Juan Carlos & Sofia to divorce?
King Felipe V's installation was the last time Juan Carlos and Sofia were last seen in public.
This summer, Queen Sofia spent most of her summer holidays at the Marivent Palace in Mallorca. Juan Carlos did not accompany her. The former king has only been seen twice in public this summer, first at the inauguration of Juan Manuel Santos as the new president of Colombia and in Granada to show his support for the Spanish basketball team.
On Tuesday, the Italian newspaper, La Repubblica, published a small article stating that an imminent announcement about an "effective divorce" between Juan Carlos and Sofia would be forthcoming from the King's official office.
The Royal Palace in Madrid has refused to comment on the report. "Experience" Spanish reporters believe that the palace will offer a brief statement about an official separation, not a divorce.
Queen Sofia remains in Mallorca with her sister, Princess Irene of Greece and Denmark.
