Very sad News but no too unexpected given her recent healthproblems. Hope she had not to suffer for too long.


Wonder if she will be buried in the Escorial or next to her late husband.

Over the past day Infanta Pilar had visits from Queen Sofia ,Don Carlos Zurita and his daughter Doña Maria Zurita as well as Infanta Pilars children and grandchildren,I'm not sure if the Infanta Margrita was well enough to have paid her sister a visit.

Infanta Pilar will not be buried in El Escorial. She will be cremated and the ashes deposited in the Pantheon of the Gomez Acebo family in the cemetery of San Isidro, where her husband is buried. All acts will be in privacy and later there will be an official funeral in El Escorial.

I'm very sad to hear this news and had hopes that the Infanta would recover from her ill health in recent years. She was a vibrant and vivacious woman, who was happy to speak openly, honestly and plainly with the press.

May she rest in peace.

Sad news for my lunch hour. Pilar was a lovely vibrant woman. I know she had been ill but her death seemed quick.

Condolences to her kids and the rest of the family. JC looks devastated.

Fitting that she buried with her late husband.

glad to know that she went without pain and quickly after battling a not long battle with cancer.

it looks like JC went to visit her today, probably hours before her death. he probably knew the death was imminent.
