This Tuesday, April 5, Prince Charles was very tactile with Letizia of Spain during their visit to the castle of Auckland, north-east England.
Their reunion was very warm. This Tuesday, April 5, Queen Letizia went to the northeast of England to open an exhibition dedicated to Spanish culture in the residence of the bishops of Durham. For her visit to Auckland Castle, the companion of the King of Spain was able to count on the presence of Prince Charles who accompanied her throughout her visit. Visibly very happy to find it, he was very tactile. It is with a kiss followed by a kiss on his hand that the companion of Camille Parker Bowles greeted the mother of Leonor and Sofía.
Together, the duo discovered the exhibition entitled Zurbarán, the Twelve Tribes of Israel: Jacob and his Sons, which “allows you to discover the paintings of Francisco de Zurbarán,” reports the website Histoiresroyales.fr. Letizia of Spain then presided over the opening ceremony of the Spanish Gallery of Bishop Auckland. A gallery dedicated “to the promotion of Spanish culture and will be an important source of academic study on the pictorial history of the golden age of Spanish art.
Letizia of Spain and Prince Charles still very close
This cultural outing comes a week after the Queen of Spain and her husband went to Westminster to attend the ceremony in memory of Prince Philip, a year after his death. While this rapprochement between the two crowned heads may come as a surprise, it’s not the first time they’ve been tactile.
In March 2019, Prince Charles and the former journalist of 49 years had already appeared very complicit. Receiving her for the opening of an exhibition devoted to the Spanish post-impressionist painter Sorolla at the National Gallery, Harry and William’s father was particularly playful. If they are so close, it is certainly because the two royal families are also close since Juan Carlos and his wife Sofia are cousins of Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
