Don Juan Carlos, the King of Spain will not be attending the Royal Wedding in London between Prince William and Catherine Middleton. The Spanish monarch generally only attends family weddings or those of close friends.
With three weeks to go to the ceremony on April 29, the Zarzuela Palace in Madrid has confirmed that only Queen Sophia and the Prince and Princess of Asturias will be attending. The infantas have not been invited to Westminster Abbey.
The threesome of the Queen, Letizia and Felipe were seen travelling together last summer to the World Cup in South Africa, when the King was recovering from a lung operation.
