    2. Ummm he has aged alot in the last 20 yrs. He is not exactly the stud he was even 20 yrs ago. Been a rocky path in those years. That will age you.

    3. We all age, no exceptions for royals!!! Unless you go the botox way or plastic surgery, you do have bags under your eyes - I should know, I'm 80, and I look nothing like I looked even 10 years ago.

    4. That is the truth lizzie! Time waits for no one. I do think his health and personal challenges family wise have taken a toll. As it would anyone.

    A pesar de los fallos de los últimos tiempos, los hechos positivos son infinitamente superiores a los negativos y nunca lo olvidaremos. Gracias por siempre.

  4. Feliz Cumpleanos, Majestad!
    One of the two monarchs of our time who effectively had a positive impact of historical importance. I'm so sorry both for his health issues and that he had to abdicate in such unworthy conditions. He may have had his fallibilities, his pecadillos, but he's a good hearted person with manly poise, no one can doubt that.

    1. Very true. Think of how heady it was with Franco and all that came from that ? I bet Juan has some great stories

    2. Who is the other one, ZL? What do you think?

  5. Who wrote that? Juan Carlos' not just a great monarch, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. Are they kidding? icon? inspiration?, I'm sure Sophia does not agree.

    1. Los asuntos de un matrimonio son PRIVADOS. Lo que piensa Sofía sólo lo sabe ella, no usted ni yo. ¿Acaso se comentan aquí los devaneos amorosos del ex-rey de Bélgica, de Alberto de Mónaco, CG de Suecia, Príncipe Felipe de GB...? NO.
      Y sí, el es un icono, una inspiración y un ejemplo COMO REY.
