Juan Carlos, who took sooo long to think about the salvage of the sp.monarchy, is a hypocrit who has a double standard for himself and for his daughter.
On the moral plan, the only one both father and daughter (so far) might be condemned, he got off the hook in a rather graceful manner.
For ages he has been facing accusations of corruption, money laudering, doubtful friends, adultery, etc., and stepping down from the throne has hardly been a penalty for him.

And he does maintain all his royal prerrogatives.
He maintains his royal titles and all the inherent benefits.
