SPANISH royals were left embarrassed again after being denied entry to an Olympics journalists’ zone.
The Queen, Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia were stopped by a British volunteer as they tried to enter an area reserved for journalists.
The family were hoping to be able to congratulate Nicolas Garcia, who had just won a silver medal in taekwondo.
The volunteer stated that he had no idea who they were, and without accreditation there would be no entry.
Princess Letizia took several pictures of the man as he told them to leave and turned his back on the Spanish royals.
The confusion was over when Garcia arrived later and the trio were finally permitted into the area.
