We understand that regattas are more important.
Jesús Ortiz and Paloma Rocasolano are also maternal grandparents of their other granddaughter: Carla Vigo, first cousin of the daughters of kings, daughter of the deceased Erika Ortiz. Why wasn’t she there?
It is true that Leonor and Sofía have other equally close cousins, such as the children of the Infanta Cristina, but these young people do not live in Madrid.
