King Juan Carlos has issued a public apology about his hunting sabbatical in Botswana.
The king came under fire after he trekked to Africa…while Spainards are crippled by the economy.
WWF-Spain has gotten TONS of complaints, and is considering bumping Juan Carlos off his honorary president perch.
Juan Carlos said the following in a statement:
I am very sorry. I made a mistake and it won't happen again.
Short and sweet. But he was on crutches at the time.
Royal authorities said the apology was unprecedented in royalty, and even public outcry demanded it.
They also rebuke rumors stating that he didn't tell the Spanish government about the trip.
All this for a broken hip…tough break, King Juan Carlos….
