The arrival of Juan Carlos I in Spain is imminent. The king emeritus will land this Thursday in Sanxenxo (Pontevedra) where this weekend a nautical test will be held before heading to Madrid to meet on Monday at the Palacio de la Zarzuela with Felipe VI, Queen Sofía and the rest of the Family Real, as announced tonight by the Casa del Rey.
The Zarzuela statement also explains that this visit "is part of the desire of His Majesty King Juan Carlos to travel frequently to Spain to visit family and friends, and organize his personal life and place of residence in areas of private character”.
As Zarzuela reported last Sunday, the King called his father on the phone while he was in Abu Dhabi, where he had traveled to both meet in Madrid. Don Juan Carlos hoped that his return had also been announced and, this Monday, it was he who, through the journalist Fernando Ónega, confirmed that he would be in Pontevedra this weekend.
