I'm so sorry, it's really sad. She certainly gave more color to this greyish world.

May God will receive her and give confort to her family.

And God bless the new Duke of Alba.

Oh this is terribly sad news - I do not think there will ever be another lady like her in Spain or elsewhere. She was extraordinary, unique, unusual - all the words that sum up one: Cayetana.

RIP . A huge figure of the Spanish nobility and probably one who will be remembered.

It is expected that Queen Sofia and Infanta Elena will visit Sevilla today to offer condolences to the family.

Absolutely. She was unique, one of a kind. The feeling today in Spain is that, with her, a whole era has died.

She will be missed indeed, but I still don't think is such a sad news. I mean, look at it: she has died at 88, at her gorgeous old sevillian palace, sorrounded by her big family and her young husband that quite probably gave her happiness during her last years, and above all after living a long, intense and impressive life. Since all we are going to die someday, this is the kind of death I guess most of us would choose if we could

RIP, Cayetana. I'm sure no one will ever take your place on people's heart.

Duchess of Alba passed away

Cayetana, Duchess of Alba, was a woman of great presence and had truly regal deportment. No one wore mantilla better than her.

May she rest in peace.
