Becoming queen consort after the abdication of Juan Carlos, Letizia of Spain quickly earned a place in the hearts of the Spaniards and within the monarchy. At 50, celebrating this Thursday, September 15, the former journalist can be proud of her career given the many difficulties she has faced since her marriage to Felipe VI. One of these dates back to 2018 and was probably one of the biggest scandals you have ever experienced.
At the time, the entire royal clan gathered in the cathedral of Palma de Mallorca to celebrate Easter mass, a tradition. Upon leaving the office, photographers do not miss a crumb of this family reunion where, visibly, tensions are at their peak. At least that’s what the pictures show.
The former Queen Sofia takes advantage of the meeting with her two granddaughters, Leonor and Sofia, to be photographed with her. Letizia of Spain therefore seems to intervene to stop him and reject the hand of her mother-in-law. The sequel doesn’t help her business. On the square, after a kiss placed on the temple of one of her young women by her grandmother, Queen Letizia passes her hand in the same place. Her guesses are going well, coming to her to imagine her mother erasing the trace of her kiss.
It didn’t take more to ignite the Web, suspecting considerable tensions between the queen and Felipe VI’s mother. What put Letizia in an annoying position: “I spoke to Queen Letizia before, she is worried and quite devastated by this situation. She is very involved in the education of her daughters, in the protection of their image, she is attentive to those who photograph them, she cares about where they come from, who approaches them … she is a very maternal reaction“said Inma Aguilar, a close friend of the queen. She then continued:”It’s nonsense, it’s not a serious problem, nothing has happened. Just a spontaneous gesture. […] She is a person who is very involved in her work, her profession, the role she plays and, as a mother, with her daughters. She feels hurt, worried and very hurt. Letizia cannot speak or explain herself. She is an easy target. ” A consistent support for a weakened queen with whom relations with Sofia finally seem to be in good shape!
