RTVE Broadcaster Apologises For Comparing Princess Leonor To Juan Carlos

Spain´s main official television broadcaster has issued a public apology for comparing the young princess Leonor to her scandal-ridden grandfather, Juan Carlos.

The public gaff was made on the state´s main broadcaster RTVE, during a show with presenter Monica Lopez when the headline banner which read “Leonor is leaving Spain, like her grandfather” appeared under image of the princess as the show announced her move to study abroad.

The young royal has been accepted to study a two year course at the  International Baccalaureate programme of the United World Colleges (UWC) educational institution at the UWC Atlantic College, in Wales.

The princess´s parents, King Felipe and Queen Letizia made the announcement on Wednesday, February 10th.

Leonor’s grandfather, the late king Juan Carlos, lives in self imposed exile in the United Arab Emirates following a series of  financial scandals that forced him to flee the country in August 2020.
