INFANTA ELENA OF SPAIN’S SON INJURED IN SHOOTING ACCIDENT AND LADY LOUISE WINDSOR BREAKS ARM

Infanta Elena of Spain’s 13-year-old son, Felipe Juan Froilan, is recuperating in hospital after the grandson of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia accidentally shot himself in the foot with a 36 caliber shotgun while participating in target practice with his father, Jaime de Marichalar, the ex-husband of Infanta Elena.  The accident occurred in Soria, in north central Spain.   Lady Louise Windsor, the eight-year old daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, suffered a fall while riding on her pony on the grounds of Windsor Castle and broke her left arm.  The Countess of Wessex canceled her plans to travel to Manchester to accompany her husband for an official visit to a cancer hospital, The Christie, in order to be with her daughter.   Lady Louise Windsor was last seen in public only two days ago when she accompanied her parents and other members of the royal family, including her grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, for an Easter Service at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.  Photos by Getty Images and Reuters.
