In a post on X on Dec. 26, Del Burgo reposted an undated selfie of Queen Letizia, taken during one of her pregnancies, as "evidence" of their purported relationship.
He also shared a message, reportedly from Letizia, expressing affection and wearing a pashmina that he claims was sent to him.
In a subsequent post, Del Burgo explained his decision to delete his earlier social media messages, acknowledging it was a mistake and expressing a desire to recover the most important ones.
On Boxing Day, he shared the "four stages of the relationship" with Letizia, detailing periods of love, friendship, a continuous relationship, and a phase as brothers-in-law.
These sensational claims by Del Burgo come amidst a controversial narrative involving the Spanish Royal Family. The allegations spanned several years, including specific incidents in 2010 when Del Burgo claimed Letizia professed her love for him.
He suggested that their relationship continued until the end of 2014, involving travels to various destinations.
The Spanish Royal Family has remained tight-lipped about the allegations. Del Burgo cryptically hinted that "the truth will come out" and emphasized the importance of transparency in understanding who represents the Spanish people.
He urged limiting the power of authority and invoked historical references, including the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution and painter Francisco de Goya.
Despite the attention garnered by these revelations, the Spanish Royal Family has chosen not to comment on the matter, leaving an intriguing dynamic within the Royal Family that continues to captivate public interest.
