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

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.
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.

Maria took Carlos to the shrine Our Lady of Covadonga at Covadonga in the province of Asturias in north west Spain two days ago:

"As I promised you last year, my beloved Virgin of Covadonga, today I took my son Carlos to thank you for your life and for you to protect and guide him throughout it. I have no words to explain how important and exciting it was today. Thank you, Blessed Mother!" - Interesting to see the shrine and its surroundings, including the church:

Yes, they did! For the 13th centenary of the origins of the Kingdom of Asturias, the centenary of the Catholic Coronation of the Virgin of Covadonga, and the centenary of the establishment of the Montaña de Covadonga National Park.

On the occasion of her 80th birthday Infanta Margarita received an adaptation of "The Little Prince" in the Braille reading system. She received the gift from the Spanish National Blind Organization (ONCE) during a visit o the Museo Tiflologico located in the ONCE bibliographic building in Madrid, her husband Carlos Zurita accompanied her:

Infanta Pilar attended a commemoration marking the 50th anniversary of the death of her grandmother Victoria Eugenia of Battenberg, Queen Victoria as the wife of King Alfonso XIII. The Institute of Historical Studies of the University San Pablo CEU had organized the tribute ceremony:
