The Spanish publication, Reportaje Semana has not said what the Prince actually said, but it is a great improvement after Kardam spent months in a coma following the accident in Spain.

Kardam’s wife, Miriam Ungria, was also involved in the crash, but as since recovered.

She told Reportaje Semana that she spends her day with Kardam, pushing him around the house in his wheelchair.

When asked about what she would say to those who doubted the Prince had a future, Miriam said, “Just remember that before you say certain things it must be verified because they misinform and can do you much harm.”

Prince Kardam is the eldest son of Bulgaria’s former King and Prime Minister, Simeon Saxe-Coburg.

Juan and Pablo Urdangarin made the Roman Catholic rite at a church in Barcelona, where their mother, Infanta Cristina is based.

The King and Queen Sofia, the Crown Princely couple and their two young daughters, Leonor and Sofia, as well as Infanta Elena, joined the Urdangarins’ for the ceremony.

This is one of the last chances the royal family gets to be with Infanta Cristina and her family. This summer, they are transferring to the United States due to husband Inaki’s job.

Also making her first communion is Infanta Elena’s daughter, Victoria de Marichalar. She will be making the rite this coming Wednesday.

One of the reasons why it would be a big event is because it may be the first time Infanta Elena appears with her estranged husband, Jaime de Marichalar, since announcing their separation back in November 2007.
