Don Juan Carlos pidió a su hija que renunciase, dice Ónega - La Nueva España - Diario Independiente de Asturias

Juan Carlos I a Felipe VI sobre la infanta Cristina: Déjamelo a mí que soy su padre - Noticias de Casas Reales

There is a new book on King JC, 'The man who would be King', by Fernando Onega.
The author claims that

- the infection in JC's hip was potentally fatal due to septicemia

- JC already thought of abdication in December 2010, but only pursued further in the spring of 2013 when he asked the head of casa real to find out the necessary details.

- After a desastrous appearance at Pascua Militar on Jan 6th 2014 JC started the process. On March 31, he informes the highest government officials.

- Several reasons that prompted the king to take the step to abdicate: willingness to make way for a new generation, deterioration of the image of the monarchy in the public and the health of the monarch. The journalist also adds a sense of loneliness and isolation that had the King, the relationship with the government of Mariano Rajoy was "little fluid", a bad communication.

- In the book, Ónega also ensures that the relationship between King Juan Carlos and Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein is broken and the relationship with Queen Letizia became better, there was at first a clash of characters that lasted for many years but now that relationship is cordial.

" just not the one he planned on occupying for the rest of his life. I honestly wonder how accurate this new book is. Does she give actual quotes and recorded interviews in gathering all information? Is it just her own interpretation of events? What is actually known?

The book title is 'End Game'. Juan Carlos used to be untouchable for a long time for bringing democracy to Spain. It all ended with gossip culture and his own mistakes.

New book and already best seller about the former King's private life.

He wanted to divorce and give to his Mistress the Princess of Sayn W . the tittle of Royal Highness.
All what he did for Spain will be forgotten and his privite life comes out.

Sad for the new King .
We have the same Situation in Belgium even worse as the relationship between Queens Mathilde and Paola is difficult.

New controversy pops up regarding Juan Carlos & Corinna:
El dinero del fondo de Juan Carlos I y su amiga Corinna acabó en tres paraísos fiscales | InfoLibre.es

The 21 million Euro Hispanic-Saudi Fund, the project promoted by the king in which acted Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein as advisor, ended in Channel Islands, Switzerland and Bermuda, a business initiative designed to encourage Spanish investment in Saudi Arabia, did not leave a single euro in Spain or generated any employment.

From 2009 to 2012, King Juan Carlos and the German-Danish entrepreneur Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein shared a duplex apartement located in the idyllic luxury resort in the Swiss Alps, renting price 7.000 Euro per day.
