And the portrait of the Kings mother looking down on them!

It was also really nice to see Doña Simoneta Gómez-Acebo and her brother Don Fernando present.

So this is a private event now? Too bad because an event like this deserves the official support of the SRF.

All sports events, whenever Spanish sport is supported by casareal it's official, see football games etc.

But now that JC is considered a privatier it's not listed any longer.

She will go to a private university that her grandparents will pay, she needs to pass the baccalaureate although I do not think she will take the university entrance exams.
Do Spanish students have to take separate university entrance exams in addition to the baccalaureate ?

Yes, they have to pass a test called EBAU. The last baccalaureate course is 60% of the note, and the test 40%. Each university degree in the public university has an access note, so depending on what one wants to study, it is necessary not only to approve, but to reach a note.

Queen Letizia always seems very comfortable and at ease with the Infanta Margarita and her husband.

I hope to see more of Infanta Elena in the coming days. Since her father already retired, it's up for the King and Queen and Queen Sofia to represent Spain. I hope Elena's kids will join the club too. It's nice seeing Felipe and Victoria with their mom recently.

As I understand it, the Spanish constitution limits the number of the official representatives of the royal family to the monarch/consort and their children. (Spanish TRF members please correct me if I am mistaken.) When Juan Carlos' reign ended so did Elena's participation as an official member. Juan Carlos' sisters were no longer official representatives when, Juan Carlos' reign began though were present at some events especially family ones.

Not exactly the Constitution, but a law that determines who is part of the Royal Family and who is not.

The presence of Elena in this event is due to the fact that she works for the Mapfre Foundation. I think it's inappropriate for Sofía to promote the company where her daughter works,more when it is known that Elena got that job because of the influence of her parents, because she had never worked in that area before.

We don't have a separate thread for the Kings family so its easier to keep such events under the broad umbrella of the SRF Thread as we do in the Swedish and other forums.

The Mapfre Foundation pours a huge amount of money into various projects in Spain and abroad. It would be odd for the royal family to avoid it entirely because their daughter works there.

And certainly Felipe is fine with participating in the Copa del Rey MAPFRE which is bankrolled by the same company that established the foundation.

Elena, Cristina and Felipe all got their jobs because of who their father is. It seems strange to be concerned about nepotism on a board dedicated to hereditary monarchy.
