ANTI-ROYALIST British filmmaker Ken Loach has put politics aside to meet with Queen Letizia of Spain.
The famous lefty director, 83, took the hand of the stunning 46-year-old monarch as he received a lifetime achievement award in Mallorca.
The Kes director dressed down, with no tie – like his pal, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – as he took Letizia’s hand at the Atlantida Film Fest.
Meanwhile Spain’s glamourous royal stepped out in a sleeveless black blouse, which she paired with fitted white trousers and stilettos.
“I am a Republican, the monarchy is the apex of the class system, but I am an educated person,” Loach said after bagging his prize at Bellver Castle.
“But do not be mistaken, this is not collaborationism,” he added.
Spanish director Fernando Leon de Aranoa presented Loach with his ‘Masters of Cinema’ Award.
But with Letizia in the front row of the audience, Loach couldn’t help himself, raising his fist in a typically Socialist salute during his acceptance speech.
