Queen Letizia walked alongside her husband King Felipe, as the Spanish royals made their way to Athens Metropolitan Cathedral to pay tribute to late Greek King. The royal couple greeted the public before entering the Cathedral and hugged the monarch’s son. They had confirmed their visit, with Casa Real telling HOLA! Spain former Spanish King Juan Carlos will also be present to bid farewell to King Constantine II, last ruling monarch of Greece, who died on Tuesday, January 10. 

They were spotted among other European royals on Sunday, as they landed in the Greek capital. 

Spain’s disgraced former King Juan Carlos, who has been in self-imposed exile in Abu Dhabi, preceded Letizia and Felipe with former Spanish Queen Sofia, who is King Constantine’s older sister.

The last time Felipe and Juan Carlos were seen together in public was at Westminster Abbey in September for the Queen’s funeral. Since August 2020, Juan Carlos has lived in self-imposed exile from Spain over allegedly improper ties to business deals in Saudi Arabia

The disgraced King was under investigation by Swiss and Spanish authorities on suspicion of accepting bribes from commercial contracts in the Gulf states – particularly in the late-2000s construction of the €6.7 billion Haramain high-speed train railway in Saudi Arabia  – and maintaining these proceeds in a bank account in Switzerland.
