A bikini-clad Duchess of Alba, age 86, went on a beach date with 61-year-old husband Alfonso Diez this weekend. The only appropriate reaction here is a low whistle. Most people are dead by that age, but Doña María del Rosario Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart y Silva, Eighteenth Duchess of Alba de Grandee of Spain (who also holds 40-plus other titles, including the Guinness World Records title for “most titles”) is living the sun-dappled dream.
As for Alfonso — whom the duchess abandoned $4.9 billion to marry — he’s a dead ringer for Steven Spielberg in this picture. (Click to zoom.) Admit it, this eccentric duchess seems way more fun than that peasant girl they keep talking about in Great Britain.
