Spain protects former King Juan Carlos from legal action- and paternity suits | World news | theguardian.com
Quote:
Spain's parliament has passed a law protecting former King Juan Carlos from lawsuits in Spanish civil and criminal courts, including two paternity suits filed in 2012 and 2013, to stem further damage to the monarchy's battered prestige.

The special legislation to protect Juan Carlos, who abdicated on 2 June in favour of his son Felipe, passed thanks to the majority held in parliament by the ruling centre-right People's party. No other parties backed the measure.

A waiter who claims he is the illegitimate son of Spain's former king has lodged his claim in the country's highest court in a bid to finally prove he is of royal blood.
Alberto Sola, 58, whose adoptive parents are peasants from Catalonia, says his DNA matches that of Juan Carlos, 76, the monarch who abdicated the throne last month and allegedly bedded more than 1,500 women.

His mother is said to have met the former king when she was 18 in the 1950s, six years before he married Sofia of Greece and Denmark and 20 years before he took the throne.

Now the suit has been passed on to the Supreme Court by a lower court where it had been under review in light of controversial new legal protections for ex-king Juan Carlos, 76, who lost his total immunity when he quit the throne last month.
Spanish waiter's legal bid to prove he is the son of King Juan Carlos will be considered by supreme court after monarch's decision to abdicate means he had no legal protection | Mail Online

The Italian press speaks of impending divorce in Sofia and Juan Carlos

La Repubblica stresses that they were not seen together since the acts of proclamation. According to the Italian paper, soon there will be an official announcement. The Royal House has declined to make a statement.

The Queen's biographer Pilar Urbano thinks that there will be a formal separation and Juan Carlos will soon retire to Switzerland

No, La Repubblica says divorce is imminent because they have not been seen together and spent their holidays apart.

The credible version is supported by Pilar Urbano who gave an interview to GALA. She said what we already know, that they have been living separate lives for ages, only kept together by duty and conservative beliefs. She says that JC will retire abroad (possibly with Corinna?), what seems likely. Sofia will spend her time between family abroad and in Spain, mainly her grandkids and the work that is left for her to do.

El Mundo only repeats the information of the Italian newspaper, that the only thing it does is speculate. La Repubblica does not give any source or any new information. They have made private plans separately for years, and can continue to live the same way.

I don't think they will divorce... they haven't done so far and have been living two different lives for a while so I think that agreement works for them...

Personally I doubt the highly religous Queen Sofia would countenance divorce, and i hope she wouldn't give him the satisfaction ! There is no reason not to simply go their separate ways, and no need for a formal divorce.

I don't think he's seeing corinna anymore. i believe she has said so herself.

yes, i don't know what to think of this. JC and sofia have been living their lives for years on and it has worked so far, so i guess no need to repair what isn't broken.

I'd tend to agree with you,it would really surprise me if they did actually divorce given the media attention it would attract so early into King Felipe's reign.

Queen Sofia has been raised Orthodox, and in orthodox religion the divorce is acceptable, so I do not think that she would not accept divorce for this reason. I think they already found their way, I do not thionk they will change now.

Perhaps she is the one to want out. She has put up with his philandering for many years and has kept her dignity. Maybe she has had enough.

There is nothing to hold on to emotionally speaking. JC's reputation has taken a huge dive, but hers is still sterling.

Maybe she wants a clean break so she can live what is left of her life without the burden of maintaining a facade. Let JC go his own way with whatever female he can entice to take care of him.

I think Sofia should not have to bolster the popularity of a man who has disappointed her for so long and has trampled her feelings into the dust. Let her live her life free of the trouble of having to pretend he cares for her.

She should have a choice. She has sacrificed her personal wants and desires for the Good of Spain for many years and deserves a happy retirement. If she feels it's better without being married to JC then she should have the choice.

My feeling is that it should be her choice to make-whether it is maintaining the status quo or breaking free of the relationship.

She deserves the best life can bring her. She has done her duty. It is time for her to be happy.
