In The Name Of Love
I always get fascinated with some interesting news around the globe. This is the advantage I got from not concentrating too much on Filipino channel as I don't have it here in my place. Hahahaha....
Just got curious with the recent news about Duchess Maria Del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James Stuart y de Silva...wheww...wonder how she learns to write her name when she was in pre school. (lol)
Well...this famous personality is creating a bigger name more so due to her well publicized wedding plans. This 85 year old Duchess who is known to be one of the wealthiest women in Spain is set to marry a public servant, Alfonso Diez, who is 24 years younger.....all in the name of love.
Yes..you heard it right! The 18th Duchess of Alba will give away all her personal fortune in order to set herself free and be with the man she loves. Diez was said to have signed a document renouncing all his claims to the wealth of his lady love. Despite of this, the Duchess still distributed to all her children and grand children their inheritance in advance. Her children were said to have opposed the wedding plans, thus, the Duchess decided to give their inheritance to get their approval. The Duchess and Diez were close friends for years now. Her wealth is estimated to be in between $850 million to $4.84 billion USD.
On a personal note, I guess this move of the Duchess to give away her wealth in advance and the decision of Diez to sign a document to renounce claims over the former's wealth is a clear manifestation that these two souls are madly deeply in love. No doubt that their age and age gap is questionable but we must remember that "love has no rules". This kind of love is one in a million! Some people go for companionship and to them, this is all that matters most.
Hmmm....Let's just be happy for them. This only proves that....
