King Juan Carlos Agrees To Interview, Appears In Documentary

King Juan Carlos phoned in to Spanish radio station Cadena Cope for a brief interview in recent days.

The interview was notable because members of the Royal Family don’t often grant formal interviews.

Don Juan Carlos did not make much news, according to media outlets. His Majesty did say his son, King Felipe, had earned the respect of Spaniards.

King Juan Carlos also said he was getting used to a more quiet life, but said he remained open to serving Spain under his son’s leadership.

Separately, a French television station is getting ready to air a documentary on King Juan Carlos produced with Televisión Española.

TVE, however, had declined to air the production in Spain, calling it outdated because of King Juan Carlos’ abdication.
