Oh my those girls have gotten so tall! And of course beautiful. So glad they are going to see their grandfather.
And I have to say this, but gracious how HOT is Felipe these days. That man just keeps getting better with age.

Wheelchair?

In the US, President Franklin Roosevelt managed to win 4 elections, end the Depression, and prosecute WWII while in a wheelchair. I do believe that was a bit more difficult than being a King, so surely JC shouldn't have to abdicate just because he might not be able to walk.

I agree with both of the highlighted comments! I imagine that Sofia will end up being taller than Leonor; in this photo they look like they're the same hight, but in others Sofia looks a little smaller. On another note, I like their outfits. Their tops are cute. In the photo I linked, there's a woman in the crowds wearing a bright blue top and white trousers who I think looks a lot like Infanta Cristina; but I'm guessing it's not her.

I know they were people of a certain age, that's why I said 'young' with ''. They were young compared to JC who is 75, most importantly they didn't have 8 operations during a period of 2 1/2 years while holding their office. Any high politician or minister who is 75 with 8 surgeries the last 2 1/2 years likely would have asked to retire or resign.

If people want a politician as a head of state who can be asked to resign because he or she has had 8 surgeries at the age of 75 then why don't they get one. Juan Carlos is a monarch, not a politician.

Really I think what people want right now does not matter much. And this debate is not going anywhere.

This is a question of power and money... an old generation rooted in the power and privilege, which is ready for anything as long as nothing changes ... and a younger generation, with another view of the world, frustrated by the lack of opportunities to generate a transition. And that affects from the Crown to ordinary citizens, of one form or another, affects all society.

The king is the symbol of a system, of a generation, of a way of doing things ... and if that changes, that would generate other changes. While things do not change, all maintain their status, and now everything goes to maintain things as they are. Although this crumbling system and citizens claim changes.

This new surgery has disrupted the campaign to restore the prestige of the king... this week the king leaves the hospital, and I fear that he will not opt for the slow recovery that doctors recommend. Too many months, too many important events... a king forcing everything to come to the foreground, and a prince allow to do only what is strictly necessary.

And at this time the Princess is the weak element that they use to ensure that, easy victim to which is easier to attack without mercy. She is a dispensable element and they will not mind getting rid of her to achieve their goals.

Well to be fair, in the early days Roosevelt was rarely photographed in a wheelchair. And the press of yesterday while intrusive is not the same press of today, with literally everyone with the Iphone having the ability to serve as a Paparazzi.

Regardless, not being able to walk properly, or walking with the assistance of a cane is not a legitimate reason to abdicate IMO. He might need to slow down for a bit but that it. Its not affecting his mind.
