On 30 July 2020, Prince of the Principality of New Eiffel Joost I expressed he was uninterested in ruling, and made remarks hinting at him wanting to disestablish New Eiffel. First Minister Leon Montan confirmed Joost I possessed no power to do so, which could indicate a possible attempt for Joost I to try to unconstitutionally disestablish New Eiffel.
Prince Zarel I account his wish to abdicate on 16 June. On 17 June, Joost fully confirmed he would be accepting the position of Prince. Zarel signed his abdication letter on 18 June, which was to be made official on Joost's coronation. A crown was also created for the coronation, which had to be rushed due to Zarel's short notice. The whole royal family was present - Zarel took the crown and placed it atop Joost's head, declaring him His Majesty jOOST (or Joost) the First, Second Prince of New Eiffel.
