Juan Carlos is supposed to attend the presidential inauguration in Colombia on August 7th. Since 1996, Felipe had attended these ceremonies to represent the crown. Now after he is King with other obligations, the government is sending JC instead.

He is supposed to surface again on August 7th, when the government sends him to represent Spain at the inauguration of the new president.

Even though its an 'official' event on behalf of the government, its not listed on casareal website though.

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

I wonder who JC served first, himself, his ego or the country? I think the role of being king has gone to his head over time and he just took all he could get from the people of Spain. Having friends that live there, they have no respect for this man who abused his position and power.

I am sorry but you are incorrect. King Juan Carlos has been instrumental in bringing Spain out of the dark period of Francisco Franco's dictatorship. He is loved by the people of Spain. However, he has suffered many injuries and it was time he step down. Please go over the history of his reign. He saved Spain in a moment that the new Democracy was trying to be stripped away by the old fascist guard. Even that infamous incident where he was hunting elephants. He went as a guest of a Saudi Prince and while doing the Safari KJC negotiated a very lucrative contract for Spain.

Julia, you are correct. And whatever follies he has been involved in and he has, he has loved his nation and his utmost to keep it a democracy. I can't say business with the Saudis is laudable, but probably practical.
