In her early days, Letizia studied journalism at the Complutense University of Madrid and the Institute for Studies in Audiovisual Journalism. The 47-year-old met Felipe while working as a news anchor, though she wasn’t originally welcomed into the royal family.
You see, Letizia was previously married to Alonso Guerrero Pérez. Although the marriage only lasted a year, her status as a “divorcée” forced the couple to keep things under wraps until they were serious.
In May 2004, she and Felipe exchanged vows at the Cathedral Santa María la Real de la Almudena in Madrid. They now have two daughters together, Leonor, Princess of Asturias (14) and Infanta Sofía (12).
