Now that the Spanish Cortes has voted on and passed the law allowing for the abdication of King Juan Carlos I it has prepared the way for proclamation of the Prince of the Asturias as King Felipe VI on June 18. The arms borne by Felipe as Prince (left) will be replaced by the royal arms (right). It has not yet been determined what title Juan Carlos will hold or what arms he shall bear. Perhaps it will be something similar to the arms borne by his father, Don Juan? (below) Of course, Don Juan, however, had renounced his rights to the throne and, while having been for a time the Pretender to the Headship of the Royal House, was never King.
