Pablo Urdangarin, wild card and “successor” of the Infanta Elena

What draws attention to Pablo’s conciliatory personality, is that much has to do with that of the Infanta Elena during his youth. For many years, the eldest daughter of King Juan Carlos served as the perfect wild card within the Royal Family, having carried her love for Spain with her beyond the family problems that could exist within the Bourbons, showing that she is always available when the Zarzuela and their affairs see fit.

This detail became more and more public as a result of the outbreak of the Noós Case. That was when Doña Elena extended a hand to her sister Cristina, despite the fact that some members of the Royal House chose to turn their backs on the then Dukes of Palma. Princess Leonor’s aunt did not hesitate to stay by her little sister’s side whenever it was necessary, both publicly and privately, thus being one of her fundamental pillars even in the most complicated situations. Something that was also reflected with the abdication of Don Juan Carlos and the subsequent proclamation of Felipe VI as King of Spain. Some circumstances in which the Infanta was not entirely favored, and yet, He knew how to live up to it by acquiring a preferential role that has nothing to do with the one he has carried out later, taking a second plane as part of the King’s Family.

In this way, the King’s sister and his nephew show a series of similarities for which their role within the family is of vital importance, and as long as their attitudes are so mediating, it will continue to be so.
