Duke, I think the VIP lounge mentioned by Carlota was right after the death of Erika. If the paparazzis hadn't been harrassing Telma, she would not have to hide in the VIP lounge. I had seen footages of Telma at the airport before Erika's death, she was like any other regular passenger waiting at the line to check in. As I know, the only time she and Erika used Varela's design was at the wedding of the Princes, at the baptisms of their nieces, both wore their own clothes. You pretty much can spend 1/3 of the money to buy the same quality clothes as Varela's. Paloma and the late grandma (she probably had a hard time to buy formal clothes because of her shape) were the ones wearing Varela's clothes at the baptism of Leonor or Sofia, neither was complaining about the press.
The Spanish courts simply can't handle such a general case sueing against all the tabloids. Telma would have a better chance to win if she had sued a particular media outlet.

I wonder why this was too difficult for Telma's lawyers to figure out. It's the usual and logical way to deal with such an issue.

it's mentioned a bit earlier in this thread. allegedly the princes came up with the topic when speaking to journalists on informal occasions asking for their opinion and expressing their support for Telma's decision.

i trust the judges did what was expected.
That's right, IMO. Thelma also had a special treatment at the hospital when she gave birth to her daughter.

I never thought Thelma was being harrassed by the media. The only thing they said about her was that she was dating Prince Albert of Monaco, and later they said Felipe's old friend was her new boyfriend.

She spends most of her time outside Spain, so it's difficult to understand why she complains so much.
You don't see Mathilde's sister complaining like this.

The photographers did chase her down the streets whenever she stepped out of her house during the few months she spent in Spain. They even took pictures of her at her grandma's garden. That's pretty much unheard of in other countries, not even the British paparazzis harrassed Diana's parents or siblings on their daily life. Diana, Letizia or Mathilde was/is the one who chose to marry their prince, not their parents or siblings. It seems that the Spainsh paparazzis were the only ones out there who didn't understand or didn't want to.
Anyway, the good thing out of this lawsuit is that the press no longer harasses Letizia's mother or grandpa during their daily life, that's already a 'win' for Telma IMO.

I couldn't agree more.
