A BRITISH Hispanist has updated the Spanish edition of a book about King Juan Carlos to include damning events such as the king’s Botswana hunting trip in April.
Juan Carlos: A People’s King by Paul Preston, originally published 10 years ago, now also includes the involvement of Inaki Urdangarin, the king’s son-in-law, in a multi-million-euro corruption case.
While Preston admits he is not a monarchist, he says he believes the ‘constitutional monarchy has an essential role to play in Spanish democracy’.
The veteran historian, 66, who has also written biography on General Franco, added he still finds Spain interesting – particularly Cataluna and Andalucia.
