What so "undignified" her Gomez-Acebo cousins have done?
As far as I remember also Princess Madeleine, Princes Eugenie and from Maria Zurita's generation Princess Martha Louise have Instagram accounts.

The problem is not having an Instagram account, but the extent to which you expose your life or that of your children in it.

The Gomez Acebo have always been seen as people a little arrogant who in some way have taken advantage of their surname. When they were young they enjoyed the lives of rich children, they have not been exceptional in academics and some have had problematic businesses.

Bruno was involved in a scandal that came to court for the sale of the house of his grandparents, also ended up in court with his cousin Luis Alfonso for not paying the rent of a house. Beltrán is involved in another urban scandal for the promotion of an urbanization that was built in a protected place. Fernando has had several confrontations with the press, has sold his life to Hola and has been caught illegally using Royal House cards to park where he wanted. They and their mother have also appeared in investigations on accounts in tax havens.

On the contrary, the Zurita have always been more discreet. Alfonso is a totally private character, and until a few months ago Maria was not exposed so much in magazines and social networks. She is also a respected professional with a company dedicated to translations.

Probably the difference is due in large part to Carlos Zurita. A serious, discreet man, a doctor with an impressive academic record, who has always cared for his blind wife. A man with great interest in culture, who is currently the President of the Association of Friends of the Prado Museum and who created a cultural foundation with his wife.

The late Don Luis Gómez-Acebo was a close friend of Baron Thyssen and also a board member of the Thyssen Bornemisza Collection Trust.

Interesting perspective; thanks for sharing lula. I haven't read many opinion articles on this side of the SRF since they don't seem to be mentioned much.
