The surprise trip of Juan Carlos I to Zaragoza, where his granddaughter Leonor studies

Last minute change of plans. King Juan Carlos I, who did not go out to sail in the Pontevedra regattas due to a catarrhal process, delayed this Sunday, April 21, the flight leaving from the Peinador airport in Vigo.

This visit to Galicia, the second this year, has been somewhat atypical. The emeritus has not gone out to haggle in his Bribón 500 nor has he had a visit from his family, as on other occasions when we have seen Infanta Elena in Sanxenxo and the Ría de Pontevedra.

We have seen him wearing nautical clothing, a windbreaker and a sun hat, checking his cell phone. On this trip, Felipe VI’s father repeated the format and stayed at the house of his friend Pedro Campos, president of the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo. Very kind to the photojournalists stationed there, the emeritus has reunited with fellow sailors.

There are media outlets that suggest that Don Juan Carlos has not headed to Geneva, where his daughter Infanta Cristina lives, nor to Abu Dhabi, his permanent place of residence. The emeritus would have gone to Zaragoza, according to publications The newspaper. There, in the Aragonese capital, her granddaughter, the Princess of Asturias, studies at the General Military Academy. She slips the newspaper that it is likely that the former head of state will come to visit her. Leonor’s first course at the AGM since August of last year when she entered.
