Frank22:I have since read the book and you are right it is very good, however, i wish more would have been written in it about the King and his family in general and not focused so much on Franco and the coup.
I wonder what you think of it in regards to controversy? It is regarded as a controversial book and i would like to know your thoughts on it.

Inside it, there was an engagement ring and he just said: «Now, we will get married, o.k.»?...

To read more details, follow this link:
November 2005 Newsletter: Featuring Buckingham Palace & King Juan Carlos of Spain
That is so romantic! I must look for this book. The Beau Rivage would be hugely expensive now, but when the exchange rate was good and Dad got tax deductions for travel, I stayed there a few times with my parents. It has always been my favourite hotel since! It was just so luxurious and Lausanne is so beautiful. I had my own room which overlooked the lake.

I am very interested in Juan Carlos at the moment, but I thought that the book by Paul Preston was a bit dull so I didn't go on with it. Maybe I should give it another try?

Best Regards,

Attaining Grace

No I have not read it, but considering Peñafiel wrote it, I'm doubting it is worth reading! It is yet another controversial thing by him. This article is about the new book. Jaime Peñafiel, tajante: "La Reina ha sido una mujer engañada" - 20minutos.es
It says the King said he hated the Queen, that they do not sleep in the same bed and about the many girlfriends of the King. I guess this is yet another example of the poor man being totally bored and deciding to write some book about the King and Queen based on absolutely nothing
