To me it looks like princess Irene of Greece and Denmark is also present, she seems to be the woman seated next to (her niece) infanta Elena - but as she is pictured from the back, I am not completely sure (and given that Elena is attending in her MAPFRE-role it doesn't make much sense.

That’s a gentleman on the photo, not Princess Irene. You can also see that during the video posted above. In addition to that Princess Irene always arrives together with Queen Sofia, but the video shows she did not this time, so I‘m pretty sure she did not attend

I didn't see Princess Irene in any of the photos as said before the Princess would always arrive with queen Sofia.

King Juan Carlos enjoys a few days in the company of his family in Abu Dhabi.
In the photo is King Juan Carlos with Infanta Elena and Victoria de Marichalar and Infanta Cristina with their four children: Irene, Pablo, Juan Valentim and Miguel Urdangarin.

In both photos it seems as if Juan and Miguel would like to hit the photographer if they ask any unwelcome questions! Very stern!

Doña Irene is almost as tall as her mother The Infanta Cristina!

I agree. The expressions on all the faces don't seem to match the event (or each other). Elena, Victoria, and Pablo seem happy. Cristina looks like she's trying to seem happy. The other two boys look almost angry.

King Juan Carlos looks he just woke up from a nap.

Irene reminds me of Beatrice Borromeo.

Is that the first time Elena's and Cristina's children have seen their grandfather since he left Spain? I wonder why Felipe Froilán was not present either.

I am afraid Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia may not be given a similar opportunity unless King Juan Carlos is dying (or something along those lines).

Yes, I also think that Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia will only see their grandfather under these circumstances, or if he returns to Spain.

Do Leonor and Sofia talk to Juan Carlos by phone or internet? at least they should talk sometimes I think.

But I think King Felipe VI is always in contact with his father.

Juan Carlos and Felipe have often looked very stern in posed photographs, and it seems Juan and Miguel have the same habit. I’m surprised Pablo and Miguel have grown to be essentially as tall as Juan, given that he was much taller than his brothers even just a couple of years ago.

Irene is very pretty and I like how she’s accessorized with the eye catching earrings and simple bracelet and necklace. Her dress looks very similar to one that her cousin Sofia wore not too long ago.

Victoria clearly adores her grandfather!

First photos of King Juan Carlos returning to Spain.
The King Juan Carlos has just landed at the Vigo airport, where his daughter the Infanta Elena was waiting for him at the foot of the runway.

Were there any public protests by republican groups against the King Emeritus?


King Juan Carlos doesn't seem much concerned about the civil lawsuit against him in the UK, which surprises me.

Wish we'd seen more of this side of King Juan Carlos in the past. The photos of Don Pablo Urdangarin with his grandfather are lovely.
