Glad that Juan Carlos was able to visit his sister this morning. He is one of the frew people who will have known her well most of her life. Pilar was only 1 1/2 when her younger brother was born...

She had been ill for a while and there is a point the body simply can’t take it anymore. Some of us have experienced that with loved ones/ family members.

May she Rest In Peace and condolences to the family.

Sad news. Pilar was ill for a long time, so at least she'll be at peace now. RIP.

A very sad time for her children and grandchildren, but not unexpected, and I hope they find comfort in the presence of both the immediate and extended family.

The Infanta had a long, interesting life, and was quick and bright right through to the end of it. That's a blessing, and now she has the additional blessing of being free from pain and suffering. May she rest in peace.

Thanks for sharing this interesting obituary. I knew little about the Infanta, but she struck me as a likeable individual who had a strong personality in spite of the fact that (as she says) her gender meant that her purpose in life was to be a support to her brother. She seems to have learned a strong sense of duty to Spain from her father, but not taken herself too seriously.

I did not know that Infanta Pilar's wedding was a major event for monarchists. With the record of traditionalism in monarchist groups in Europe, it is interesting that a union which was morganatic because it was unequal according to the rules at that time was followed with enthusiasm by monarchists. That being the case, it is not surprising that the requirement to marry equally was dropped after the monarchy was restored. (The marriages of Infantas Elena and Cristina in the 1990s were morganatic, titlewise, not because they were deemed unequal, but because King Juan Carlos decided in 1987 that royal status would be restricted to direct heirs and their spouses and children.)

Nice to see so many close family and friends,the former Tsar of Bulgaria and his wife among them,Margarita was a cousin of the late Infanta Pilars husband the Viscount de la Torre.

The Infanta Margarita does not look well.

Members of the RF and public come to pay their respects to Infanta Pilars family.


As well as the extended SRF so far I've spotted Princess Beatriz of Orleans,the Duchess of Montoro,The Prince and Princess of Vidin ,the Duke of Arjona,the Marqués de San Vicente del Barco,Laura Ponte,Prince Pedro Borbon-Dos Sicilias, Prince Jaime Borbon-Dos Sicilias, Princess Cristina Borbon-Dos Sicilias all paying their respects .

The official funeral mass will be celebrated on January 29 at the Monastery of El Escorial.

The family has organized another mass on January 31 at the Almudena Cathedral.
