Well I believe that we all already knew this was just about to happen some day, actualy the rumors started before the Princes of Asturias' wedding, but actualy I a bit surprised because the rumors were always false, and now that the Dukes were aperearing together at some events. I wish the best for them.

It's sad for the children.

It is truly sad that Dukes Lugo are to separate. I am sure that Infanta Elena exerted every effort to save her family, but did not succeed in doing it.

that's suprising. during the time of Felipe and Letizia's engagement there were many rumors that Elena and Jaime were going to wait to anounce their split until after the wedding.

that was several years ago so I had assumed that if they'd had problems they'd overcome them at this point. i guess not.

It is very sad, I do hoped rumors were not true, though everybody could tell Elena and Jaime were not happy.
I do hope the four of them will be ok.

I've read a few posts both here and on GREMB that perhaps Jaime had some issues. What were those issues? A wondering eye? Or did he have other preferences?

One reads that after Jaime had a stroke several years ago, he became more difficult to deal with and had anger issues. Some have stated that he prefers men over women and that Elena may had known this from the start.

After all these rumours since last few years I'm not surprise that happen... but it's pity specially for the kids.
I hope that doesn't mean divorce in the near future?

But in the other hand when I watch their photos together they looks strange - phisically together but spiritually separation. They are and aren't together. There's no affection between them. Like in this relationships Elena is/was the person with feelings.

This is a sad news but it seems that Jaime did not fit at all in the royalty business, just look all the pictures he looked very angry. This is life!

Oh dear! This news is sad...although I can't say I'm surprised considering the rumours that have been circulating for a number of years.

I, too, think this decision is 99% final, as I don't think they would have released a statement to the public if they weren't sure...

I hope the kids are okay!!

Such sad news, I feel so much for poor Froilán and Victoria, and Elena and Jaime as well. A seperation and divorce is not easy for anyone involved.

As a lot of people are thinking it's very sad that the Dukes of Lugo have to separe them. This news is more sadest than we can think because since quiet a long while, this news was nearby of the front page of the newspaper. Before the Princes of Asturias's wedding for instance, people was said yet that the Dukes of Lugo were going to divorce, it means that the couple had to make a great effort to try to maintain the matrimonial link and respect the affective health of their two children. I'm sure that they had done all that it was possible to maintain well their matrimonial situation. The fact that Marichalar isen't a "Prince of the blood" is whithout any importance about the difficulties for a couple today to succeed in their matrimonial situation.

This rumor has been circulating for many years. Now is official. Jaime was working in Paris, Iam not sure, I believe He is an economist. When He got married his life changed.

Sad news I agree, for a long long time we've hoped that the
rumours weren't true at all, but I think Elena is quite relieved
now. We've seen her with a different look during the last
weeks, she looked relaxed, I think because of the fact that
the decision was made. It's sad for the children, but they
have loving and caring parents and a wonderful big family
to help them with the new situation!
