Spanish politicians are leaving out the figure of the kings of Spain, the most recent slight in Albert Rivera’s book on Queen Letizia confirms this.
First the veto of King Felipe in the delivery of offices to judges in Barcelona and now the politician’s book promises to generate controversy and is that in the publication ‘A free citizen’, Albert Rivera leaves King Juan Carlos in the background and not even names Queen Letizia.

Snub in Albert Rivera’s book about Queen Letizia
The book that reviews all the relevant people she has met during her career in politics, leaves out the wife of the Spanish Head of Government.
On King Felipe he does dedicate a part in which he assures that the monarch managed to connect with the Spanish and transmit tranquility and sanity “when we needed him most.”
Regarding the scandals that tarnish the Bourbons and their figure within the country’s organization, Rivera highlights:
“I do not consider myself a monarchist and I believe that the debate on the form of the State – monarchy or republic – is legitimate.”
Rivera focused on Felipe whom he praised.
“The good service to Spain that Don Felipe is doing has made many citizens of my generation more ‘felipistas’ than monarchists.”
In the publication of the ex leader of Ciudadanos, he does not cite any details about Queen Letizia despite having coincided with her in several events and having visited the Zarzuela.
