Queen Britney Spears And That Thin, Unhappy Spanish Princess Hang Out

Even though Spain’s royal family isn’t having the best summer ever, they bucked up and welcomed the King and Queen of the Netherlands for a day trip.

Despite battling rumors that she’s had it with the in-laws, Princess Letizia greeted King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima alongside her husband, Prince Felipe at an airport in Madrid, Spain today.

Why have the royal family fallen out of favor with their subjects?  Well, King Juan Carlos of Spain needed hip surgery after falling during a secret elephant hunting safari.  Not only that, but he took the foxy Princess Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein along with him.

The best part? Queen Sofia didn’t change her plans to be by her husband’s side after the accident.  Instead, she continued celebrating Greek Orthodox Easter with her brother in Greece.

After leaving hospital with a new hip, the King apologized to the public for his safari adventure, which cost about $60,000.

“I am very sorry,” he said. “I made a mistake. It won’t happen again.”

No word yet on how much Prince William hates His Majesty.

Despite Maxima’s pained facial expressions, I think she’s got style, poise and a great head of hair.
