Queen Sofia is seen putting her arms around her granddaughters’ Lenora, 12, and Sofia, 10, ready to pose for pictures at the Palma Cathedral on Easter Sunday.
But, as the Queen prepares to take a picture, Letizia gets in the way of the camera and has an argument.
Letizia’s husband King Felipe VI then steps in as his 80-year-old father looked on.
Spanish media have called the footage ‘uncomfortable.’
‘As is obvious from the footage, the situation was most uncomfortable for King Felipe VI, who tried to mediate as his father looked on with great surprise,’ one publication wrote.
It’s unclear why the royal in-laws were arguing.
