Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands plus King Albert II and Queen Paola of the Belgians have had rocky moments in their long marriages. Both marriages have been on the verge of collapsing. But at advanced age the couples have re-found each other.

I think the same is true for Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía. In their long and unbelievably eventful life (Sofía's brother lost a throne, Sofía's husband won a throne) they have experienced highs and lows. I assume in the end they have re-found appreciation for each other.

It is wonderful to see Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía again. It looks like they have never been away. :)

Isn't there a connection between the Spanish RF and the Basilica of Santa María?

The Spanish Royal Family is linked to the basilica for centuries and made numerous donations, the Spanish monarchs are honorary proto-canon of the Liberian Cabildo of the Basilica, and Juan Carlos accepted that position in 1977.

The company that has sponsored the lighting is Spanish and Italian.
