Members from the Royal House of Spain to be Absent from the Monaco Princely Wedding?

According to the Spanish news site, El Mundo, as well as the magazine Hola!, not one member from the Spanish royal family will attend the upcoming princely wedding in Monaco on July 1 and 2:

The reason that the royal family will not attend is that the invitation was addressed to King Juan Carlos only and he cannot come because he is still recovering from his recent knee surgery.


Interestingly, there is nothing on the official website for the royal family of Spain, Casa de Su Majestad El Rey, confirming their non-attendance to the wedding.

Hopefully, there is a misunderstanding and hopefully at least one member from the royal house of Spain will attend.

With only five days to go until the princely wedding in Monaco, it seems that someone created a You Tube channel entitled, Le Marriage Princier Live, dedicated to the upcoming wedding.  It is unknown if the Palais Princier de Monaco in conjunction with the official site, Le Mariage Princier, created this site nor is it known if this You Tube channel will stream the wedding live on July 1 and 2, 2011.

However, I do know that the wedding will be streamed live on the official site for the princely family of Monaco here.
