He will announce the reasons later... I think it's because of age, illnesses and all the scandals... After all he clealy said he had been thinking it for a while

Corrina's actions and her revelations, cough, interviews may have helped it along. She has not gone into hiding and appears to serve as a special advisor to the princely couple, in Monaco.

Perhaps he will do as his grandmother did and move to the South of France to live out his years. He certainly has friends (Albert) and now Corrina there.

His judgment has been impaired either by age or illness. This is what is best for Spain. Felipe has much better judgement and seems a much better spouse and father. It is time for the house cleaning to begin.

I think, he is simply tired...... tired of all the scandals, dramatic loss of popularity and getting more and more fragile health.

He did it because it was time for him to. His popularity is low , the scandals are many and there wasn't anything he could do to bring it back. It was time to make a change. Something had to be done.
