The Spanish monarchy could be set for crisis mode as King Felipe VI is reportedly "crushed" over Queen Letizia's alleged affair. Her Majesty was spotted dressed down in a lightly-colored lavender suit with white sneakers at the annual call for applications for the Social Projects of Banco Santanderâ in Madrid, Spain, on Tuesday, June 11.

The Queen of Spain was all smiles at the event.

According to the book Letizia's Silences by Spanish journalist Jaime Peñafiel, which was released recently, it is alleged that during a visit to New York in 2011, the then-Princess of Asturias renewed her relationship with Jamie del Burgo, described as her "lover."

Peñafiel suggested that Felipe was well aware of Letizia's alleged infidelity, as her security detail was required to keep him informed of her movements in real-time.

Queen Letizia dressed down for the event in a light lavender suit with plain, white sneakers.

"Love. I wear your pashmina. It's like feeling you by my side. It takes care of me. It protects me. I count the hours until we see each other again. Love you. Get out of here. Yours," del Burgo shared on his X account of an alleged letter the future queen once sent to him. He has since deleted the post.

He claims to have met and started a relationship with Letizia when she was a journalist in the years leading up to her marriage to Spain's king-in-waiting in 2004. He went on to claim that he and the princess-to-be had dinner the evening before her wedding day, where she reportedly told the entrepreneur to "never leave me," despite being betrothed to another. Jaime del Borgo went on to marry the Queen's sister, Telma, in 2012, before their divorce in 2014.

On June 19, 2014, King Juan Carlos I abdicated Spain's throne, and his son and heir immediately became King Felipe VI at that moment. Letizia was now the nation's Queen Consort and went on to become popular with the Spanish people in her husband's near decade-long reign. The couple have two daughters, Leonor, Princess of Asturias, and heiress to the throne, as well as the Infanta Sofia.

Royal insiders at Spain's Royal Palace of Madrid claim the King and Queen are 'acting for the public for the sake of the Crown.'

The entrepreneur has faced a firestorm of criticism since making his claims. In December 2023, he shared how he received death threats since coming forward with his allegations.

"I don't change a comma of my deleted posts," he stated on his social media account. "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. I recognize only one king in heaven, and his name is Jesus of Nazareth. He will judge me."

Neither the King nor the Queen has made any public comment on the claims by Her Majesty's former brother-in-law.

A recent affair scandal also surrounded the now King Frederik X and Queen Mary of Denmark.
