This was the fairy tale wedding of the Infanta Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarin



Leaving aside the euphemisms used in the statement “in common agreement” issued this afternoon through the Efe agency, it is a fact that the Infant Christina and Iñaki Urdangarin separate. They take different paths five days after the photographs were published last Wednesday in the magazine ‘Lecturas’ of the former Duke of Palma walking hand in hand with his co-worker Ainhoa ​​Armentia. All the loyalty that the daughter of Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía showed him during the years of the Nóos case, has been repaid with disloyalty and, to make matters worse, in what way. We must not lose sight of the fact that he was walking quietly along a beach in full view of everyone, as if wanting to be seen with his partner.

The separation comes after celebrating -they did it last October- 24 years of that massive “yes, I want” in the cathedral of Santa Eulalia in Barcelona before the attentive gaze of 1,500 guests and the presence of representatives of 40 Royal Houses, including Harald and Sonia of Norway, Prince Albert of Monaco and Noor of Jordan, as well as King Carl Gustav and King Silvia of Sweden.

In the vicinity of the cathedral carnations were distributed to the thousands of people who wanted to come to the vicinity to see the happy couple.

The bride arrived arm in arm with Don Juan Carlos in an impressive dress, with a classic cut and boat neck, by the designer Lorenzo Caprile and with a tail 3.25 meters long. The design fit him like a glove.

Dishes for all tastes

After the emotional ceremony, the guests moved to the Pedralbes Palace, in whose gardens some tents were set up where the guests enjoyed delicious appetizers: chistorra sausage, sausage, Iberian ham, croquettes and quail drumsticks in soy sauce and chocolate. More than 300 guests and several chefs were in charge of delighting the guests, serving various menus suitable for all tastes during the meal. Among the things they tasted, quinoa with vegetables and fresh pasta, sea bass, prawn soufflé and virgin oil emulsion. For dessert, a five-story-high white chocolate cake was served, made by master pastry chef Jaime Foix.

One day before the link, the town hall held a pyrotechnic show of the Merced festivities, which the Barcelona City Council said to delay until October 3 to congratulate the bride and groom on their wedding. A dinner was also held at the Albéniz palace in Barcelona.

All this remains now as a beautiful memory of the love that, at the time, they felt for each other, as well as the four children they had as a result of their marriage. The Infanta Cristina felt a real fascination for Iñaki Urdangarin when she met him in 1996, during the Atlanta Olympic Games. Proof of that crush they felt is that they did not take a year to announce the link.
