King Flies To UAE, Discusses Meeting With Father

King Felipe, along with other world leaders, flew to the United Arab Emirates over the weekend after the death of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

King Felipe’s visit was also notable because his father, King Juan Carlos, moved to the UAE after a rash of corruption allegations.

Media outlets reported that King Felipe spoke by telephone with his father and the two agreed to meet in the near future.

Speculation has surrounded King Juan Carlos’ return to Spain as the former head-of-state faces no charges and has worked to make good with tax authorities.

Don Juan Carlos cannot stay at the Zarzuela Palace complex where he used to live and where his wife, Queen Sofia, still lives.
