JuanOn Friday, February 22, 2013, the Spanish royal court denied rumors that His Majesty King Juan Carlos I of Spain is planning to abdicate in favor of his awesome son, His Royal Highness Prince Felipe of Asturias:

“His Majesty has not raised at any time the possibility of abdicating nor plans to do so… His Majesty will keep working as usual and will continue to honor his commitments…”

So there you have it.  The old king is not going anywhere and the people of Spain are stuck with him forever and ever and ever.  Well, until he passes…

  1. Do you know what exactly is up with his health? He’s certainly not my favorite ruler (looking at you Daisy!) but it seems he’s aged tons this past year. That’s sad to see in anyone.
    Thx! Love your work, per usual!

    1. I believe his recent operations and perhaps stress is the reason why the old king doesn’t look all that great these days. His bloated face, I believe, may be due his medication.

  2. I think that it wouldn’t be the right way to abdication to him. sooo.. he is doing well. because, fr example,in The Netherland they have tradition of abdication. it’s no in other monarchies. and it’s good I think, because Queen or King – they have to be monarch to the end of their lifes.
