A SPANISH aristocrat rolled out the red carpet of his lavish Sevilla palace for two war-torn Syrian families.
While Madrid’s mayor today pledged €10 million for Syrian refugees, charity started at home – some 18 months ago – for the youngest son of the wacky late Duchess of Alba.
Cayetano Martinez de Irujo y Fitz-James Stuart’s family estate near Carmona has played host to two Syrian families for the last year and a half – but has only just owned up to his Samaritan ways.
He told broadcaster Cuatro that he was inspired by a news story about Salam (pictured right), a refugee forced to sleep on the Spanish streets despite being a qualified urologist and speaking five languages.
“I always do things and don’t talk about them,” said the duke.
“But in this moment I feel so sensitive about this, so angry, so helpless in the face of what is happening that of course I agreed to speak.”
His mother, the Duchess of Alba, had more titles than anyone else on the planet and passed away in November.
What about all the homeless Spanish???????????????????????
With his wealth and family estATE I AM “IMPRESSED” WITH HIS CONTRIBUTION TO HOUSE (ONLY 2) sYRIAN REFUGEE FAMILIES. I bet the Pope says” He’s not going to Heaven on this one!”
