    That jacket would not be ok on anyone and not trying to be a prude but probably shouldn't be seeing the outline of her ass while on duty.

    • She claimed Juan Carlos transferred €65 million to her as a 'gift' in 2012

    The former mistress of Spain's King Juan Carlos has accused Queen Sofia and other members of the country's royal family of launching a 'smear campaign' against her following their affair.
    Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, 56, had a relationship with the ex-monarch, 82, between 2004 and 2009 and became caught up in scandal following the revelation that he had gifted her 65 million Euros.
    Juan Carlos, who is married to Queen Sofia, 81, left Spain in August after it was alleged he received millions of euros from Saudi Arabia 's late King Abdullah.
    Appearing in her first televised interview, Ms Sayn-Wittgenstein claimed that ahead of the revelations, she and her family were threatened by the head of the Spanish secret service in a bid to keep her silent.

    Appearing in her first televised interview for True Royalty's The Rise and Fall of The Spanish King, airing Friday, Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, 56, accused the Spanish royal family of launching a 'smear campaign' against her

    Ms Sayn-Wittgenstein told True Royalty's The Rise and Fall of The Spanish King, airing Friday, that she was visited by a man who 'couldn't guarantee the safety of her and her children' if she spoke to the media about her lover.
    'He said if I did not follow his instructions then he could not guarantee my physical safety or the safety of my children,' she claimed.
    'You go into this survival mode, it's fight or flight and you realise you're in a dangerous situation.'
    King Juan married Sofia in 1962 - and rumours of various affairs had been rife for 40 years by the time he met Danish-born businesswoman Ms Sayn-Wittgenstein in 2004.

    Ms Sayn-Wittgenstein told the programme that she is convinced Queen Sofia and other members of the Spanish royal family were responsible for a pre-planned smear campaign against her. Pictured: Juan Carlos and Sofia earlier this year

    'I think he saw in me a different kind of woman than he had come across in the past,' she said of her former flame. 'I think it fascinated him I treated him like a normal man rather than a symbol.'
    Ms Sayn-Wittgenstein's relationship with the then King of Spain was catapulted into the limelight in 2012 after he broke his hip during a safari trip to Botswana, on which she had accompanied him as a friend after they'd reportedly ended their romantic relationship.
    She told the programme she is convinced Queen Sofia and other members of the Spanish royal family were responsible for a pre-planned smear campaign against her, in an attempt to oust Juan Carlos from the throne and ensure her son Prince Felipe's accession.
    'Because they were in such a dysfunctional marriage and she was deeply unhappy, the King told me that her only objective in life was to see her son take the throne,' Ms Sayn-Wittgenstein alleged.

    'Anything that was problematic for the royal family,' she said, 'anything that caused them reputational problem was simply passed onto me.'
    Ms Sayn-Wittgenstein claimed she was visited and threatened by the head of the Spanish secret service, who had been instructed to keep her from talking to the media about the royal family.

    It was found in 2018 that Juan Carlos had given a £59 million (€65 million) payment to Sayn-Wittgenstein in 2012

    'It's been a daily fight of intrusion, surveillance, harassment, of abusive behaviour and it takes its toll,' she told the programme.
    As the investigation into the former king's shady dealings continued, Ms Sayn-Wittgenstein remained under scrutiny and an unyielding public spotlight.

    Swiss prosecutors are currently examining her under suspicion of money laundering - but Ms Sayn-Wittgenstein has claimed the money was simply a way of 'taking care of her' as he believed she would be cut out of his will.

    'He was adamant he wanted tot take care of me,' she said. 'He was convinced if he died his will would be ripped apart.
    'When the gift finally arrived I was obviously surprised because it was a very generous sum, however in the context of a net worth that's estimated by Forbes to be around 1.8 billion [euros], it is not an unreasonable amount of money.'
    She added: 'People think I'm some kind of criminal; I have done nothing wrong and am very confident this will end positively for me.'
    The security services have previously denied Ms Sayn-Wittgenstein's allegations and the palace has not commented on them.

    Right. You keep rolling out that line about the poor, misunderstood, king, Honey - and how you were different from all the others he was banging. It may even be true - he did pay you the most. Just remember, the size of the payment doesn't alter the nature of the transaction.

    For sure nose and mouth should be covered but my understanding is that the pleats should face down so it does not “catch” dust, germ particles etc,but rather fall down away from the face . I had this told to me by a medical health professional. Since then I’ve made it my mission to inform others that it does matter which way the pleats face ( maybe not as vital as covering nose and mouth but still important)

    It looks like money laundering to me, allegedly, and she doesn't want to give it back.

    Personally I refuse to date anyone who doesn't promise to throw a little spare change in the form of 65 million euros my way once we break up.

    On an entirely unrelated note, I wonder why I'm single...

    Apparently he’s more tolerable if you think of him as a man and not a symbol. At least according to her. Lying back and thinking of millions of euros must’ve helped.

    What, did she think that Sofia would welcome her with open arms?

    She’s not the victim, but for Sofia to resort to threats and intimidation by state agents for a private matter, towards a woman who is probably her husband’s 5557th mistress is pretty ridiculous. Not to mention probably illegal use of state resources. Maybe she should’ve used half that energy to stop her husband’s rampant corruption.

    ^^^Very true.
    We have already covered Sofias entitlement in this threat, this behaviour is fully in character.
