Felipe VI....A Profile Of Spain's New King

Son of his father, Felipe Juan Pablo Alfonso de Todos los Santos de Borbón y Grecia has successfully come through a rigorous selection process to be chosen as the new Spanish head of state. Some doubt has been cast, from those carping republicans, on his qualifications for the job - given that he appears to have reached the age of 46 without ever having had what could be described as a real job. His wife Letizia can tell him about that, although her decision to abandon journalism for life as queen to be suggests she wasn't that keen on a career either. Felipe sometimes has a beard, and sometimes doesn't, all of which leads to inevitable confusion. Perhaps it's false? We don't know. The elephants of Botswana were unavailable for comment at the time of writing this profile, although there has traditionally not been much love between them and la familia Borbón.
