Infanta Elena Grants Interview

Infanta Elena, the King’s eldest daughter, expressed concern this month by people’s skepticism with public institutions, including the Spanish Crown.

“I am disquieted by the distance people are feeling with institutions,” Her Royal Highness told the Spanish EFE news agency during a rare interview this month to mark her 50th birthday.
