Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein said that on an unexpected occasion she had a very difficult conversation with Queen Sofia. The conversation would take place at the Zarzuela Palace in Madrid in front of an incredulous Juan Carlos. The woman said: “Suddenly Queen Sofia bursts into the room with a face of thunder. He pointed at me and said, “I know who you are.” Obviously I wanted to be swallowed up on the ground”. He added that the former king “seemed totally surprised and unable to cope with this aggression”.

This tete-a-tete with the wife of the Sovereign did not, however, prevent their relationship from continuing. In fact, in 2009, Juan Carlos gave Corinna a very important ring. She said, however, that she interpreted it more as a sign of affection than as a real, binding marriage proposal. However, their relationship soured that same year, as she had to be away from the Sovereign for eight months caring for her cancer-stricken father.
