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.
