Were ever whispers about the political implications of this marriage? The bride was significantly younger than the groom, and they did eventually get divorced, I sense that while maybe the marriage was not arranged, it was certainly a calculated step on both parties. Even though Franco had already designated Juan Carlos as successor, Alfonso could have hoped marriage to Franco's granddaughter would give him a shot at the throne (even though he was the product of an unsanctioned marriage), especially since he was the senior line of the Bourbon family. And Carmen has been known to relish in the royal spotlight.
Prince Carlos Hugo of Bourbon-Parma (err, his parents definitely) was said to have married Irene partly because of status as a reigning princess. On Irene's part, rumors were that she wanted to be a queen but she was second-born, and Carlos was a Carlist claimant to the Spanish throne. Juan Carlos was said to have given up Maria Gabriella of Savoy because Franco wanted him to marrying reigning royalty.

Was Carmen's wedding dress the last one of Balanciaga ?
Was the tiara a Franco's present ? I never saw this tiara anymore. Certainly sold.

Indeed, the couple married on March 8th and ther first son was born on November 22th , which makes 8 1/2 months. So it is safe to assume that a pregnancy was not the issue when the two got married .

Carmen Martínez-Bordiú, the woman who could have became in Queen of Spain

Do you know her? She married with Alfonso of Borbon and Dampierre of France in 1971. She was very elegant and female, her style has always been very "chic" and - despite now she´s different than in the 70´s- her life is like for a film.

Hope share nice pics from her soon!
