It seems that King Juan Carlos is fond of texting public officials in a jovial manner.
Joan Mesquida, former director general of the Spanish Civil Guard and former tourism chief, got a text from the King during a recent radio broadcast, according to El País.
So Mesquida went on the explain that the King not only texts, but is also quick to pick up the phone or return phone calls.
Don Juan Carlos is still recovering from his recent operation.
Other members of the Royal Family, meanwhile, have remained active.
This week Queen Sofia, for example, attended an exhibit at El Prado Museum.
She also donned her mantilla and formal black dress to commemorate the Patrol Madonna of the Civil Guard.
It’s not all good news for the Royal Family these days.
A judge is deciding whether to include the King’s daughter, Infanta Cristina, in her husband’s ongoing corruption investigation.
