What is really behind the statement issued jointly by the Infanta Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarin announcing the “interruption of their marital relationship”? Royalty expert Pilar Eyre, has unveiled the version of the daughter of the King Emeritus of Spain.
Infanta Cristina stands firm and will not forgive her husband. “There will be no reconciliation or forgiveness,” Pilar Eyre tells the Lecturas portal.
So why wasn’t divorce discussed in the statement? The writer and blogger has the answer.
Why did Iñaki and Cristina separate?
The only reason why there has still been no talk of divorce among the former dukes of Palma is due to a legal issue:
“To get parole, Iñaki has had to argue that his residence is with his wife and underage daughter in Geneva. If the infanta spoke publicly about divorce, the negotiations would be ruined,” Eyre reveals.
Apparently, Iñaki begged Cristina not to talk about divorce and she agreed. A gesture that shows that despite everything, he does not want to harm the father of his children.
Pilar Eyre points to Iñaki Urdangarin’s lawyer as the first interested in insinuating that reconciliation is possible, something that does not enter into the plans of infanta Cristina,
“If there is no family reunification, it would be very unlikely that Iñaki would be granted a different regime than the one he has now,” the writer emphasizes.
Five days after the photos of Iñaki Urdangarin walking with Ainhoa Armentia came to light, Cristina agreed to issue that ambiguous statement reluctantly since “she wanted to communicate, not the interruption, but the end of her marriage,” Eyre said.
