Doctors had to operate the King to address an infection stemming from hip replacement surgery.

They are now administering antibiotics and will soon have to operate again.

His Majesty received ambassadorial credentials before going into surgery. He did so at Zarzuela Palace, rather than the usual venue, the Royal Palace in downtown Madrid.
