Spain’s former king ‘had trysts in van at palace’


Former Spanish King Juan Carlos used to meet one of his alleged lovers in a van at the back of the Zarzuela Palace, a documentar­y investigat­ing his affairs has claimed.

Saving the King on HBO suggests the then king had an affair in the 1980s with a photojourn­alist, holding secret meetings in the park around the palace.

“They made me enter through a back door … to the Zarzuela grounds and we met inside a van,” Angélica Campillo claimed in a previously unseen interview, recorded before her death from cancer in 2015.
