Now she is  . I've read that she was and that she wasn't but it's true that the only time she came back to Spain after the exile, for Felipe's christening, she stayed at the Duchess of Alba's palace, and so many people went to see her that they opened the palace so everybody could greet the Queen. Everybody says(the Duchess, the butler..)that there were many, many people and they spent many hours until everybody greeted her.
She liked luxurious things, smoked and was advanced for Spain at that time, above all for her mil, Mª Cristina of Austria, who was her antithesis in everything.
She also was incredibly involved in the Red Cross in Spain and is still praised by the organization. A picture of her dressed in the Red Cross uniform:

She was not when she was the Queen. She was said to be too foreign, not adapt to the Spanish customs. However, the respect towards her had grown after the family went into exile. Many finally realized that she was a lot better than her hubby.
I have never found her beautiful, then I always thought Queen Mom was ugly (Beauty is in the eye of the beholder).

Yes, it is a rumor.  There was also a rumor that Princess Beatrice found mistresses for the King.  Which I think is false.

Isn't Ana Obregon the "geriatric Barbie" who was after Beckham when he was in Spain, and Victoria Beckham had to yell at her to leave him alone?
