Despite this battle for this appointment, today King Emeritus, has assured the author of the book, "has always had the loyalty of all the directors, including Alberto Saiz, a pump-proof loyalty."

"Should the king come back? If I were out of your family, I would say that you think about what your family is most of it, otherwise, I am not the one to give you advice," Bono has been pronounced on the situation.
