Queen Letizia’s enemies are on the prowl. A new controversy has engulfed the Spanish consort, who has become the target of harsh accusations by a Spanish writer.
Jaime Peñafiel, a journalist specializing in the royal family and a former collaborator of the royal household, has made a series of allegations about the private life of King Felipe’s wife that call into question her reputation.
Jaime Peñafiel’s accusations against Queen Letizia
Peñafiel made some controversial statements for a podcast. During the two-hour interview, the 91-year-old journalist made a long list of criticisms against the mother of Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia.
It should be noted that he is the same writer who last November published the book “Letizia y yo” (Letizia and I), in which he reveals, among other things, the alleged affair that the consort had with her former brother-in-law, Jaime del Burgo.
Now, the same author has earned the collective repudiation after making some alleged revelations that have been described as misogynistic.
Queen Letizia affair
Among Peñafiel’s accusations are the Queen’s infertility, the alleged affair with her former brother-in-law and Letizia’s relationship with the death of her sister Érika Ortiz in 2007.
According to Peñafiel, Letizia used her sister’s eggs to conceive her daughters, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofía.
In addition, the writer assures that Letizia has separated the royal family and that she does not have a good relationship with her father-in-law, former King Juan Carlos.
He even mentioned that Queen Letizia forbade her sister Erika Ortiz to visit the Zarzuela Palace, which would have contributed to her suicide on February 7, 2007.
He also accused her of being a “violent woman” and of having several extramarital affairs.
These accusations caused a great stir and were considered a direct attack on the Queen by many users and people close to the Queen.
The Royal Household, as in the case of Jaime del Burgo’s revelations, has not commented or acted on the allegations, which put the wife of King Felipe in a delicate situation.
