Iñaki and Cristina decide to “interrupt” their marriage relationship

The reaction of the couple, who attended the last pages of their story, came a few days later. The following week began on Monday with a concise statement that marked the line that they were going to follow in the most difficult year of their lives. “By mutual agreement, we have decided to end our marriage relationship. The commitment to our children remains intact. Since it is a private decision, we ask for the utmost respect from everyone around us. Cristina de Borbón and Iñaki Urdangarin”, a few words, especially the term “interrupt”, which were reminiscent of that “temporary cessation of cohabitation”, with which the Infanta Elena and Jaime de Marichalar announced their separation.

Each for his part, tried to return to normality after the initial shock that the news had produced. Everything was speculation, while Iñaki and Ainhoa ​​returned to the law firm in the middle of a cloud of cameras. “Things happen and we are going to manage them in the best possible way”, were the first words of the ex-duke after the photos of Readings and the statement.

Almost a month and a half later, Letizia’s sister-in-law stepped forward and chose Lecturas, very interested in giving her version to settle the speculation that she was going to return to her husband. She reached the lapidary sentence: “There will be no reconciliation or forgiveness.” And that is how it has remained a year later, when the divorce process that began in the spring of 2022 is still underway. “At the moment she saw the photos, at that moment, all respect and affection for Iñaki ended. (…) What hurts her the most is that she tells herself that she is going to forgive him when it is not true, that is why she has broken her silence.”wrote Pilar Eyre, who faithfully conveyed the message that King Felipe’s sister wanted to give.

With a very clear conscience, her top priority at all times has been her children, and all the steps she has taken have been taking into account their emotional stability and that this strictly marital matter does not affect them on a day-to-day basis. The same tranquility has guided her in her decision to continue wearing the wedding band, which she has continued to display in the extraordinary reunion of almost all the members of the royal family in the last farewell to Constantine of Greece, the queen’s brother. Sofia. “I have been wearing the ring for almost twenty-five years and I will continue to wear it until I get divorced. I have not failed”were his exact words about it.
