Either haven't or then his advisor is not very good on their job. Not first time when JCI has done something questionable. Meeting man who is practically international pariah is not very good idea. I don't like bullfight but I can somehow understand ex-king going watch something which is part of Spanish culture.

JC met the Saudi CP at the Abu Dhabi F1 race last November. JC usually goes where the money goes, what has helped stabilizing Spain during the past 40 or so years. Besides, I don't know of any royal/manager/politican who treats the Saudis like pariahs, of course its not politically correct to be seen with him but at the end of the day its business and money, and JC couldn't care less at this stage what people think about him.

Regarding the bullfighting, JC has always been a supporter, so is his daughter Elena and her children. He went as King and he still goes in his private time.

By the way, Felipe still attends bullfighting as King, he does not go in his private time.
Sofia is known to boycott the bullfights (it's not her tradition anyway since she is not Spanish), Letizia went with Felipe in the beginning a few times but stopped going.

King Juan Carlos, Infanta Elena with Victoria and Felipe tonight at the Presentation act of San Isidro's Fair 2019, in Madrid. Infanta Elena has collected an award for her love of bullfighting.

He has undergone a small intervention to remove a spot on his face and that has caused the bruise

Fan Juan Carlos watching his grandson
https://www.bild.de/sport/mehr-sport...6344.bild.html

The article says that JC came in a private jet with Sofia, Elena & Cristina and Inaki's mother.

Another article with a picture of JC, Sofia & Cristina, all very proud:

It's lovely to see everyone, including Juan Carlos (though I can't help but wonder that if he can attend events like this he can come to official engagements like the Easter service ), turn up to support Pablo in his match.

With all the games that there are in the year, Juan Carlos and Sofia have decided to leave Spain this weekend ... they really live in a parallel world where the important thing is themselves.

Juan Carlos may have had his fill of Easter services after last year.

In any event, it’s nice to see him interacting publicly with Cristina’s children, (well past time, I think).. I saw an article today with pictures of him being quite naturally affectionate with both Pablo and Irene so it seems he’s maintained a good relationship with them in private, at least.
