they were close friends. However, the enmity between Marie-Chantal and Letizia caused King Felipe VI himself to distance himself from one of his most loyal confidants, Pablo de Grecia.

Therefore, Queen Letizia kept a
very distant attitude during acts of homage to King Pablo (father of Queen Sofía and grandfather of King Felipe) on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his death and refused to
accompany Don Felipe at the party he prepared
Marie-Chantal to her husband Paul from Greece for his 50th birthday. Two facts that the Greek princess would not forgive her and for which she would take revenge in the worst possible way.

What no one expected was that Marie-Chantal would take advantage of a moment of Letizia’s public weakness to
throw her to the lions. Digital, to be exact. “No grandma deserves this kind of treatment. Wow she (Letizia) showed her true colors,” the Greek princess wrote in

This doubt will be resolved at Westminster Abbey, London, where the two will attend the
Memorial Mass for the Duke of Edinburgh, died last year. A meeting during which, make no mistake,
Marie-Chantal starts with an advantage. British by birth, the whole family lives in the English capital and Pablo’s Greek wife maintains a
excellent relationship with all members of the British royal house and does not hesitate to use his Instagram account to advertise it.

Marie-Chantal, the princess who will never reign
While Letizia is queen, the wife of Pablo de Grecia can never say the same. And this is where another of the conflicts between the two arises.
Does Marie-Chantal envy the arrival to the throne of Doña Letizia? Surely. Because even if she managed to carve out a place for herself as
