Henar certainly is republican, we'll see what the judge says about the generalisation.

Henar Ortiz tweeted '#2019SinBorbones' which means 2019without the Borbobs as her New Years tweet,she's beyond embarrassing and seems to have no shame or loyalty towards her niece Letizia.

She forced her 90-year-old mother to mortgage her house for her debts, and it led to a legal mess because of her incompetence ... she's just not very intelligent and does not measure her actions... she simply wants to draw attention.

I would never have guessed she was 91. She looks good for that age

I didn't realize journalism ran in Letizia's blood. Her grandmother has had quite the career. Sad that Letizia with busy with duties, and was unable to be there for the event.

Agree! Mrs. Alvarez looks incredible for her age - I'd like to know her secrets!

Delightful and attention seeking as ever describing the Spanish 'monarchy is an obsolete and anachronistic institution' .

Sorry, but I do not agree with you. The family of Queen Letizia is not part of the royal house, they can do whatever they want. The monarchy of Spain is like the others and it is an institution that works.

I was quoting Letizia's aunt from the article you posted she has been very vocal over the years about her anti monarchist ideals.

I think before the wedding, Letizia's family - most likely including herself - were republican but it was tried to be whitewashed where possible.

Henar may be a questionable character but I certainly believe her when she says that when Letizia married Felipe she was totally naive about it and that it meant a serious alteration in the lives of the whole family. She says there was too much painful collateral damage and that the family paid a high price, what is the truth.

Henar's main problem is her mouth and doesn't seem to know when she should keep it closed I don't know if she has any sort of relationship with her niece if she was may aunt she'd be long gone from my Christmas card list.

I don't really know why; but I can see some of Princess Leonor in Paloma (I think it's the gazing expression).
