! I like seeing photos Infanta Cristina's children living the life they deserve.

Hard to believe but Don Juan Valentín Urdangarín will be 20 next month.

Well done Pablo! It seems he is doing well in his handball career.

Pablo Nicolás had his first match with the HBC Nantes team this weekend, but has not been put in and supported his team from the bench instead:

Nice to see Pablo at the match. He seems to be very passionate about handball. Good for him!

Yes the past few years can't have been easy for the Urdangarín children at all.

Nevertheless, despite all those potential traumas, Juan Valentín looks like a well-rounded, fine young man who, unlike his cousin Froilán for example, keeps a low profile and stays out of trouble. He will soon finish his degree in the UK and will probably get a good job in the private sector and live a quiet, normal, private life.



In a way, it is a good thing that the restored Spanish monarchy limited membership of the Royal Family and stripped the monarch's grandchildren other than the children of the Prince or Princess of Asturias of the title of Infante/Infanta and the style of Royal Highness. Being a royal in Spain seems to be a heavier burden than in other more carefree, easygoing European monarchies.

I like occasionally hearing news about Cristina's children and I'm glad they seem to be doing well, but I'm not sure why Vanitatis needed to follow this young man around for a couple of days and publish so many photos and details about his daily life. Pablo and his siblings have no official role to play in Spain like Felipe's girls and they've never engaged in the sort of indiscreet behaviour occasionally seen with their Marichalar cousins. Right now they seem like polite young adults who want to live low key, albeit likely very privileged, lives.

I had no idea that he had moved from France where he was playing previously to Barcelona. It seems he's back to familiar grounds as this is the area he grew up in.

Nice to get a better insight; according to Vanitatis he is a bright student and passionate about the fate of the oceans (they might say that because he is studying Marine Sciences; and/or they know he was passionate, so it makes sense that he is studying Marine Sciences). In addition, he seems to be level-headed and sensible and apparently is funny.

They also state that he no longer has security (they stated that he lost it last year, so it seems related to him turning 18); of course, while he is in Geneva he will be covered by the security detail of his mother.

Did he have taxpayer-funded security in Switzerland or was it private security?


I found it strange that Infanta Cristina would have official security when she lives out of Spain and is no longer a member of the official Spanish Royal Family.

Sounds like state-funded security; which makes sense given that the Spanish royal family always had a very high level of security due to the threat ETA posed. Kidnapping or killing the sister of the king would still be considered a great 'trophy'; so if it is deemed necessary, I can see why they would take that route.

And it isn't that she herself chose to leave royal duties, she was forced to do so; nor is she courting the media to attract attention but lives a low-profile life as far as she is able to.
