Spain royal family follows public sector wage cut
Spain's King Juan Carlos and his family are to take a pay cut following a recent bitterly contested cut to public sector wages, the royal palace says.
The king will lose 20,900 euros (£16,400; $25,660) from his salary of just over 292,000 euros a year - a cut of 7.1%.
In total, the 8.3m euro royal budget will be cut by 100,000 euros in 2012.
