THE Queen of Spain is suing an online dating site which used her photograph in a controversial ad campaign.
Queen Sofia is taking legal action against American website Ashley Madison, which encourages extra-marital affairs, for ‘damage to her honour and dignity’.
The company used a Photoshopped image of the Queen with her arms wrapped around a semi-naked young man.
In what is thought to be a reference to infidelity rumours surrounding her husband King Juan Carlos, the advert also featured the slogan: ‘Now you no longer have to spend the night alone’.
Last year the same firm used a picture of the King with two scantily-clad models, with the slogan: ‘The best place to ‘hunt’ for an adventure’.
