He is rarely seen in Spain, as in the image of King Juan Carlos at the wedding of Hussein of Jordan.

It was one of the most anticipated moments of the event, with King Juan Carlos scheduled to attend the wedlock between Hussein and Razwa Al Hussein of Jordan, along with Queen Sofia. The two reached Zahran Mahal around 2:45 pm, where the ceremony was held. The emeritus then appeared, as on other occasions, walking with a cane, leaning on his assistant and walking clumsily.

However, inside the palace, passing through the corridors and gardens that lead to the room where the wedding was to take place, she had to use a wheelchair. In this way, the Royal Hashemite Court photographers captured a picture of the monarch that had never been seen in Spain (that of King Juan Carlos uses a wheelchair to move for no known reason, such as the 2018 knee operation).

The image of the emeritus with a wheelchair is something we have rarely seen when he has undergone a medical intervention, as Juan Carlos usually opts for a cane and the support of his assistants. However, she is a familiar image among Bourbons, as both her mother María de las Mercedes and the infants Pilar and Margarita have spent a good part of their lives in wheelchairs due to hip problems.

The meeting between Sofia and Juan Carlos is the first since her visit to Athens on 16 January to attend the funeral of the Queen’s brother, Constantine of Greece. Also, Jordan is a very special place for the emeritus kings who went there on their honeymoon.

Guests at the Hashemite wedding included representatives of the main European royal houses such as Prince William and Kate Middleton, William and Maxima of the Netherlands with their daughter Amalia, Prince Frederik of Denmark also attended with his wife Marie. Beatriz de York, daughter of Prince Andrés, also attended with her husband, Edoardo Mapelli.

Beyond the royal representation, US First Lady Jill Biden also did not want to miss the link, attending the occasion with her daughter Ashley, and not with her granddaughters as she did, for example, when He visited Spain.
