So, its official. I didn't believe it when i saw the breaking news tweet on my phone.
Best of luck to the new King & queen.

Long live King Felipe vi and Queen Letizia !

I wonder what went on behind the scenes. The old man will surely have protected himself. This will be hard on everybody, we'll see how active for example Sofia will stay. Juan Carlos will probably become some kind of Elder Statesman, still using his connections. There will be a lot of pressure on the Asturias family now, Leonor becoming Princess of Asturias at the age of 9.
