While the Spanish Royal Family is still trying to assess the damage done by the Inaki Urdangarin (and the injury that can still be caused by more harmful revelations), there are some good news as well.
His Excellency Don Juan Gomez-Acebo y de Borbon, Viscount de la Torre – the eldest son of Infanta Pilar, Duchess of Badajoz – has announced he is expected his first child with his long-time partner, Winston Carney.
Although Don Juan, 43, and Miss Carney, 39, are not married, they have been dated for a number of years now. The child will be born at the end of April in California where Carney resides. The child will be the 9th grandchild for Infanta Pilar. The Infanta is the older sister of King Juan Carlos and Infanta Margarita of Spain.
The couple announced the happy news this weekend as they travelled to Madrid for an official presentation which took place in the Ritz. No member of the immediate Spanish Royal Family (Their Majesties, the Princes of Asturias, Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina) is known to have been present. Nevertheless, Don Juan gave Miss Carney and her family a taste of royal life by taking them on a private guided tour of the Royal Palace in Madrid.
Winston Carney is a wealthy American heiress, daughter of James and Laura Carney. She is an interior designer who chose her profession “to help people convert those inner impressions gathered from life experiences into a statement that reflects who they are and what they value.”
Congratulations to the couple!
