Iñaki Urdangarin and Ainhoa ​​Armentia can now get married: Infanta Cristina formalizes the divorce

Last March we said that Ainhoa ​​Armentia and her husband began to formalize their divorce shortly after it came to light that Iñaki Urdangarin and the Basque woman were lovers. After 20 years of marriage, the father of his children did not take even a week to initiate the formal breakup of his marriage after discovering that his wife was having an extramarital relationship with none other than the husband of Infanta Cristina.

It was last October 17 when we announced for the first time that the daughter of Don Juan Carlos and Urdangarin would sign their divorce before the end of the year. We found out thanks to a secret conversation that we caught with Infanta Elena. Just a few weeks later, the exclusive is confirmed: the Emeritus' first-born daughter was right. Her little sister is finally going to formalize the divorce from the father of her four children, all of them of legal age, after Irene, her youngest, turned 18 last summer.

The Infanta and Iñaki Urdangarin are even preparing a statement to announce their divorce, according to journalist Silvia Taulés in Vanitatis this Wednesday. Juan Carlos I has been the essential advisor throughout this long process and Felipe VI, as head of the House, has already been informed.

The divorce agreement forces the Infanta to financially support the man who deceived her

Let us remember that in February 2022 Cristina and her husband announced their formal separation, what Elena and Marichalar initially called “temporary cessation of coexistence”, a temporary period that lasts until today. “By mutual agreement, we have decided to interrupt our marital relationship,” read the statement from Pablo Urdangarin's parents.

The divorce agreement forces the Infanta to financially support the man who cheated on her. Let us remember that Iñaki barely has more income than the pension of just over 400 euros that he receives after having been in prison, like all prisoners who do not work. Some sources place this financial support at 3,000 euros per month while certain media outlets raise it. The document is secret and has not been leaked so far.

How we discovered that they would divorce before the end of the years: Infanta Elena, the best source

The second week of October, the Infanta Elena And your daughter Victoria Federica They went separately to the Madrid premiere of Paco Arango's latest film.

The niece of Philip VI She arrived with her friend Rocío Laffón, and was distant and uncommunicative. But on the other hand, her mother, unlike that time when she demanded that the reporters call her Doña Elena, showed her best smile, accompanied by the director of the film.

Victoria Federica did not want to speak but Doña Elena did, and praised how “complicated” it seemed to put herself in the shoes of the character of Carmen Maura, a sick woman who has little time left to live and enters the body of a recently deceased to fulfill one of his last dreams, going to the Canary Islands with his daughter (Olivia Molina).

Urdangarin and Ainhoa ​​Armentia are free to formalize their relationship

They leaked to us that Infanta Elena did speak, although in private, with at least one person attending the gala, an almost secret conversation, in the ear, between whispers, which was partly dedicated to her sister Cristina. In this sense, they told us that Froilán's mother privately assured that her sister and her brother-in-law Iñaki Urdangarin will sign the divorce “in a matter of weeks.” Elena also explained that Cristina hoped to meet in Madrid on the 31st with her father, King Juan Carlos, after Princess Leonor's swearing in of the Constitution and the subsequent celebration of her 18th birthday, which will be celebrated in El Pardo. That's how it happened, actually.

Doña Elena told the person with whom she thought she was speaking without anyone hearing her that once Cristina's meeting with the Emeritus takes place, the lawyers of her sister and Iñaki Urdangarin will close the final financial agreement prior to the signature before a notary that will attest to the end of the marriage. “In a matter of weeks,” she repeated. “But surely before the end of the year,” she said. Everything confirmed. Now Iñaki Urdangarin and Ainhoa ​​Armentia are free to formalize their relationship. Will we have a wedding, even if it is civil?
