Quote:

The duchess with everything (except the right to marry)

She's a fabulously wealthy Spanish royal with more titles than Queen Elizabeth. But the Duchess of Alba's hopes of marrying her toyboy have been vetoed – by her children. Elizabeth Nash reports
Monday, 29 September 2008

The Duchess of Alba, the grandest grandee in Spain, is said to be able to cross the country from north to south without leaving her estates, and possess as many titles as the Queen of England and of higher rank.

But despite wealth and her bluest of blue blood, Maria del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James Stuart y de Silva, 82, is being denied her heart's desire after her children scotched her plans to marry an antique dealer 24 years her junior. Furious at their opposition, the feisty duchess plans to petition Spain's Queen Sofia to intercede in her favour.
The House of Alba fears for the safety of a sumptuous patrimony should the twice-widowed duchess marry a third time. The duchess is mistress of a fabulous collection of estates, palaces and artworks, including portraits by Goya of an illustrious antecedent said to have been the artist's lover.

Duke of Marmalade 09-30-2008 09:34 AM

Bunte (print - can't provide a link) of this week claims that King Juan Carlos did not give permission for the marriage to go ahead as he still has the right to approve or disapprove of marriages for members of the spanish nobility. This brings him into hot waters as divorce might be a topic on the agenda of his own daughter Elena.

Zonk 09-30-2008 11:00 AM

I am fairily new in all things that have to do with the Spanish Royals, but WOW!

The King has the power to disapprove or approve this union? Is the Duchess in line for the throne?

lula 10-04-2008 08:38 AM

This history has very entertained to the press of the gossip in Spain.

I do not believe that the King interferes in the weddings of the Spanish nobles, but in this case, it can be that the children of the Duchess driven to despair with the attitude of their mother have tried that helps them. Now they say that the Duchess has decided to ask the Queen for audience. But they are things of the press, which nobody knows if they are true or not.

Alba's House is the most important nobility family of Spain, which has a major number of nobility titles and a great patrimony. Cayetana always has been a woman advanced to her time and rebel. It is not necessary to forget that her second marriage was also polemic because her husband had been a jesuit priest.

The Duchess has 82 years, her boyfriend Alfonso 56. The Duchess has a delicate health, has many difficulties to walk and in many occasions uses wheelchair . Some information says that her mental health is not perfect either.

It is normal that the children do not agree with the attitude of their mother, because she is their mother and for what represents Alba's House, or that they have doubts on the intentions of this boyfriend.

Sometimes people have to be saved from themselves....
Has anyone heard that Jaime Marichilar has contracted a lawyer to ensure that he continues to be considered the son-in-law of the sovereign in case of divorce? I read this in what is quite often an unreliable magazine.
I don´t know much about this but I thought that the divorce wouldn´t affect the social relationship of the divorce/ee. I remember reading a question about law when a woman complained that the second wife of her husband had time off from work to attend the husband´s mother´s funeral. She thought the ex-wife didn´t have the right to claim her as her mother-in-law and the answer was that although she was divorced from the husband the in-laws remain exactly that....in-laws. If this is true Jaime Machilar wouldn´t have to bother getting a lawyer about it.

Spanish duchess forbidden from marrying toy boy by children - Telegraph

Not sure that Queen Sofia is the right person to address a petition to in case of the Duchess of Alba.

Menarue 10-07-2008 08:46 AM

Not a good person to address the petition to at all. I have a feeling the Duchess of Alba will be a little disappointed by the response or no response she will get from the
Queen.
An antique dealer? All those priceless antiques filling the Palaces belonging to the House of Alba? Perhaps the Alba offspring haven´t made the right decisions in the past but to prevent this happening shows that at least in this case they are showing very good sense.

The Duchess of Alva went to see HM the Queen at 10.30 AM. The goal was to get support for her marriage plans ... Hola article here.

donnaK 10-16-2008 08:12 PM

I agree with Lula. The King had never told the Duchess to stop marrying again, he was only there making peace between the Duchess and her children. The children are afraid of their mother being taken advantage of since she can't even think straight now.

Spanish nobles rebel over inheritance law | World news | The Guardian
Quote:

They once helped create an empire that spanned the globe, but now members of the Spanish aristocracy are engaging in a more prosaic struggle over whether their titles should be inherited by women.

A group of grandees and other nobles have rebelled against a recent change in Spain's law which prevents a son from claiming the family title if he has an elder sister. They are demanding that the country's constitutional court strike the law down, as it may allow some women to claim titles retroactively from brothers or uncles who currently hold them.
