Again, the constitution of Spain supersedes anything that you might consider "standard practice in private governance". Please refer to the quote below (emphasis added by me):



Sorry, but you...

JC's sisters, nephews/nieces and cousins are a special case because they were caught in the limbo between the republic and the restoration of the monarchy in the format it assumed in the constitution...

Being the daughter of a former king and the sister of the current king, I find it reasonable that she should be entitled to state security, and even more so when she is still 6th in the line of...

The thing that I don't get is that she didn't renounce her place in the line of succession, which is her actual "birth privilege", and nobody, either in the government or in the Royal House, told her...

Opinion polls show that support for the monarchy is still fairly high nationwide in Spain (around 60 %) and Felipe personally gets close to a 70 % approval rating in some polls. I suppose that the...

There is no such thing as "renouncing her dukedom" unilaterally. Titles of nobility that belong to the Crown can be used by members of the RF on a personal basis by grace of the monarch, who can also...

Will Cristina divorce Iñaki ? It is the only sensible thing to do to be consistent with her version that she has been lied to and deceived by her husband on the nature of his business transactions. ...

It is technically correct that it was Franco who originally restored the monarchy. However, the present constitutional monarchy is a creation of the constitution of 1978, which was ratified in a...

Juan Carlos was actually a very important figure in Spanish and, more broadly, European history. It is a shame that he is now being associated with bribery or corruption. Having said that, the story...

No surprise really about that statement from the Royal House. What else could they have said other than that they respect the independence of the judiciary ?

That is indeed a surprise and, regardless of Cristina's guilt or lack thereof, a very troublesome move by the Spanish court. A country where a person can be prosecuted for a criminal offense without...

The Infantas are no longer members of the Royal House, so it is understandable that they no longer have public engagements on behalf of the King. It is regrettable though that Infanta Elena was also...

I believe the correct translation would be "my son-in-law" (mi yerno).

Another question to the Spanish speakers here: what does "asilvestrado" mean ?
