A change of thrones

AFTER a spate of abdications of late in Europe it was perhaps no surprise when Spain’s King Juan Carlos called it a day.

After all his popularity rating has sunk to an all time low as his family has become embroiled in a series of scandals.

In Britain however, a rush of popularity for William and Kate and Prince Harry, has put serious pressure on the Queen to take a hint from other vacating elderly monarchs and make way for the younger generation.

It is strange that although two thirds of Spaniards are demanding a referendum, only 36% said they would get rid of the monarchy in a vote.

Perhaps we don’t want to scrap Europe’s monarchies after all and all we really need is younger monarchs.

Ones that can keep up with our smart-phone, celebrity-fuelled society.
