While his former “alleged” lover, Princess Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, is blabbing to the press about how her life has become so “unbearable” after the infamous Botswana Affair broke in the Spanish press, His Majesty King Juan Carlos I of Spain is currently recovering at home after having an “…adjustment on his left hip.”
According to EFE, His Majesty checked into the USP San José Madrid Hospital on Wednesday after complaining about:
“…feeling uncomfortable. After several X-rays the doctors found that His Majesty has suffered a ‘slight dislocation’ on his left hip which was operated on last November. The issue was resolved around noon without surgery. He’s home now and resting.”
On Sunday, His Majesty will check into La Milagrosa Clinic where he will undergo yet another surgery for his herniated disc “…on the lumbosacral area of the spine.”
Poor guy. This year, so far, sure sucks for the old king.
Get better, Juan! 🙂
It seems, at least to me, that Princess Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein may have stretched the truth just a bit when she spoke to the press about her “sensitive and classified” work for the Spanish government.
This morning in a press conference the Deputy Prime Minister, Ms. Soraya Sáenz de Santamaria, denied that the “alleged” former mistress of His Majesty King Juan Carlos I of Spain “…had done any sensitive and classified assignments cited herein [by Corinna]…”
Ms. Sáenz de Santamaria goes on to state that the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Mr. José Manuel Garcia Margallo, confirmed that he was never “…aware of any official assignments…” by Princess Corinna for the Spanish government. Furthermore, the previous government also denied that the princess had done any for them.
Finally, the Izquierda Plural (a Leftist group in the Congreso de los Diputados) is now requesting that the director of the Centro Nacional de Inteligencia (CNI), General Félix Sanz Roldán, appear before the Congreso de los Diputados to address this issue as to whether or not the blonde and busty princess ever did any “sensitive and classified” assignments for the Spanish government.
So, who is telling the truth? Princess Corinna? The Spanish government? Or, did Casa Real give Princess Corinna these “sensitive and classified” assignments without informing the government (which, if true, is a stupid move on their part)?
