Spanish Royals: inspiring little or no confidence in their subjects.

A staggering 85% of Spanish people believe that the royal family are somehow implicated in corruption cases and scandals.


A survey showed that 75% confess that the royal family inspires little or no confidence.


Despite this the majority of the population would not change the current state of affairs.

Sixty per cent consider the democracy to work badly or very badly in Spain.

The credibility crises that Spanish institutions and political parties are going through together with the continuous scandals that surround the king and his family have ended up weakening the royal family in the eyes of the Spanish.

The fact that 85% believe that the royal family are implicated in corruption is principally due to Iñaki Urdangarin, the king’s son in law, who currently stands accused of embezzlement, fraud, perversion of justice, lying and money laundering.

In a survey, done by Sondea Investigacion Social (social investigation surveys), of the 75% who say that the royal family inspires little or no confidence in them, their main concern is with the family itself and not the actual institution of the monarchy.

Only 45% believe that the current king should be the last one, the other 55% want Prince Felipe to continue the tradition.


  1. Why shouldn’t they be involved in corruption, everyone else is from the government down to local authorities. They might as well get in on the game as well.

  2. Article 92 of the constitution allows for a referendum. If your figures are correct, this should not pose a problem for the monarchist establishment.

    Viva la tercera Republica.
