King Juan Carlos Mulls Foundation

King Juan Carlos is setting the stage for a new foundation, El País Royal Family reporter Mábel Galaz wrote in recent days.

There has been much speculation about the King Felipe’s father will have post-abdication. It now seems His Majesty wants to have an active retirement.

Galaz’s sources tell her the foundation, to be reviewed by the Spanish government and King Felipe, will include prominent personalities.

Amid rumors of divorce between King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, Galaz said no such thing was in the plans. The same goes for Don Juan Carlos marrying his lover.

King Juan Carlos and King Felipe have also been working on the ongoing transfer of power between the two sovereigns.
