Un nouveau livre sur les dernières années de règne du roi Juan Carlos d'Espagne jette une lumière crue sur sa double vie 26/04/2015

Un livre présenté mercredi 23 avril 2015 écorne davantage encore l'image de l'ex roi d'Espagne qui aurait vécu une romance clandestine. Il explique également le divorce brutal entre les Espagnols et leur roi.24 heures seulement après sa sortie mardi, les 25.000 premiers exemplaires du livre "Final de partida" (Fin de partie) d'Ana Romero, journaliste espagnole de renom, s'étaient déjà vendus comme des petits pains. L'auteur, notamment spécialisée dans les affaires qui concernent la Maison royale pour le journal El Mundo, avait déjà publié plusieurs scoops. Elle a finalement décidé de baser son enquête sur des entretiens avec une centaine de personnes qui ont demandé l'anonymat. Le sujet était les quatre dernières années du roi Juan Carlos sur le trône espagnol."Le plus frappant pour moi, c'est le télescopage qui s'est produit entre la vie privée et la vie publique du monarque. Ce télescopage, qui n'aurait évidemment pas dû se produire, est très clairement illustré par une personne, une femme, Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein", explique Ana Romero. Durant environ dix ans, l'aristocrate allemande par alliance aurait été la compagne du roi, qui menait, par conséquent, "une double vie". Cela faisait apparemment un moment que Juan Carlos, 77 ans, avait l'idée de divorcer de la reine Sofia, mais son entourage l'en a dissuadé. Complètement charmé et amoureux, Juan Carlos aurait, par la suite, perdu tout "intérêt pour la chose publique" au moment même où son pays sombrait dans la crise...

Le duc de Cambridge accompagne la reine et le duc d'Edimbourg à la cérémonie d'hommage aux soldats tombés lors de la bataille de Gallipoli en 1915 25/04/2015

Prince William joined the Queen and political leaders to mark 100 years since the start of the Gallipoli campaign at the Cenotaph today - leaving the overdue Duchess of Cambridge in hospital.The Prince, who looked calm during the ceremony in London, had been desperate to make the engagement but his appearance had hung in the balance due to Kate's due date arriving.Thousands flocked to the emotional service this morning, which was also attended by the Duke of Edinburgh, top military figures and the three major party leaders, as well as Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones and Ukip leader Nigel Farage, who was not called upon for official duties.Prince William's official appearance suggested it was all quiet at the private Lindo Wing in Paddington, London, where his wife the Duchess of Cambridge is waiting to go into labour.Despite the national anticipation for the next Royal baby heating up, William 32, looked composed as he arrived in military uniform.William is on six weeks' unpaid leave from his job learning to fly helicopters for the East Anglian Air Ambulance after finishing the first phase of his training early.If the baby does arrive before the end of the day, the new prince or princess will share his or her birthday with Kate's late grandfather.As the service got underway in the shadow of the Cenotaph, the crowds listened as buglers from the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines sounded The Last Post a few moments after Big Ben tolled the last stroke of 11am.The Queen and those around her stood motionless in quiet reflection as they observed two minutes' silence as London traffic rumbled by in neighbouring streets.The head of state placed the first wreath near the base of the Cenotaph and she paused for a moment to bow her head before making her way back to her place.Mr Cameron followed laying his own floral tribute as did a number of senior ministers and George Brandis, Australia's Attorney General, and David Carter MP, Speaker of the New Zealand House of Representatives.During the service, the famous verse from Laurence Binyon's poem For The Fallen, which begins with the memorable line 'They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old', was read by 22-year-old Michael Toohey.Mr Toohey's great great uncle Private Thomas Toohey was serving with the Royal Dublin Fusiliers when he was killed in action during a Gallipoli landing at V Beach, Cape Helles on April 25 1915 aged 22.More than half a million Commonwealth and Irish soldiers fought during the eight-month long Gallipoli Campaign 400,000 from Britain, 15,000 from Ireland and 140,000 drawn from the modern nations of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Sri Lanka and the Indian sub-continent.Almost 36,000 Commonwealth servicemen are buried or commemorated on Gallipoli, including nearly 25,000 members of British and Irish forces, over 7,200 of Australian units, more than 2,300 of New Zealand forces, and more than 1,500 members of the Indian Army. Every year Australians and New Zealanders commemorate the landings of Gallipoli on April 25, known as Anzac Day, after the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps. The gathering at the Cenotaph was preceded by an Anzac Day dawn service at Wellington Arch in London, attended by Princess Anne. Around 58,000 Allied troops were killed in the disastrous campaign, many coming from the two British Commonwealth countries.
