Several minutes before that, the abdicated King Juan Carlos I handed to the new king the red sash, the regalia of commander-in-chief of the country’s armed forces.
Juan Carlos I announced his decision to abdicate in favor of his son Felipe June 2. The king explained his decision by the need to hand over responsibilities to the new generation.
