I'm afraid so.:(
I live in the Canary Islands, where Alexia of Greece lives. In addition, the Princes of Asturias came to my island last year, but I've never been so lucky. Anyway, I keep the hope because... who knows? Maybe one day I just get the chance. ;)

The commemoration of the thirtieth anniversary of the arrival of Don Juan Carlos to the throne will not happen inadvertent but that, on the contrary, will be an outstanding official celebration. According to Moncloa has known to the Confidential Digitalis, has been specially interested in that thus it is.




In agreement with the sources consulted by ECD, the possibility of organizing some celebration it was checked discreetly from the Zarzuela and one was with one cold welcome on the part of the Congress of the Deputies and their president, Manuel Marín.



Before that situation, one thought not to raise plus the subject, but he was then when the Moncloa took part, that was added immediately and with great interest to the idea, offering all its collaboration and initiative. Behind that disposition he is the president of the Government, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

Considering that the anniversary is fulfilled next the 22 of November, preliminary contacts between Zarzuela and Moncloa have taken place, to be advancing in the calendar, at the moment still very in phase of rough draft. But what is clear it is the will of the Government of not letting pass this occasion to recognize the paper of the monarch in these thirty years of the history of Spain.

The decision has been confirmed by the insular delegate of Education of the Government of Canaries, Luis Gonzalez, who has advanced to CANARIAS7 the presence in the act of the president of the regional Executive, Adam Martin and of the minister Maria Jesus San Segundo.

I have to say that, as a Canary Islander, I'm very happy with this new.:)
