At the beginning of October the king had a temporary hip implanted following an infection and his most recent surgery was put a new, permanent artificial hip in place.

The family's visit comes as Spain's king recovers from his ninth hip operation in three years.

Upon leaving the hospital in October King Juan Carlos told the waiting crowd that he was recovering "very well".
