Spanish queens’clash at church goes viral
    2018-04-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

IT seems that even royals have trouble with their in-laws on occasion as seen in new footage of the Spanish monarchs.

A video has emerged that appears to show a tense moment between Queen Letizia and her mother-in law during the Spanish royals’ annual Easter break in Majorca.

Queen Sofia looked every inch the proud grandmother as she put her arms round her granddaughters’ Leonor, 12, and Sofia, 10, ready to pose for pictures at the Palma Cathedral on Easter Sunday.

But the clip appears to show an awkward exchange between the former Queen, 79, and the reigning Letizia, 45.

The former newsreader is seen standing in front of Sofia and after a brief exchange appearing to try and take the arm of her eldest daughter, who then shoves both her mother and grandmother’s hands aside. Letizia’s husband King Felipe VI then steps in as his 80-year-old father looked on nonplussed.

Marie Chantal of Greece, who is married to Crown Prince Pavlos — King Felipe’s cousin — has since weighed in, saying on Twitter: “No grandmother deserves that type of treatment! Wow she’s shown her true colours.”

Prince Pavlos of Greece’s father King Constantine is Queen Sofia of Spain’s younger brother.

In another tweet, she asked: “What is the Spanish press saying? This is so awful.”

Appearing to stir things up even further, she then posted a photo of a family gathering with her own parents, captioned: “Happy grandparents! Family is what it’s all about.”

Several Spanish papers including island daily Diario de Mallorca had no hesitation in branding the incident a “uncomfortable.”

It said: “As is obvious from the footage, the situation was most uncomfortable for King Felipe VI, who tried to mediate as his father looked on with great surprise.”

Respected Spanish daily El Mundo said: “For the first time in four years, Juan Carlos joined the rest of the Spanish Royal Family for the celebration of the last day of Easter.

“However, the perfect harmony they demonstrated at the doors of Palma Cathedral appears not to have been so, certainly at one particular moment.”

Newspaper El Pais described what happened as a “tense scene.”
