It was nice to see a large crowd outside the Palace as King Felipe VI, Queen Letizia, the Princess of Asturias, Infanta Sofia, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, appeared on the balcony.
Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina are no longer members of the Royal Family, but remain members of the King's family. They have not lost their titles or their place in the succession (Elena is third in line after Infanta Sofia), but they will no longer take part in official state occasions.
Infanta Cristina and her children live in "exile" in Switzerland. Infanta Elena and two children live in Madrid. Although no announcement has been made, I expect that Infanta Elena will carry out her engagements on her own.
On Friday, Infanta Elena flew to Geneva to visit her sister, Cristina, who was celebrating her 49th birthday. It was a lightning visit, only 24 hours, but the two sisters were able to spend some time together before Elena returned to attend her father's abdication ceremony.
I watched a bit of the coverage on BBC World. It was very nice to see the crowds cheering along the route and outside the palace. The BBC reporter interviewed several young people, wearing Crowns on their head, who made it clear that the monarchy is the best option for Spain.
