Controversy Surrounds Spanish Royal Family Amid Affair Allegations

Accusations Rock the Spanish Royals

The former King of Spain finds himself embroiled in controversy amidst accusations suggesting his involvement in spreading rumors regarding an alleged affair between Queen Letizia and her former brother-in-law.

Businessman Jaime Del Burgo made startling claims, asserting a romantic relationship with Letizia before and after her marriage to King Felipe.

Del Burgo later married Letizia’s sister, Telma Ortiz, from whom he is currently separated. The Spanish Royal Family has refrained from commenting on these allegations.

Stirring Up Controversy

In a surprising turn of events, a veteran Spanish journalist accused supporters of the former king, who has been distanced from the royal family, of orchestrating a ‘campaign’ against his son, King Felipe VI. Radio host Federico Jiménez Losantos pointed to Juan Carlos’s circles as the instigators behind this alleged campaign, adding to the tumultuous situation surrounding the Spanish monarchy.

Background and Reign of Juan Carlos

Juan Carlos reigned as King of Spain from 1975 to 2014 before abdicating in favor of his son Felipe VI.

The official reason for his abdication was attributed to his age, but subsequent controversies led to speculations of external pressures influencing his decision to step down and safeguard the monarchy’s reputation.

Del Burgo’s Claims and Social Media Posts

Amidst the scandal, Del Burgo, currently residing in the UK, contributed to a revealing book titled “Letizia y Yo (Letizia and I),” alleging a romantic involvement with Queen Letizia.

He shared a selfie purportedly taken by Letizia during one of her pregnancies, citing it as ‘evidence’ of their relationship. Del Burgo claimed the black pashmina worn by Letizia in the photo belonged to him and posted a message, supposedly sent by the Spanish Queen, expressing affection and longing.

Doubts and Reactions

Following Del Burgo’s assertions, skepticism emerged among X users regarding the validity of his claims, especially concerning the photo and accompanying message allegedly from Queen Letizia.

Despite the entrepreneur’s assertions, there exists no concrete evidence verifying the authenticity of the photo or the message’s origin.

Divorce and Fallout

Jaime Del Burgo, a father-of-two, mutually divorced Letizia’s sister in 2016, four years post-marriage and two years after their separation, further adding to the intricate web of relationships and controversies within the Spanish Royal Family.
