Spaniards Protest Against Former King Amid Corruption Allegations

Spaniards demonstrated against the monarchy Saturday as allegations of corruption against former King Juan Carlos, King Felipe's father, continue to mount.
Felipe had already renounced any inheritance from his father when the corruption allegations surfaced in mid-March.
He has also ended Juan Carlos’ palace allowance.
In June, Spain's Supreme Court initiated an investigation into the former king’s involvement in a high-speed rail contract with Saudi Arabia after Switzerland's La Tribune de Geneve newspaper reported Juan Carlos had received $100 million from the late Saudi king.
Juan Carlos has repeatedly declined to comment on the allegations.
