This Monday, September 19, 2022, the westminster abbeyin London, has been dyed black to honor the Queen isabel II with his state funeral. ORa historical appointment to which they have attended around two.000 distinguished guestswith representation from all the Royal Houses and leaders from all over the planet.
Among those guests were the kings of Spain, Philip VI (54 years old) and Letizia (50), as well as the emeritus John Charles I (84) and Sofia (83). It should be noted that the parents of the current head of state were expressly invited by the British Royal House, although until Monday the disposition of how they were going to be located inside the temple was not known.
However, despite the fact that it had been said that they were not going to coincide physically, that reunion has taken place. The four kings, the current ones and the emeritus, have sat together on the same bench. An image that had not been produced for two years, at the funeral of the Infanta Pilar, and that has left a very significant anecdote. A tense scene between Letizia and her in-laws, Juan Carlos and Sofía.

As planned, Felipe VI and Doña Letizia and the Emeritus Kings, Juan Carlos I and Doña Sofía, have attended the funeral of Elizabeth II separately, but protocol has united them at Westminster Abbey, so the photograph that Zarzuela wanted to avoid has occurred pic.twitter.com/YlTP1mpP9g

Despite the regal and solemn character of the mass, at one point in the state funeral, the emeritus shared some complicit laughter among them. A relaxed scene, and relaxation, that Letizia has not hesitated to censor with a withering look. An attitude of reproach that, as has been verified through the images, Felipe VI has also adopted.
This scene has not been the only detail that has been extracted from the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II. The disposition of the four members of the Spanish Royal House has also been analyzed. Above all, Letizia’s position, in the middle of Juan Carlos and his son, Philip VI. Felipe occupied a place at the end, next to the altar, and next to her was Letizia, who had Juan Carlos and Sofía to her right. In this way, the four, placed next to each other, have followed the funeral for the soul of the Queen.

That yes, toAlthough they have sat together, the Kings and the emeritus have entered the abbey separately. Juan Carlos and his wife have agreed with the kings of Holland; Prince albert (64) and Charlene of Monaco (44); the Queen Anna Maria of Greece; Y Pablo Y Marie Chantal (54).
Be that as it may, this family reunion took place hours after the photo was avoided at the state dinner he organized this past Sunday night Charles III (73). As at the funeral, Juan Carlos also attended the dinner helped by a walking stick and holding on to his personal assistant at all times.
After the funeral, and as reported by the Spanish Royal Family, Felipe VI will participate in the religious ceremony prior to the burial of Queen Elizabeth II in the chapel of Saint George, at Windsor Castle. Felipe has accepted the invitation made by King Carlos III to the Royal Houses to participate in this Religious Servicewhich will take place on the afternoon of Monday, September 19, and of a more intimate nature than the state funeral that takes place in Westminster.
Queen Sofía will accompany the King, while Queen Letizia will not be able to attend as she must take a regular flight to New York. King Emeritus Juan Carlos, on his side, has declined the invitation, according to the same source.
The coffin with the remains of Isabel II will arrive at 3:00 p.m. -2:00 p.m. English time- in the vicinity of the windsor castle, and an hour later he will enter the chapel of San Jorge. At the end of the service, the coffin will be transferred to the royal crypt of the chapel, where the remains of the prince philiphusband of the queen, died in 2021 at the age of 99.
There, at 7:30 p.m., Elizabeth II will be buried with Prince Philip in a private ceremony attended by members of the Royal Family. The marble slab of his grave will be engraved with the words: Elizabeth II 1926-2022.
