As for the Spanish, they are also a bit more "hit and miss" about attending foreign royal events than other European monarchies. I was a bit surprised, though, in this case, because I was under the impression that King Felipe is friendly with Crown Prince Frederik, so I thought the former might want to attend the latter's celebration for personal reasons. Still, heads of state cannot always follow their personal preferences in scheduling, especially for an event abroad.
I found it interesting that Liechtenstein was represented by not Monaco.
