Juan Carlos looks frail

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima are in Spain for an official visit.   This video shows the new monarchs greeting King Juan Carlos I, Queen Sofia, and Infanta Elena.     They were met at the airport by the Prince and Princess of Asturias.

The 75-year-old King looks very frail, his face rather pasty.   Sweet to see some affection between the king and queen.  He is wearing a coral tie, matching the Queen's coral outfit.  Earlier in the video, she is seen giving him a kiss on the cheek.

Marlene,

Any idea what language they speak with each other? Spanish? English? Something else?

They all seemed quite comfortable in whichever language it was.

Juan Carlos "is wearing a coral tie, matching the Queen's coral outfit." They are wearing orange in honor of their guests from the House of Orange.
