And young people, even in my circle of people with universtary degrees, repeat: "he must give back what he stole". Even if the informations are true, he has only been accused of receiving money from a foreign state and hiding it in Switzeland. Nobody has even suggested he has stolen money from the Spanish taxpayers, like many politicians that now "cast a stone on him". Actually, right now, young people are only worried about partying and spreading covid. Pathetic!
In Spain, you must always have in mind that story when Alfonso XII entered Madrid after being proclaimed King. There was a man shouting "God save the King, God save the King". The King thanked him for his enthuasiam. And then, the turned to a man next to him and said: "I shouted louder the day we kicked off the w###e of his mother". That is Spain.
Actually, the Royal Family was popular (and beloved?) during the 80's and 90's and the beginning of the 2000's. I still remember when the BRF had the annus horribilis and the SRF was shown as an example. Everything changed in the 2000's. First the Prince's wedding, which was not unanimously accepted, then the Urdangarin affair and finally Corinna and Botswana.
