‘I think the king did well because his father paved the way and he will pave the way for his son. The son is very well prepared, he will be an important king as his father has been.’

    Interesting how the whole interview was in English but then when he talked about the Spanish king, he switched to his native tongue. Perhaps he knew that his comments would get picked up in Spain and it was better to speak to them directly.

    Thanks for that. Still not getting daily updates through e-mail like I used to but at least I can check the website every day.

    Thank your for this, Norman, but may I add that videos starting automatically are rather annoying?
