King Juan Carlos has decided to abdicate from the Spanish throne for political reasons, rather than as a result of declining health, according to sources close to the Spanish royal family.
The monarch reportedly decided in January that he would pass on the crown to his son, Felipe, but delayed the announcement until the conclusion of the European Parliament elections.
