It's unbelievable that no one in the royal family has said (in public, calls to politicians don't matter at all) anything about the Galician train accident that took so many lives.

This is not the kind of attitude we want to have in our royal family, the attitude is absolutely inexcusable under any point of view.

They can't cancel their holidays for this? no, they will do it once the public outrage has reached a higher point, but they should have been the first to be there.

Where is the 11M attitude?

I hope this doesn't sound like bashing but I'm really angry about this, what's the use for a Royal Family if they can't be there when we need them the most?

There are officials who are working on the case and I am sure informing the royal family and higher people. Moreover, Im sure the royal family will come out with a statement or tour the crash place when it's the right time.

Yeah, just like Rajoy and his "I am so sorry but I can't go right now", the Royal Family was far much more proactive in the 11M and the people thanked that.

And in the link above it's about Feijoo and what he said about what the King said, not direct words from the Royal Palace, would it have killed them to write a note? that doesn't really need time to think.

They should have immediately canceled their holidays, even if it was going back to Madrid, people don't want to see them in Palma right now.

Once again I'm sorry but I'm really angry about this attitude, from both the Royal Family and the Government, if you heard the word in the street and in social networks, people feel really let down, we feel as if we were abandoned in a way.

The king and the prince of Asturias have cancelled their activities from today due to the train accident. The prince was going to visit Telefónica in Madrid.
In the afternoon, the King was to receive an audience at Zarzuela Palace, tenor Placido Domingo.

The queen is on vacation and possibly infanta Elena, not the others. Both the prince and princess of Asturias have work duties scheduled for tomorrow and Saturday.

Leidi, your attitude and your words are totally disrespectful to the current situation, and demonstrate that you write without being informed.

The only member of the Royal Family has started her holiday is Queen Sofia, both the king and the Prince and Princess of Asturias continue their agenda and have events planned. Acts that today have been canceled by the tragedy.

Since last night all the media and the president of Galicia in various communications have said that the king and the prince have been in contact with the authorities.

Ladyfinn, has put several reports about it.

In any tragedy comes first assist victims and their families. All media should be directed to that function, and only direct authorities with responsibility for crisis cabinet should be in place. The transfer of authorities from Madrid, subtract resources where they are really necessary and only hinder urgent work. In a collapse, you can not generate more collapse.

Unfortunately the day will be long and so will the coming days ... and all authorities will show their support for the victims as they always have.

Its a good decision that the King will travel and that Sofia will be by his side, interrupting her Mallorca stay.

Considering that the recovery of victims and the presence of investigators has been ongoing I can understand why the Spanish royals and othes have not gone to the site yet. They understand that their presence immediately after the tragedy does not help the workers with their tasks. Delaying the trip until the sad work is completed is entirely prudent.

Yes it is indeed Duke.

The Pope has also offered his prayers for the victims

Their Majesties have visited the Clinical Hospital of Santiago.
