When one of the nannies caught a fatal illness, King Mohammed VI along with his siblings flew to Madrid to “say goodbye to their beloved ‘Aunt Juanita.’” According to legend, the nanny saved their lives from rebels, seeking the end of monarchy in 1971. The story is believed to be one of the “most unknown episodes” in the King’s biography.
