Royal Profile: Don Juan Urdangarín y Bórbon

Don Juan Valentín de Todos los Santos Urdangarin y de Borbón was born 30 September 1999, the eldest son of Infanta Cristina of Spain and Iñaki Urdangarín{Source}. He has two younger brothers and a younger sister{Source}:
  1. Don Pablo Nicholas Urdangarin y de Bourbon (2000)
  2. Don Miguel Urdangarín y de Bórbon (2002)
  3. Doña Irene Urdangarín y Bórbon (2005)

His godparents are his maternal aunt Infanta Elena and paternal uncle Mikel Urdangarín{Source}.

He grew up in Spain, until his family moved to Washington, DC for his dad's job in 2009{Source}. He and his family moved to Switzerland in 2012{Source}. Just like any other 14 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 Switzerland, he is primarily kept from the limelight, unlike his cousins. He is 7th in line for the Spanish throne after his 4 cousins, aunt, and mother.
