Maria del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James Stuart y de Silva—yes, that’s one name—proves that money can’t buy one beauty. She is one of the wealthiest women in Spain, worth between $850 million and $5 billion.
Love is leading her heart… and wisely, her pocketbook. The Duchess of Alba, 85, is giving her fortune away to her six children to marry a man 24 years her junior. Her kids were dubious about ma’s plans to marry Alfonso Diez, a mere civil servant, so she’s dividing her assets among them… We’ll see how long Diez sticks around when macaroni and Cheez Whiz is served for din din.
The duchess’ children are all from her first marriage to Pedro Luis Martinez de Irujo y Artazcoz, who died in 1972. She remarried in 1978, and he passed away in 2001. She’s been friends with Diez for several years. The Duchess is quick to point out that all six of her children are divorced. Go, girl.
She’s already placated each of her children and eight grandchildren with a palace. Hopefully, she’ll be calling me soon… If you look into my lineage, my Christian name is Chuck del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James Stuart y de Silva.
