When I watched the video I was in shock. Also shocked by Leonor display? She's a future Queen.

The truth, as ever, probably sits somewhere in the middle but it is uncomfortable watching. It, along with Marie Chantal's comments, certainly seem to suggest all is not well in the SRF. (Are we sure that is really MC's own twitter?!)

The video doesn’t portray anyone in a good light.
Letizia seems to want to prevent Sofia having a picture taken with her grand-daughters. Sofia looks like she’s ready to take those children away. As for Leonor I think Sofia must catch her when she trie to move Letizia out of the way which is way Leonor tries to push her off.

I mostly feel sorry for Felipe, watching his family crumble basically.

Leonor is at an age where she does not want to be treated like a little girl.

Before Letizia came, Leonor was fine and then her whole demeanor changed when her mother came.

Apparently Marie-Chantal of Greece has commented on the video somewhere saying that “no grandmother should be treated that way”.

Goodness! I don't really follow the Spanish Royal Family, so knew nothing of this supposed rift. Does anyone on the Forum know any more than is stated in the article?
I'm so shocked by the interactions between the two Queens in the video clip, and how the poor Princesses are being pulled between them. Queen Sofia looks so upset, but we can't see Queen Letitia's face. We almost NEVER see Royals behaving like this - despite what's going on behind the scenes, and often there is quite a lot, they invariably put on the smiles and good grace.
Can things really be this bad? I fear this doesn't bode well for the future of the Spanish Royal Family.

The irony of Marie-Chantal of all people criticizing Letizia is .

Felipe needs to do something about this now. It was so uncomfortable to watch.

Princess Marie Chantal should keep her mouth shut as she wasn't there in person,granted it doesn't look good and was very uncomfortable to watch.

More about Marie-Chantal's tweet. Reportedly she stated "No grandmother deserves that type of treatment! Wow she’s shown her true colours."

Princess Marie-Chantal won't be invited to Spain anytime soon ,I don't think Letizia is close with any of her Greek or Borbon relations so she probably won't care about those careless comments.

Yikes! That was not good...they should leave the kids out of any disagreement/dislike of each other.

I've read elsewherethat there is definitely a spat, there are tensions because Sophia continues to support Cristina. Sophia stays near her brother in Greece and also I think she sees a lot of members of the Greek royal family, hence MC interjecting herself into it. Not very edifying.

Hmmm I don't think so...neither girl looks fine if you look at their body language. Tense situation for sure.

What makes it even more shocking is that they had just left an Easter mass .

It's only a 15 second clip, and we don't know what was actually happening or what had happened in private, but the video was indeed very uncomfortable to watch. I don't think it was appropriate for Marie Chantal to insert herself publicly like that, but it doesn't surprise me that she's taking Queen Sofia's side. Sofia seems to remain very close with the Greek side of the family, while Felipe and Letizia seem decidedly less so. Have the Greek royals continued to support/interact with Cristina? I know that she was also very close with that side of the family, and that could also be one source of tension between the different factions. It's pretty clear that relationships have been tense in the SRF, especially since Crisitina and Inaki's scandal, but it's very sad that the girls have seemingly been caught up in it now.

No one should of spoken about it in public setting. All families have their issues...but you don't tell the world about it!

After an Easter Mass too..especially sad.
