On visits, it is something cultural, in Spain is not strange if a patient receives daily visits from his family and friends, in many cases the standard is that the family take turns to accompany each day. I think the king even receives fewer visits than would be normal.
thanks lula, i thought it was him on this picture

but i can be wrong. i recognized spottorno on other pictures.

yes, it must be another culture then. in some countries i know people will avoid going to hospitals to visit unless its urgent or serious.

I would find it extremely odd if the closest family members don't visit the patient at the hospital, if he/she stays there longer than a day. In Finland it is a normal custom to visit their loved ones. But of course Cristina didn't have to make such a show of her visit, she could have arrived disreetly.

I don't think its just a normal custom in Finland...its a normal custom for anyone anywhere in the world who has a family member that they care about spending the night (heck a couple of hours) in the hospital.

And call me silly, but I don't think its ridiculous that the family is speaking about the King, his operation and his health at a press conference. Last time I checked, he is still the King right? Shouldn't the country be concerned about his health, his spirits, and his recovery?

Call me silly again, but don't we as royal watchers who joined a royal forum to discuss all things royal have an interest in this family? What they think? how they interact with each other? If we express this interest on the internet from all parts of the world...why shouldn't the people of Spain (who actually have a vested interest in this family) have the same questions? And they would want to get these answers from the family.

In regards to Cristina...she can't win with some of you guys. Why should she hide while visiting her father? He is her FATHER for goodness sake! If she had visited him without appearing in public...the same people criticizing her now would have found something else to be critical of.

Amazing.

Zonk,
Given the situation in Spain and the financial mess(the stealing of money that was to go to help the people of Spain) that it seems (from what is being reported around the world about her and her husband) that a bit of discretion on her part would have been in order. There really is no need for her to be seen in public doing anything at this time. Yes this is the royal family and even they should not be above the law of the land, there is always something said about being discreet. I am of the old school that honesty is the best policy and there seems to be a lot of dishonesty in this royal family with the exception of CPF/CPL and their family. I know that nobody is perfect yet the way that some people think that just because your royal (being born royal is just an accident of birth no more no less) your entitled to anything you want in life when in all sense of the word *royal* there should come a great sense of responsibility towards the position, and not to take advantage of that position while others suffer.

Judging by the layers of clothes it looks quite chilly in Madrid at the moment.

Its getting to be a rather common sight seeing the Spanish Royal Family visiting the King in hospital of late!

Yes, I understand the situation and Spain as well as what is going on with Cristina and her husband. And I would agree that, some sort of discretion should be used. However, let's be real.

Cristina is out and about because she is visiting her father in the hospital who just had surgery. Its not like she was was photographed at a club, or shopping in an expensive store. Those are examples to me of not showing discretion or being not being mindful of the situation.

There is a stark difference IMO.

According to El Confidencial Digital, king Juan Carlos had a cataract operation in September 2010. That has been a secret until now. The article has a photo of king Juan Carlos with the medical team who operated on him.

Cataract surgery is common among senior citizens so I'm not surprised. Thank you for the update Lady Finn.

Monarquia Confidencial writes that Zarzuela has told that king Juan Carlos will use the cane for the rest of his life.
