Yes.That was the cause for not attending his enthronement. Concerning hus wedding, another cause: inviting LA of Borbon as Royal Highness and Duke of Anjou.
He was finally received at Zarzuela in 2016, in an audience with King Felipe. So, maybe there has been a kind of forgiveness with the new reign.
