Madrid/Palma.—Popular support for Spain’s scandal-hit royal family has climbed since 76-year-old King Juan Carlos announced his abdication a week ago, a survey showed yesterday.
Despite an outbreak of anti-royalist protests following the king’s 2 June abdication announcement, most Spaniards favour the monarchy and welcome their 46-year-old future king Felipe VI, said the poll.
Overall, 55.7 percent of those polled in the June 3-5 survey by Sigma Dos supported the institution of the monarchy in Spain, up from 49.9 percent when the same question was posed in January.
Asked whether Prince Felipe would make a good king, 72.9 percent of respondents said “yes”, the telephone poll of 1,000 adults showed.
