[Spain] Royal family attended funeral for a 41-year-old family member

Just a few days after attending a funeral with the families of the victims of families in Lorca, Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia had yet to attend another one, but this time for a member of their family.
Together with Queen Sofia, the Prince and Princess of Asturias came to the parish of Santa Teresa in Colmenar Viejo to say their last goodbyes to Fernando Moreno de Bourbon, a nephew of King Juan Carlos, who died last May 13th, victim of a motorbike accident at only 41 years of age.
With a black business suit and with little makeup, Princess of Asturias, who did not leave a single moment on the side of her husband, reunited inside the church with Infanta Elena and sisters of the King - Doña Pilar and Doña Margarita - who also came to pay their last respects. The great absentee in this emotional funeral, was the King, who was on official duty with the Order of Isabel the Catholic at the Academy of Engineers in Hoyo de Manzanares in Madrid, during the celebration of the 300 years of the Academy.
