I remember many many years ago when Queen Sofia was almost hated in Spain. I was odd man out because I always liked her. After 35/40 years later, Sofia is well loved by all that personally know her and appreciate what she has accomplished.

So one never knows what will be in store for Spanish Royals 35/40 years from now. Me, I won't be around to even care.

JC has a lifelong achievement for bringing democracy to Spain, while getting it all wrong the last years of his reign. Does that make him the most unpopular person? And Sofia is 2nd most popular, for what? Having put up with JC for so long? She wasn't even discreet all her life with an autobiography and some controversial statements and still supported Inaki deep into the scandal (probably still does now).

Felipe hasn't done much wrong and Letizia has never been popular, from Day 1. And I doubt she will gain any popularity with Leonor appearing on the scene soon.

I don't think the scandal of Infanta Pilar will harm the monarchy, because she is a member of the Royal family.
As the Letizia, she was never popular, but people respect it and that's the most important thing.
I believe that the monarchy still has a long way in Spain and is very far from over.
Felipe VI is very popular and respected by the Spanish.

April 14 is the anniversary of the proclamation of the Second Spanish Republic. That is why pro-Republic groups were demonstrating on the streets.

It is a fact that republicans are a large section of the Spanish population, but the relevant point is that, on the other hand, there is still a monarchist majority or, at least, a majority that doesn't see the need to change the system of government, even if they are not monarchists per se.

I think the Spanish monarchy is secure. I believe that the majority of Spaniards see no need to change the system of Government. But there will be always manifestations of people who do not agree with the State leadership system, and are entitled to express themselves, but there's no need to boo the King.

The Royal Family has been booed many times in recent years or decades, there is and has always been a strong anti-monarchy sentiment within the country.
These days they will be booed or worse eg in Catalonia or other independency-seeking parts but I agree that Spain has more pressing issues than getting rid of the monarchy.

Although the Royal family has been booed often, we also saw many demonstrations of people supporting the Royal family. The monarchy has a lot of support in Spain and I have noticed that, although there is a part of the Spanish that you don't support the monarchy.
