According to the informations the recovery will be long, several weeks of rest of the foot and at least 4 months of rehabilitation. The King will start having official activity in the next days but only in palace.

I can't see him being pushed around in a wheelchair. It wouldn't do his dignity and pride any favours.....

...sitting in a wheelchair damages one's pride and dignity?

Concerns about the health of the king, he looks fragile

I get pushed in a wheelchair all the time. Does not hurt my pride or dignity... No offence is meant by this post, as you of course are free to have your opinion. Just giving you the perspective of a handicapped person on your remark.
Later....
I do sort of see your point.
JC is not used to being pushed around in a wheelchair. I am, because that is all I have ever known.... for him it may take some getting used to.

How do we know JC will be in a wheelchair?
Latin American Herald Tribune - Spain’s King Juan Carlos Undergoes Successful Achilles Surgery

A bit off topic, I dont see any connection between pride and dignity and being conferred to a wheelchair. One of the most longstanding politicians in Germany, current Finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble, does a tremendous job from a wheelchair since 1990.

For me, there is no relation between pride & dignity and a wheelchair in general and especially not for public people like JC.

Thanks lula, I was under the impression that the issue can be resolved with crutches but we shall see.

Duke, the knee of the other leg had surgery 3 months ago, so he can not force it. Maybe for the National Day he could walk a short distance but he will not be able to be 4 hours standing.

He cannot walk for 10 or 15 days, so in the next days he only will receive audiences sat. The 15th is the opening of the Judicial Year that is a very solemn act, the only member of the royal family that could replace himm is the Prince and he will be in Paris that day.

The problem in his Achilles' tendon, was for not resting enought after the surgery in the knee ... we will see what consequences can have this trip.
Maybe the King wanted to show that he is still active and capable of doing his own stuff, I guess it was down to image. This "private" fluff event is very unlike JC but could easily conceal his handicap, while the act next week in Santander would be more exhausting (standing, reading a speech).

Yes, but if it he wants to do that he must do it in Spain, in Madrid in a calm act and not in a private trip to Monaco to see yachts.

We will see what apology they find for the most absurd thing that the King has made lately. And let's hope that this trip does not have consequences in his health ... and he finish having to stay away from important acts as the National Day.

Yes, I agree with you and I cant recall JC doing such a fluff event abroad, ever, let alone in this health condition. Although it is considered "private" and not listed on casareal he did meet a fellow Head of State in public. Maybe JC promised to come in exchange to the wedding he missed in July.

I don't know if it's the most absurd thing or not, but he seems to be shooting all over lately. Not good at all.

Just wondering how much his "cabezonadas" are starting to wear down everyone else on the royal household. He's been losing his temper lately, and even though he's always been treated with kid's gloves by the press, it's becoming publicly known.

JC looked like a big boy in a toy store in Monaco . He could be the reason why Sofia had lunch with Infanta Pilar and Margarita, she needs the help of the two sisters .

Honestly, I think Sofia's attitude towards JC's antics is that she couldnt care less. The only thing she really cares about is for the monarchy to continue with her son.

I'm not sure about it. Even if Sofia doesn't care about JC as much as her younger days, she still likes to be Queen very much. Now she is still very healthy, lots of time on her own after her kids have their own family, she really enjoys the job of the Queen very much. She was the one who said 'the King will never abdicate', on the other hand, JC had said he wouldn't want to be a wheel chair king. I guess we wouldn't see JC on the wheel chair .
