Although in recent days King Felipe and Queen Letizia have been seen very close, the truth is that the Spanish monarchs have gone through intense weeks of conflicts between them.
The reason for the dispute is none other than the military training that Princess Leonor will receive. Weeks ago it became known that the heiress to the Spanish throne would follow in her father’s footsteps and enter the Military Academy next September, something that has not been to the liking of Queen Letizia.
How was the fight between Queen Letizia and King Felipe?
As explained by the expert in royalty, Pilar Eyre, the kings have been in a severe crisis where fights even reach shouting. The staff working in La Zarzuela has witnessed that the discussions have gone to the top and have transcended.
The kings are not entirely in agreement with the Princess of Asturias receiving military training for three years. This has caused “tremendous discomfort,” to the point that between the monarchs they have spent “days without speaking to each other, slamming doors and shouting and everything has been heard by the staff working with them,” Eyre said.
However, it seems that this has not been the first time that the marriage of King Felipe and Queen Letizia has been in crisis. The couple, who married on May 19, 2004, has gone through many ups and downs and even once there was even talk of divorce.
