News of the relationship between the heir to the Spanish throne Prince Felipe and Norwegian fashion model girlfriend Eva Sannum being over has stunned many Spaniards. However, there are those who are pleased with the news, the courtship has been criticized because Spaniards did not want a queen who once modeled lingerie. But recent press reports suggested the couple were heading for the altar, with Sannum spending more time in Spain to study Spanish, learn about the country and prepare to convert from Lutheranism to Roman Catholicism and Spaniards were slowly growing to accept the eventual consequences. Polls consistently suggested most Spaniards opposed the relationship, which reportedly began in 1998 and hit the headline after a Spanish magazine pictured the two together in India on its front page. But the prince, who made the announcement on Friday, has denied he was acting out of a sense of duty. “The relationship simply did not prosper and that's all there is to it,” he said.
