There have reportedly been death threats against del Burgo as a result of publicly sharing his claims.
In a follow-up X post, he said: “I appreciate the messages from those who have understood that I would have my reasons. I hold no grudge against those who have threatened to kill me. I don’t feel proud. But the truth is what it is.”
He finished the statement by saying the only person who can judge him is “Jesus and God”.
This isn’t the only news story that the Spanish royal family has been swept up in.
King Felipe’s father, former King Juan Carlos, is no stranger to controversy. He abdicated in 2014, and has been caught up in a series of corruption investigations. The now 85-year-old fled Spain in disgrace, and has gone to live a life of exiled luxury in Abu Dhabi, leaving his family behind. Meanwhile, his former lover has publicly accused him of hiding millions of euros.
As for how the Spanish royal family has responded to the affair allegations, they released a statement to Daily Mail, saying: “We have no comment to make about this.”
Following the reports, King Felipe and Queen Letizia put on a united front at the Annual Meeting of the Cervantes Institute held at the Royal Palace of Aranjuez. It appears the adage “don’t complain, don’t explain”, is well used by the Spanish royal family too.
