Details about the secret love story

A book also writes about this secret history. Their story would have four stages: from 2002 to 2004 it was a passionate relationship, from 2004 to 2010 they pretended to be 'friends' before resuming their love story, 'more stable and continuous' between 2010 and 2011 They then became 'brother-in-law' in 2012 when he married the queen's sister, Telma Ortiz.

The book states that in 2004 del Burgo did not know that Letizia Ortiz was already engaged to Prince Felipe. He invited her to dinner to ask her to marry him: "He had an engagement ring in his pocket, but he couldn't give it to her, since apparently Letizia had told him that she had met a man who would completely change his life her: Felipe di Borbone e di Grecia".
