The expectation that surrounds the reunion tomorrow, Monday, between Felipe VI and Juan Carlos I after two years in Abu Dhabi is marking the last day of the King Emeritus in Sanxenxo (Pontevedra). Asked by the journalists if he wanted to see his son again, he replied: “I’m here, in Sanxenxo”.

Previously to this, he said “ask, you ask”, referring to a journalist to give her the floor, because she seemed not to have heard well.

After that, he dropped the cane and with his right hand made a victory gesture with his fingers, while looking at the photographers with a smile.

He has been asked more about that reunion, such as what he was going to say, but Don Juan Carlos has avoided answering. He has only done it again when he has been questioned about his grandchildren or the handball game of one of them, Pablo Urdangarin, who went to see Pontevedra yesterday. “Everything great”, he has said.

The Palacio de la Zarzuela is the place where Don Juan Carlos is going to meet this Monday with his son and other members of his family, such as Queen Sofía, in what is his first visit to Spain since he left for the United Arab Emirates after uncover numerous irregularities and business abroad. The Royal House considers that it is a family meeting “in the private sphere” and will not release photos.

After his brief statements, the King Emeritus left in the car of his friend and host in Sanxenxo, Pedro Campos, to the applause of the public present to access the dock where the Rogue was moored. There he has embarked on this 12 meter long sailboat to participate in the last rounds of the Viajes InterRías trophy regatta.

The test concludes around 4:30 p.m., when the trophies will be handed out.
