President Nazarbaev stated in the telegram that King Juan Carlos was courageous to step aside and give a new generation an opportunity to reign. King Juan Carlos was said to be President Nazarbaev's friend.

Well, that is what I call a true and gentlemanlike reaction. I hope Maria Vladimirovna took notice of that. Who would have thought Mr Nazarbayev would teach her a lesson in that.

Thanks for your translation of the core message.

Prince Bertrand, Prince Imperial of Brazil, gave a interview saying he regrets The King's decision but that Monarchy is the best thing for Spain and for democracy.

No, not officialy.

In fact the solemn act of sign in the Royal Palace is slated to take place, if all remain as predicted, one day before of the ceremony of proclamation of Felipe VI.

The abdication will be official and will take legal effect only when the Organic Law ruling the Abdication of Juan Carlos I, now in process of aproval by the Congress and Senate, has been published in the B.O.E. (Boletín Oficial del Estado / State Official Gazette) not before. To prevent interegnum circunstances, the Law will be published the same day of the Proclamation.

Yes Rhys, it seems that finally they will do that. There was much speculation about how they were going to "play" with the law firm and the publication in the Official Gazette.

You can't chose family but you sure can chose your friends who can become family. If that was my aunt, she would be in a darn dungeon for sure and her mouth taped shut. Horrible jealous woman with nothing to show in her life but her big mouth...........You go L/F and long may you reign!

By all means express an opinion that one would prefer a republic, but to do so in such a blatant and public way when one's own niece is about to become queen is rather common and undignified I would say.

Ms Alvarez has every rigth to think whatever she wants but has behaved very inelegantly and opportunisticaly.

Interesting article about the lead-up to the announcement. It seems only Felipe (and staff) was in the loop.
