King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain in an official portrait
Sometimes it's easy to forget that royals are parents too and when the regal children are grown ups, the concern their mums and dads will have can be passed over. But as King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain headed to a hospital in Madrid to see their eldest child, it was clear for everyone to see that being royal changes nothing about the feelings of a mum and dad.
Infanta Elena, who is 52, is currently third in line to the Spanish throne.
