They are Spain's royal dream couple: Victoria Federica de Marichalar y Borbón and Jorge Bárcenas.
At a glamorous champagne party by Moët & amp; Chandon at the Royal Theater in Madrid last week, the two drew everyone's attention.
The 21-year-old and the DJ have been in a relationship since 2019.
Victoria Federica de Marichalar y Borbón (21) and Jorge Bárcenas are the Spanish answer to Duchess Meghan (40) and Prince Harry (37).
The niece of the Spanish King Felipe (53 ) and the DJ are currently the most hyped members of the royal family.
In the next year they could rise to the virtual Olympus and become the most influential influencer couple.
Why the chances are good and what scandals and airs, especially Victoria, are making headlines took care of.
They are young, rebellious and unbelievably refreshingly breaking open the otherwise very stiff Spanish court protocol: Victoria Federica de Marichalar y Borbón and Jorge Bárcenas. Just last week, at a party at the champagne house Moët & amp; Chandon for the wow appearance of the evening. In a silver evening gown with sequins, transparent fabric and XXL slit, the 21-year-old niece of Spain's King Felipe (53) walked the carpet with her long-time friend.
It was pure glamor, paired with modernity and royalness. As if the Spanish royal family had finally arrived in the modern age – away from dusty and strict labels, towards a new era. And it is precisely this esprit that has made them the influencer couple that aroused the most expectations in 2021 and the most coveted ones in 2022.
She has been loving the DJ for two years
The two met in 2019, and now they also live together. The favorite granddaughter of the scandal ex-king Juan Charlos (83) and the professional DJ with the stage name Barce moved into a 500 square meter apartment with an inner courtyard on Paseo de la Castellana in Madrid, the rent of which, according to the magazine “Mujerhoy”, is equivalent to at least 4100 francs should cost per month. Far away from royal court life, they occasionally give insights into their everyday life on Instagram. It is this virtual closeness and their love for one another that makes them popular in their home country, Spain.
But also because they represent Generation Z like no other influencer couple – especially not in the European royal houses: young people who present themselves in a very exciting way and with an unbelievable freshness. Especially since they uproot society's sexist cliché that women shouldn't be taller than men.
Spain's scandalous «princess»
Doña Victoria was Federica de Todos los Santos de Marichalar y Borbón, the full name of the daughter of Infanta Elena (57) and Jaime de Marichalar (58), before her Jorge Spain's headline queen. The business administration student at the College for International Studies, who does not have the title of princess, has caused worried faces behind the palace walls with one or the other excitement in recent years.
At the age of 13, she was said to have anorexia after appearing at her grandmother's funeral. The rumors lasted until her father spoke to the Spanish portal «Vanitatis». “What bullshit. Another nonsense …! ». Likewise, her preference for cigarettes is always wildly speculated in the press.

Harry and Meghan were yesterday
However, the public argument with their mother was particularly precarious. A video-recorded confrontation between Elena and number five in line to the throne went viral online. The reason for the discussion: the then 19-year-old had a bra strap flashing. The relationship with her grandfather, however, is close. His eldest granddaughter is said to be the “eye star” of Juan Carlos.
Incidentally, the Royal was in a relationship with the bullfighter Gonzalo Caballero for over a year. At the end of 2019, the relationship broke up because of his career aspirations. Now the DJ has conquered her heart – and together the whole world will follow in the coming year.
