Hi ladies, this actually my second post in the Royal Forums, so as I said the first one, please be patient with me until I understand the dynamic of the forums.

I answer to the comments about the king Juan Carlos trousers colours I must say that in summer we tend to relax and sometimes so much that our sense of style seems to have been left at home. I wouldn't be surprise if the king has left the sobriety at home for the summer.

Nice to meet you all :flowers:
