Sort of a wacky story, but this is from an American gossip column:

Tempers flared at Robert Wilson and Louis Vuitton’s Watermill Center benefit. We’re told that Jaime de Marichalar, the king of Spain’s son-in-law, verbally assaulted two artists-in-residence, Cuban natives Damian Aquiles and Tania Bruguera. As dinner ended, Marichalar approached Bruguera and Aquiles and berated them because Bruguera didn’t criticize Fidel Castro during remarks she made at the start of the evening’s gala. Aquiles told the royal to mind his own business because “as a lifelong resident of Cuba,” he didn’t need anyone to tell him “what life was like on the island.” Screaming that Castro was an “assassin” and “un maricón,” De Marichalar had to be yanked away by Bianca Jagger—a friend of his wife, Infanta Elena—as Calvin Klein and Barry Diller looked on in bewilderment.

That's the first thing I thought when I saw that photo as well.. I guess his recent behavior isn't sitting well with the Royal Family.. I'm sure this just widens the rift between the too sides.

It already open

Things are getting serious . The King already is showing that he isn't happy with Jaime's attitudes.

"
Elsemanaldigital.com (19 of August)

The KING, HAPPY WITH ITS DAUGHTER
Climate of certain coldness around Jaime de Marichalar

The arrival to Palm of Infant Doña Elena and her children Victoria and Froilán has been received with satisfaction by Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía. Finally all the Royal Family is united.

Doña Elena, after a very hard year, extremely thin, returns to smile and to be happy and relax with her parents, brothers and nephews. Safe sources of Palm assure nevertheless that after the cordiality climate whereupon the Dukes of Lugo have been received feels certain coldness around Jaime de Marichalar.

The same sources assure that His Majesty the King unites to his character frank and opened to an enormous seriousness in the commitments and the responsibility that must assume all the members that represent or have relation with the crown. At Marivent information of outlandish behaviors have arrived by diverse conduits of the Duke of Lugo. It rains on dunked. Jaime de Marichalar, assures these sources, has put in front in several occasions their particular agenda to their presence in important acts next to their wife.

In Palm it has also surprised the absence of the Dukes of Lugo in the greater regata of the Mediterranean that turns to the Club Nautical of Palm the sport and social capital of the Mediterranean. Why refused the Duke of Lugo to attend next to his family? The marriage, after difficult months, with the painful episode of the loss of the baby who waited for the Infant, went next to the first social act which they have been attending for many months.

The Dukes of Lugo presided over the delivery of trophies of the equestrian match Infant Elena who from the past day 13 disputed itself in the club of Are Molina. Once concluída the test, the Infant gave some of the trophies to the riders and winning horses. She, more smiling, although something nervous before the presence of means. He, distant, distrustful, and sometimes opposed before the insistence of photographers and journalists.

The Duchess of Lugo, that arrived at the island Thursday the past, next to its husband, Jaime de Marichalar, and her two children, Victory Federica and Froilán, made therefore one of the first public appearances after the abortion that underwent the 25 of June in Madrid. After losing to that third son had been his, Infant and Jaime de Marichalar returned to New York, where the Duke of Lugo recovers of the cerebral spill that suffered at the end of year 2001.

Finally with the arrival of the Dukes to the island the list of members of the Royal Family is completed that spend the summer in Majorca. Prince Felipe the past divided Thursday for Asuncio'n, to attend the taking of possession of Nicanor Duarte, new president of Paraguay. After interrupting its vacations again, now reincorpora next to all the Royal Family. On the other hand Infant Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarín, Dukes of Palm, returned to Majorca after spending days in the Pyrenean one next to their three children, Juan, Pablo and Miguel.

Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía missed to Victory Federica and Froilán. Now they are enchanted of which the five grandsons are together again. It is possible to be seen in addition Don Juan Carlos and Doña them Sofía, indicates sources next to the Palace of Marivent, very affectionate with Infant Elena. Nevertheless a certain coldness, contained is observed and disguised of the King with the Duke of Lugo, they reiterate these sources. In Palm one makes sure that something is had broken in chemistry between father-in-law and son-in-law although by both parts keeps the forms scrupulously. But who know the Duke well they indicate in addition that it has gone forced too marine Palm again whose atmosphere seems to him distinguished little and.

But Jaime de Maricharlar, after a year of familiar tensions that has not been able to hide, knows that in the next days he is going to confront a hard examination on the part of means, more and more implacable with him before his rudeness, distrusts and sometimes elementary lack of courtesy.

Great translation! I'm not too sure all of that was right though, didn't Elena go through a miscarriage? Not an abortion? Wow, someone should get Jaime a Happy Meal. What's with his long face? Come along, I've never seen any photos in which he looks very happy, I mean Inaki looks happy in all the pictures of him and his sons. So...are the Dukes of Lugo separated? ...eh?

Thank you for the translation, xicamaluca. It was very informative. But how sad and stressful for Elena if there is a strain between her and Jaime, Jamie and his in-laws? And the strain that Froilan and Victoria Frederika must feel, too.

Do you think this story will bring back the stories that would crop up every now and then of Jaime and Elena not really being a love match, but a marriage of convenience? I recall reading a story in Royalty or Majesty several years ago on Elena. The story talked about how she was madly in love with an equestrian but for some reason they could not be married. After the break up, Elena went to what they termed a "fat farm." She then met Jamie and was feeling pressured (because of her age) to get married and start a family and so she "settled" for Jamie.

And of course, there are always the rumours that Elena and Jaime have a marriage of convenience rather than one of love like Cristina and Inaki's.

Well, I hope this blip in the family passes over soon, if not for Elena's sake (what a tough year she has had&#33 then for Froilan and Victoria Frederika's sake. Children always sense more than adults tell them.

Between her and Princess Cristina, she dresses more fashionably because as what I have observed, Cristina's dresses have simple designs compared to hers. I really like her dresses.
