The article was in vanitatis which is not the most reliable source.
I say lets wait and see if the old king does return.

Honestly, all the Scandal that has been formed by his departure from Spain, and now he says that he is going to return, it does not make sense.I would say that the image of King Juan Carlos is now worse than before he left. I don't think he's going to come back right away.

Perhaps journalist/friend Carlos Herrera is putting out the possibility of a return just to be provocative, to see if there is any support whatsoever for JC's return to Spain.

There is still the business of the Catalonian Omnium Cultural apparent beef with JC, raising a big stink with the Swiss Government asking them to freeze his ill gotten gains still sitting in their banks. According to WreathofLaurels article several members of the Swiss Federal Assembly have requested further investigations, refusing to take "no" for an answer. https://www.omnium.cat/en/omnium-cul...ss-parliament/

JC is in so much hot water! There are so many layers to his ongoing messes. Sophia, Corinna, divorce/no divorce!
He is 82 years old, he needs to give it all a rest and stay put in Abu Dhabi.

As I said in a previous post I can only foresee a return by JC in extremis ie. with a terminal illness and being allowed home to die in Spain. I think it is established that he has entered a kind of exile, no public duties on behalf of the country, no official assignation, he has to all intents and purposes "disappeared". A return to Spain would only provoke calls for some kind of investigation, trial etc. which will lose impetus the longer he stays away. Out of sight, out of mind.

I agree, I doubt Juan Carlos will return to Spain and the article stating he would did surprise me (though not when I read it was from Vanitatis, which as I understand is more along the lines of the Daily Mail).

In how far there were actually plans for a divorce is open to question. I can't see the King -while in full possession of his mental capabilities- being naïve enough to think in the 2010s that he could get away with making Corinna Spain's queen. Although JC may have told Corinna that he wanted a divorce I think it does not necessarily mean that he was planning a divorce himself.
I think the only thing that made Corinna special was that she happened to be the woman JC was with when he finally got caught in a way that couldn’t be ignored.

I don’t know what JC may have told Corinna but if he told her how special she was and of course he’d marry her if only his wife wasn’t so difficult and so many people weren’t working against him, and she believed him then, IMO, she should feel pretty humiliated that she fell for the line men have been using to string their mistresses along since time out of mind. That’s something I would have kept to myself.

Who knows how many women heard the same story from JC over the decades? What should be clear after the Botswana debacle was that he was never going to divorce his wife and not because said wife was trapping him in the marriage. JC supposedly spent years with Corinna; she’s made a point of saying how much he loved her and adored her son, (whether that was true or not is anyone’s guess),
But when the choice came down to continuing to see Corinna vs continuing to be King of Spain he dropped her and never looked back.

JC and Sofia have been united by their common goal in life - the continuation of the Spanish monarchy. They may have wished many times over the years that there was a way to make that happen without the two of them having to stay together, but I doubt either of them ever seriously contemplated walking away.

Corinna keeps talking....
Ex-mistress of Spain's scandal-hit former King Juan Carlos claims his son Felipe VI was 'embarrassed' when they met - and admits she avoided contact with her lover's children because they made her feel 'uncomfortable'

Dear Corrina feels she was wronged, what a pity. This must be the pitfall if one hang's on the shirttail of a married man. Wow she felt uncomfortable, that works for me,did she ever ask herself how Q Sofia and their children felt??

Profile on Shahpari Azam Zanganeh, Ex wife of Adnan Khasoggi and Business associate of King Juan Carlos in Saudi Arabia. She’s the one who did most of the actual leg work in SA for the king not Corinna, according to this article.

Corinna lies, because she was the one who said that the Juan Carlos money, 2008, was from the AVE commission, however, a month ago, the consortium of companies that made the AVe said that this was not possible, because that work was awarded in 2011, and Shahpari Azam Zanganeh confirms this. In addition Shahpari Azam Zanganeh says that she was the intermediary for the management of the award of the work, and that she was hired by the Spanish consortium (she is an intermediary, she works on it) Corinna was not the intermediary as she said and as she has led to believe to the Swiss justice, it even seems that it was going to be her version before the Spanish judge. This is curious, Corinna has granted this interview, after the Consortium declared it, now in the new interview given to OK Diario, she says that it is not a commission of the AVE.

It seems Darling Corrina is giving the former king and her lover a kick in the rear,so he gets rolled over by a Bus. Well isn't she s sweetheart , she has the need to look good. Me calling her a Darling and sweetheart is not an endearment, but something different.

Oh my goodness, is there are monarch left, Sweden, GB, Spain and Monaco is through, more mistresses to come out with stories?
I wonder how the younger generation will deal or be dealt with possibly committed adultery concerning social media and the more and more transparency in our modern societies-if they remain being monarchs, though it is as old as the road to Rome.

I wonder a lot why miss Larsen talks so much, I mean does she still need money?
her son will feel humilated, I cannot understand how a mother can risk this.
she used to run a business, too and her rather exclusive partners will not appreciate her delicate news in the press every now and then.
is she just getting too old and bored in normal life and seeks attention?
or is there more and she has to fear getting into and being left the victim in the fiscal investigations?
Dios mio!
