Since his departure, there has been a lot of speculation about where the king would go. Portuguese media previously reported that the king would have settled in Portugal.
Five star hotel
The king has rented an entire floor in a five-star hotel in Abu Dhabi, according to British news channel BBC. The king is said to be close to the country’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan.
Juan Carlos is suspected of accepting large amounts of bribes for the construction of a high-speed line. King Felipe is said to have urged his departure for some time, in an attempt to limit the damage to the royal family as much as possible. Earlier, he stopped the annual grant of 200,000 euros from Juan Carlos.
The fact that Juan Carlos has now gone into voluntary exile of his own accord is highly remarkable, according to correspondent Alex Tieleman. “It is a landslide. At first it was mainly spoken that Carlos should leave his palace alone or just give up his title. Going abroad is one of the toughest means. Even though Juan Carlos says he has made the decision.” , Tieleman said earlier.
