Smile What do the Spanish royal children call their parents and grandparents?

I briefly looked to see if this topic had been done before and didn't find any results. I hope I used the correct keywords...

Anyways, I've wondered for a while now, what do Elena, Cristina and Felipe call the King and Queen? I'm not too familiar with Spanish, but I know father is padre and mother is madre. However, they seem too formal of words to call ones parents.

Also, what do the Marichalar and Urdangarín children and the young infantas call their parents? What do they call their grandparents?

Thanks!

In Spain, now the children and the young people use little the words "padre" and "madre", is more common "papá" y "mamá".

Two summers ago the Queen and the Princess commented that the children were calling their grandmother "amama". But this summer to Leonor was listened to call her "Abu" (abuela = grandmother).

In family they were calling the King, Juanito, but not are called him his children in family.

Felipe Juan Froilán, has the nickname of "Pipe".
