Royal Profile: HE Don Juan Urdangarín y Bórbon

Don Juan Urdangarín y Bórbon was born 30 September 1999, the eldest son of Infanta Cristina of Spain and Iñaki Urdangarín. He is 8th in line for the Spanish throne after his uncle, 4 cousins and mother. His godparents are his maternal aunt Inftanta Elena and paternal uncle Mikel Urdangarín.

He grew up in Spain, until his family moved to Washington, DC for his dad's job in 2009. At present, the family in still based in the US. Just like any other 13 year old, Juan enjoys riding his bike, going to handball games and to Palma de Mallorca for the much-celebrated Spanish Regatta season. He and his brothers are avid fans of FC Barcelona.

Because he and his siblings are so far down the line for the throne and the family lives in the US, he is primarily kept from the limelight, unlike his cousins.
