Corinna was already giving interviews, every time she talks she burns even more.
Comparing yourself to Wallis Simpson or Meghan is just ridiculous.

Sounds like she's doing a panorama type interview showing this Friday, 23rd October 2020.

Corinna sounds like she's after her 15 minutes of fame to me.

A True Royalty TV original: The Rise and Fall of the King Juan Carlos.

Including the first ever TV interview with King Juan Carlos’ former mistress, Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, documentary follows the King’s tumultuous rise to power and his scandalous fall from grace.

Thank you Blog Real, a lot that Corinna says about the family (JC's dislike of Letizia, the separate lives of the Kings, his multiple affairs, Inaki and Cristina, the assumed knowledge of the casa Noos), has been public knowledge anyway for many years and is therefore credible, some things you can believe or not believe, like the conspiracy for abdication, or the family trying to shut her up, but nothing of what she says sounds too far fetched only to paint herself in a favorable light.

I always thought the marriage was similar to Princess Margaret and Tony Armstrong-Jones; both marriages started to unravel fairly quickly.

Nevertheless, her attempt to portray herself as a righteous victim is rather odd when she is the one who may be under possible criminal investigation.

I am also skeptical of her alleged knowledge of the inner workings of the Royal House and the Royal Family (including Iñaki, Letizia, etc.)

Corinna has been so far quiet on Letizia lets hope it stays that way.

Interesting to see Corinna talk, always such a difference from judging people only from photos. Although we probably all formed our opinion about her, she appears to be quite articulate and intelligent in her responses.

She is certainly an articulate and intelligent woman. Her career aside, she managed to get 65 M euros transferred to her. You don't achieve that by being dumb!

It is interesting that the Spanish interviewer felt it necessary to ask Corinna if Juan Carlos had spoken to her about how he felt about Felipe "marrying a journalist", to which Corinna answered the King was "pretty much against it in the beginning" and, accordingly, that Letizia's early years in the Royal Family must have been "difficult".

Regardless of JC's opinion, it is surprising that, even today, being a commoner and a professional woman is still held against Letizia by the Spanish press itself.

Although a big part of if, I don't think Queen Letizia's background is the only way to explain people's dislike of her. Spanish media is notoriously vile and this coupled with Catalonian separatism and a large republican sentiment amongst the population probably has created the perfect storm regarding Letizia's popularity. It's always been their custom to go after the Royal women. Something made easier by Juan Carlos' open dislike for Letizia and his many affairs that affected people's perception of his wife. Don't forget that both Spanish media and a large part of the Spanish population hated Queen Sofia for many years. Ridiculing her for her Greek accent, looking down on her for preferring to socialise with her relatives instead of with the Spanish aristocracy, going after her for her dislike of bullfighting, whispers about how a more hot blooded woman would have been able to keep her husband at home etc...

The media in Spain has also fed a "pushy parent" image of Letizia, I remember reading articles about apparent cases where she has publicly argued with parents from Leonor's class at the time (the usual "a source said"!). It's similar to Meghan's persona in the media - she's being portrayed as bossy and controlling, though we will never know what the royals "real" personality is.

How exactly did Sofia manage to transition from ridiculed to beloved?

I don’t understand why she keeps speaking so publicly about issues that could come back to bite her in the event of an investigation. Surely any decent lawyer would tell a client in Corinna’s situation to stop talking publicly about these matters and, going forward, to say nothing that hasn’t first been cleared by the legal team?

I think she probably knew about some things - I don’t find it hard to believe her when she says that JC paid for everything for his adult children, (Felipe included), for example. And no doubt she heard lots of pillow talk about how JC currently felt about the family, his children, their spouses, etc. But she had no relationship with JC’s family members, no first hand experience of the family dynamics and therefore no way to add context to whatever JC decided to tell her.

As a born royal Sofia was well trained for her position, she put in the hard work, did her job for Spain with a lot of empathy and without complaining despite difficult conditions (young and vulnerable monarchy, ETA terror, JC's womanizing), a good mother - many applaud her for grooming Felipe so well for his kingship (Felipe's nickname: El Preparado) - and of course a doting grandmother for all her grandchildren. From 'La Griega' to a Queen who can do no wrong, that is quite an achievement.
