World Youth Day in Madrid, Spain, August 16-21, 2011
If you have news or current events of the Royal Family of Spain attending the upcoming World Youth Day in Madrid on August 16-21, 2011, Please kindly share them here. Thanks!

I want to know if some of the Spanish Royals will attend this celebration of the Catholic Church dedicated to the youth of today. Does some of the Spanish Royals be cooperating w/ the activities that are going to be held in this upcoming event?

BTW this is the second time Spain will be celebrating World Youth Day. The last WYD in Spain was celebrated in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, 22 years ago (August 15-20, 1989). The theme for the 2011 WYD in Madrid is: Colossians 2:7 - "Rooted and built up in Jesus Christ, Firm in the Faith"

If you find this thread inappropriate, I do apologize. Admins and Moderators can delete or move this thread if they find so. Thank you very much and God Bless you all! :flowers:

This is an interesting topic. I'd like to know too.

BTW there is an earlier post here in the TRF discussing Pope Benedict XVI's visit to the Zarzuela Palace in preparation of the upcoming WYD in Madrid:

I hope this should be the official thread for the events.

Pope restores calm after protest storm as he touches down in Spain for four day tour | Mail Online

JC still on crutches because of foot problems.
Sofia looks superprofessional again and so much better than JC, as if she was 10-15 years younger than him.

Cory 08-18-2011 03:25 PM

Queen Sofia was in white because that's the privilege of a catholic Queen.

Queen Sofia is perfect, as usual. The Pope seems to feel well, but not the King.

The King may not seem as well as he could, but when I saw his speech yesterday at the welcome ceremony he sounded very animated, and much better that all the speeches I've heard from him in a long time :flowers:

I thought the Queen looked stunning and very well dressed in her grey outfit. The King looked tired but what do you expect, he isn't young anymore and he has gone through a lot. Cant wait for todays pictures with the family.
Thank you for all the pictures and videos so far

First pictures from today at the palace.
