Wow... I didn't like her before, now I totally dislike her, knowing that she goes and watches this type of "show".

I'm totally against this cruelty, but for an older spanish person, this is normal and exciting. Things have changed, but the Duchess and alot of other people still find nothing wrong in bullfighting. I wouldn't hold that against her so much.

And - from what I see in this thread, she even looks decent in this pictures. She is 85 and doesn't look very healthy, so I hope she had a fun day and enjoyed herself.

I understand your point, but my parents are friends with older Spanish people, and they don't find it either normal or exciting. So, I think it's really all about taste and conscience. I'm sorry, but being so involved with animal rights issues, I just can't accept this.

By orders of 22 July 2011, doña Victoria de Medina y Conradi succeeds to her father don Luis de Medina y Fernández de Córdoba, who died earlier this year, as 10th Duchess of Santisteban del Puerto and Grandee of Spain and as 14th Marchioness of Solera.
Victoria, who is 25 years old, is the eldest of the two daughters of the late don Luis de Medina y Fernández de Córdoba (himself the second child of the Duchess of Medina-Celi) and his wife Mercedes.

Thank you Iceflower for these photographs. I am not certain about that hairstyle nor the bright turquoise blue sunglasses. Her outfit is quite pretty though and I do love the shade. Attending a bullfight? Definitely a big NO NO.
