Discretion and silence
People who want to be friends with Queen Letizia must meet some rules. The main rule for being friends is discretion with respect to the press . Although some have access to information highly coveted by the media, they have never leaked absolutely anything that has to do with their friend.
Generally, the press tends to insist a lot regarding his friendship with the Queen, trying to get information. Of course, they always use elusive and irrelevant answers. What’s more, they even knew about his relationship with Felipe before anyone else, keeping his secret until it became public. For this reason, the friendship relationship has been able to last so many years without there having been any fissure.
