Another Abdication

Postby Jeremy Kudlick » 02 Jun 2014, 11:37

According to a CNN article, King Juan Carlos will be stepping down, and Crown Prince Felipe will ascend to the throne. As of right now, the date does not appear to be set.

You beat me to it. It will have some Heraldic implements I guess. HRH Infante Felipe losing the Principe de Asturias lable to his arms.

Not forgeting their wives:

The succession of Felipe to the throne will mean that their eldest child HRH Infanta Leonor will probably recieve the title Princesa de Asturias as she is set to succed her father in due time.

Infanta Leonor will be heir presumptive. If Rey Felipe has a son, which is not beyond the realms of possibility, then the son will, as the law currently stands, become heir apparent.

Well He could of cause still father a son. But time is working against it.

While they have yet to enact it as law it has already been discussed and decided that absolute primogeniture will likely apply to the children of Felipe. So, the possible birth of a son likely won't make a difference. Since a law has to be passed to deal with the current situation and Felipe will soon succeed as Felipe VI I would bet the Cortes will now take up the question of succession and settle it in law.
