Why "de facto" & "de jure" are antonyms of each other ? Although they have proximity in meanings.

'de facto' means 'of fact', and 'de jure' means 'of law'. So, 'de jure' means what is official, whereas 'de facto' means what is reality. Sometimes these are antonyms in a given situation of course, if they are the same, there would be no need to use them. :) 'De facto' is far more common than 'de jure' though. I hardly ever see or hear the latter used.

I would not call them antonyms. They simply have different meanings. The dictionary will help you with these meanings.
