A Spanish satirical magazine will be removed from newspaper stands for insulting the Royal Family.

A Spanish satirical magazine will be removed from newspaper stands for insulting the Royal Family after it depicted the heir to the throne having sex on its front cover, court officials said on Friday.

Acting on a complaint from the state prosecution office, Judge Juan del Olmo told police to collect copies of El Jueves and ordered the magazine to identify the author of a cartoon showing Crown Prince Felipe having sex with his wife, Letizia. In the cartoon, Felipe is talking about the Spanish government’s decision to pay 2,500 euros to the parents of every child born in the country in order to increase the birth rate.

“Just imagine if you end up pregnant,” Felipe says. “This will be the closest thing to work I’ve ever done in my life.”

Under Spanish law, those found guilty of insulting the Royal Family face up to two years in prison.
