I would never rank "BUNTE" as a reliable source. 80-90% will be pure speculation.

The Canadian Press: Spain's king to have knee operation for sports injuries
Latin American Herald Tribune - Spain’s King Juan Carlos to Have Knee Surgery

The knee surgery probably has to happen, when looking at the King I am sure there is more, he has been looking ill for some time now, but its a sensitive topic and admitting more other than what cannot be denied could be suicide for the institution.

A visibly declining health of JC, especially over a long time period, will lead to a discussion about the monarchy itself what the SRF is dreading. Looking at an ailing King for months in this political climate could lead to the public asking whether they need a King at all, the young and unemployed could figure that Spain doesnt. Dynamics can be dangerous. It would be a different matter if the King would drop dead and Felipe is his successor, no time for a public debate in this case.

I really don't like to specualte about people's health but when I saw the pictures of the King during the National Security Council meeting the other day, he really seemed frail. It can of course be the aftermath of the grand parade in Malaga. He is not the youngest person around, now is he? He probably needs some rest after such a long day under the sun and all that people et cetera.
I hope he will be better soon, though..
Btw, a bit off topic mybe but tonight there's a documentary about Juan Carlos in german tv ZDF tonight.

JC shortly spoke to journalists and although he used some irony, he cleary doesnt like the fact that some media present him as "almost dead" and stated that he is not as worse as some might suggest.

El Rey, enfadado por las noticias sobre su salud: 'Estoy fatal, para morirme' | España | elmundo.es

Seems, and hopefully, the King has only physical ailing and his mind remains clear.

I am not Spanish either, but I respect and admire King Juan Carlos greatly. Hope that he can solve his health problems. If it is a problem in the knee, it can debilitate the person but it is something that can be solved. Of course, when one is older, every little thing takes more time to heal. Also, King Juan Carlos was always a very active man as well a lover of sports, especially sailing. It must be hard for him not to be able to do what he loves.
Anyway, LONG LOVE THE KING! Salud, MAJESTADE!

One of the worst things is his speaking ability has deteriorated. It's rather painful to see the Head of State couldn't make clear speeches at the state dinners or Christmas. Don't know what has happened after the lung surgery, I can see why some media was asking for more transparency on his health.

This is not good the king's speech is not as well as it once was.
I still believe miracles can happen no matter what the situation
if it is the will of God.I do want King Juan Carlos to get better
healing takes time and patience.

Was this announced before that he would be having surgery or did it come as a surprise?

Not surprised that his speech is not as good after the surgery, its quite normal after lung surgery that he wont be able to speak as good.

His speech seems to be slurred what can have many reasons and in case it is a result from lung surgery it would be one of the better reasons I can think of.

Others, much worse, would be a minor stroke or dysarthria, what can be caused by serious illnesses such as Parkinson or ALS.
