New king crowned in Spain

  • Prince Felipe, was crowed the king of Spain at midnight when his father King Juan Carlos was abdicated. No foreign heads of state were present at the event, which was quite a low-key. 

    CNN notes that the family has been previously accused of corruption during the economic crisis in Spain. 

    Reports suggest that the new king and his wife will be driven through the streets before they appear at the palace.
