The marriage between King Felipe and Queen Letizia faces numerous obstacles that threaten its stability. Despite rumors suggesting that the relationship is already fractured, the couple faces a new challenge.
For weeks Spanish media reports that the marriage formed by Letizia and Felipe is not going through its best moment. Pilar Eyre in her blog for the magazine Lecturas has also revealed one or the other problems of the couple.
The king and queen have made believe that they have always maintained a solid relationship, but like all couples they have had their arguments for different ways of seeing things. The last one was over Leonor’s future.
The queen did not want her daughter to comply with military training, while the king saw it as something totally obligatory. However, the biggest argument between the monarchs, which almost ended in divorce, happened in 2015, when they were splashed by the Nóos case, (for which Iñaki Urdangarin was imprisoned) and the accusations of tax fraud against Juan Carlos I were added.
King Felipe and Letizia’s separation
According to the Spanish newspaper El Nacional, the couple has distanced, but the big crisis will happen in the coming months when for the first time in 18 years, the king and queen will live alone again. The Infanta Sofia will move to Wales to study international baccalaureate at the prestigious boarding school UWC College Atlantic and Princess Leonor will do her military training in Zaragoza.
This estrangement has been evidenced by Queen Letizia’s schedule of duties for the coming months. All her events and commitments in Spain will be added to her humanitarian work around the world.
“The queen needs an outlet and these international trips allow her to escape from Felipe without having to give explanations. In this way, both will spend days apart and could be strengthened as a couple, or simply stop seeing each other, as long as it is not mandatory,” publishes the portal.
This same week, the Queen traveled to Zagreb, Croatia, to attend the opening day of the Congress on the prevention of childhood obesity organized by the World Health Organization (WHO).
