News has jumped to the Spanish media that could shake the foundations of the Spanish Royal Family. Juan Carlos I, King Emeritus of Spain, has a secret daughter named Alejandra.
This Thursday, April 27, the Spanish newspaper El Confidencial, published the controversial story captured in the book “King Corp, the untold empire of Juan Carlos I”, an investigative work by journalists José María Olmo and David Fernández.
King Corp: Juan Carlos’ secret daughter
As a result of the marriage of the emeritus kings of Spain, Juan Carlos and Sofia, their children were born: Infanta Elena (1963), Infanta Cristina (1965), and the current king of Spain, Felipe (1968). The fourth daughter of the emeritus King Juan Carlos I comes from an extramarital relationship with an aristocrat and is said to have been born in the late seventies or early eighties.
Alejandra is married, has a son, and has never claimed any inheritance rights. Everyone at the Zarzuela Palace knows of the young woman’s existence, although it was not always so.
It should be noted that Alejandra grew up without knowing who her father really was, but when she finally found out there was a discreet rapprochement between her and the King.
Three people confirm the existence of Alejandra, the secret daughter of Juan Carlos I
- An admirer of the King emeritus who received the information directly from him about the paternity of the young woman.
- A businessman with a long friendship with the king, who has witnessed conversations between the monarch and Alejandra.
- A former boyfriend of Alejandra, to whom she informed about her relationship with the royal family.
Who is Alejandra, the unacknowledged daughter of the former King of Spain?
The unacknowledged daughter of Juan Carlos I, she was born into an aristocratic family well connected to power and had no economic difficulties in her life thanks to the privileges of her family. She did not know who her father was until her adolescence.
Alejandra’s mother was a liberal and progressive figure who frequently appeared at fashion events and magazines. It is said that Juan Carlos I made sure she had a job and a presence in the media. She also became the muse of a haute couture designer.
What about Alejandra’s life?
It is said that Alejandra followed in her mother’s footsteps and dedicated herself to fashion. She is tall, slim, and beautiful. She has lent her image to different clothing and jewelry brands. She is passionate about music, culture, and travel, and has raised a family. The authors of the book argue that giving more details about Alejandra would jeopardize her discretion.
The emeritus King Juan Carlos has survived all kinds of scandals: his mistresses, his Swiss bank accounts, his exile in Abu Dhabi, and now Alejandra, a great enigma that finally became public.
