Nati Abascal is the ex-wife of the late Duque de Feria - the one who went to prison for kidnapping.

For some reason I thought that the duke de Feria had daughters, but, now that I think of it he has sons.... do we have any pictures?

Also the Duquesa de Medinacelli has two granddaughters, her eldest sons daughters, one named Victoria Euginia I believe and the other I can't remember, do we have any photos of them? Were they candidates for the Prince of Astrius?

Please help.

Yes, Nati Abascal is indeed the ex-wife of the duke of Feria and she has two sons: Rafael and Luis.
Here you have a couple of photos of them. The first one is from the funeral of her mother, Natividad Romero Noriega, where you can see her accompanied by the eldest son, Rafael.

Hola!..I know all the members of Rey Juan Carlos' familia but I'm not familiar with the other members of the Spanish familia real (their extended family), therefore, I am asking anyone who knows here especially the spanish members about the Dukesa de Alba ( Duchess of Alba)...coz I always see her at Spanish news..Is she a de Bourbon?..I think she's a popular figure in Spain as I always see her on celebrity news..I just cant understand the news about her coz the show is in spontaneous Spanish language..

The Duchess of Alba is neither member of the Royal Family nor a Borbón. She is the most important aristocrat of Spain, is one of the women with more pertaining to nobility titles of the world, and a good fortune. Alba's Duchy has an antiquity of centuries.

Los Alba they are not a Royal House, are a Ducal House. In Spain it is not the same thing. The Spanish aristocracy has dukes, counts and Marquesses. But the Kings are over all of them.

The duchess of Alba has 35 nobiliary headings.
Jaime Peñafiel criticized the simple fact of the Duchess of Alba to have done a courtesy to Letizia in the previous night to the real marriage, because in this night letizia was not princess and the duchess of alba kneel itself before the granddaughter of a taxi driver.

Oh, she's a Spanish aristocrat..Lula, thanks for that information..Its interesting to know that there are famous Spanish aristocrats..I have heard that Infanta Elena's esposo, Jaime de Marichalar, is an aristocrat,I think he's a son of a duke-something like that..

Jaime de Marichalar is a son of the Counts of Ripalda, his father died and today in day the Count of Ripalda is the major brother of Jaime.
The majority of the titles of the aristocracy have centuries of the Antiquity, the Kings were delivering them to the persons who were serving to the state, in the past one was giving the title and a few properties.

At present it has got lost. The King delivers titles of an honorific way, but that do not go I obtain neither no property nor economic benefit. The titles they are delivered to persons who do a service to the (state. For example, prime ministers, the exchief of the Royas House or persons that it is considered that they do big contributions to the culture, how the Nobel prize Camilo Jose Cela.
The titles were inherited the major son male, until this year that the law has changed. The Duchess of Alba inherited it because she was the only daughter.

It they are bilges that some journalists say how Peñafiel, but it is not true.
She has very much titles, but the title of major range is that of duchess and therefore the Kings and Princes are over her. In the protocol the place it does not give the number of titles but the importance of these.

Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, would never curtsey to anyone. She is a queen...maybe not of Spain, but nonetheless a queen. She, or any HRH, HGDH, HIH, HH, HSH, do not curtsey to anyone who is not royal without the titular dignity of such. There is a big difference between being royal and aristocratic like the Duchess of Alba, no matter how old or how many titles she has.

The De Alba family seems sometimes like the secondary royal family in Spain, without being royals.

Well, they are practically the last aristocracy left in Spain and their lifes have been plagued by scandals (unlike the RF ) so the tabloids adore them and they are every week in the media one way or another
