Her 6 children have stated they think the man Alfonso Diez, a civil servant to be after her wealth since she is one of the wealthiest women in Spain according to the BBC. The Duchess of Alba has been married twice before with the father of her children being her first. She has known Diez for years and has no doubts about his love for her. "Alfonso does not want money all he wants is me." which is why she is giving her fortune to her children before the marriage takes place.
She points out that each of her children have divorce which she has never done. Both prior marriages ended in death by natural causes. the UK Guardian quotes the Duchess as saying, " I have given each of my children and grandchildren a palace each, that ought to keep them quiet.
