The Spanish Supreme Court has tabled a paternity suit against King Juan Carlos, King Felipe’s father.
At issue was a long standing claim by Belgian citizen Ingrid Sartiau, who claims to be Don Juan Carlos’ daughter.
King Juan Carlos was constitutionally inviolable during his reign. But his abdication last year opened the door to the suits.
The Supreme Court quickly rejected a claim by a Spanish citizen, but agreed to consider one by Sartiau, who.was born in 1966, abut four years after Don Juan Carlos married Queen Sofia.
