Re: Condolence message by the King of Spain
It's better known that Sofia had a long time relationship with the British royals, from the Greek connection, but I just remembered that the count of Barcelona had served in the British navy and that his mother's English (and Battenberg) background also made him a close relation.
Lord Mountbatten never let the Battenberg connections fall by the wayside.
