His Majesty King Juan Carlos I of Spain to Have Another Operation.(VIDEO)

Poor His Majesty King Juan Carlos I of Spain.  The old king just cannot seem to get a break this year. Any way, during last evening’s dinner for the opening of the 22nd Ibero-American Summit in Cádiz, Spain, His Majesty announced that he will have operation on his left hip on Friday, November 23, 2012.

Doctors recommended that I head straight for the surgery room, I wanted to postpone it at least until next week so I can be here with all of you, my Ibero-American brothers and sisters, in order to strengthen together this extraordinary assemblage of affinities and affections that is our Ibero-America …”

Poor guy.
