Not all royals are monarchs

Pretty sure they were in attendance because Felipe is their nephew.

But it doesn't preclude the attendance of Crown Princes. The Prince of Wales attended the inaugurations of both Queen Beatrix and King Willem-Alexander.

The point is that Casa Real simply didn't invite any foreign royal to the investiture. I suppose Constantine attended as a family member, being the King's uncle.

However, Prince Albert of Monaco attended the inauguration of king Willem-Alexander (the most recent inauguration that was intended by many foreign royals). Two monarchs send their wives (Qatar & Morocco) and most other countries the heir and spouse or another high ranking family member.

Princess Marie-Chantal does not like Queen Letizia of Spain. Does she like Princess Mary of Denmark?

Well enough to present Mary with an extremely (as in embarrassingly!) expensive handbag for her 40th B-day.
And I believe Mary's children have been seen wearing Marie-Chantal's designs on several occasions.

In this video (towards the end), you will hear Marie-Chantal speak admirably about Mary.

Didn't Queen Margrethe use to have a "big" family Christmas with all her sisters and their families every few years? I'm sure they attended a few and they seem to pop up at Danish royal events, birthday galas etc. I would be surprised if they didn't make some private visits there as well.

Yes they do pop up at at all the major Danish RF events and celebrations more than I can say for Spain.

I can't see Crown Princess Marie-Chantal sharing a photo of Queen Letizia on Instagram

Yes, they come for family events. And are on occasion seen on private visits.
But the connections goes back to the childhood where the Danish and Greek cousins met as children every year in Denmark and as such developed a bond.

On the other hand, at least Mary (and we must assume Frederik as well) seems to have developed a good friendship with certainly King Felipe. Mary has visited the Spanish CP-couple (when they were the CP-couple that is) privately. - I don't recall having seen Mary in what can be called "a friendship-like situation" with Queen Letizia though, but I have no reason to think they are not only friendly terms.

I think that the relationship between Crown Prince Pavlos and King Felipe is, today, quite distant. The prince did not attend the birthday of Queen Sofia, she is his aunt. I think that this is by their wives,Letizia and Marie Chantal, they are totally different, I think they have never made a friendship and this is the consequence of that distancing, but also their lives. The family of Prince Paul and King Felipe never coincide in summer, in winter ..

Pavlos and Felipe were roommates at Georgetown, were they not ? I would assume that should have made them quite close.



Claims that Felipe grew distant from his cousins because of Letizia seem to fit the tabloid narrative of Letizia as some kind of villain who ruined Felipe's life. Personally I don't buy it. In the specific case of Pavlos, it may be simply that he and Felipe are now on very different paths in life.


I mean, Felipe is a busy Head of State dealing with several complicated issues at home and the head of a Royal House with few adult working members, which increases the burden on him too. On the other hand, Pavlos is nowadays mostly a carefree jet-setter/socialite.

Exactly we also never see any of Pavlos/Marie Chantal or their children at Zarzuela or at the Marivent.

No, forgive if I have not expressed myself correctly. I say that MC- Letizia are differents (I do not say it in a negative sense, it is reality, it is obvious MC, it has a concept of life based on luxury, she likes to expose her life on social networks, she prefers the jet-set party . ... and Queen Letizia prefers the simplest life, she values ​​privacy ...), they have not created friendship, and that in my opinion is therefore relevant, because, cousins ​​make different lives, for example, if they, MC and Letizia would have had more connection, they could have gone on vacation together ... But no.

I know that King Felipe doesn't have time, and Prince Pavlos doesn't either, he has his own investment company, they don't have time, and the only time they could have to see them, it is on vacations..

I admire Queen Letizia and I do not see her as the culprit
I believe that Queen Letizia is more willing to sacrifice in favor of her husband, than Princess Marie Chantal, I want to remember that Queen Letizia went to pay tribute to Queen Frederika in 2006, when it was 25 th Anniversary of Queen Frederika´s Death, the Princess Marie Chantal did not travel to Greece, I remembered that she was in a fashion show in Paris. I think Letizia would be more willing to spend a few days on vacation all together, if her husband asked her to, and yet I think Marie Chantal is possible that not.

Infanta Cristina of Spain, Crown Prince Pavlos, Princess Alexia, then Prince Felipe of Spain and Prince Nikolaos during an holiday with their grandmother Queen Frederica at Wolfgangsee (Austria) in 1972.
In those days their parents were attending Munich Olympic Games.
