Spain’s King left with black eye after walking into a door

King Juan Carlos of Spain appeared in public sporting a black eye after   “walking into a door” at his royal residence.

The 73-year-old monarch was pictured with the shiner on his left eye and a   small sticking plaster on the bridge of his nose at a reception for new   ambassadors to Spain   on Tuesday.

Royal aides said the King had received the injuries earlier in the day but   they were not serious enough to alter his schedule.

The King himself commented on the mishap: “This is what happens when one slams   into a door,” he said.

Spanish media reported that the accident was in fact the fault of a member of   the palace staff, who pushed open the door at the moment the King was   opening it from the other side.

“It was an accident and his job is not in danger” said a source at Zarzuela   Palace.
