Spain’s Royal Court Claims “Misquote” In Queen’s Anti-Gay Gaffe

Spain’s royal flacks insist Queen Sofia’s anti-gay comments from her biography were “misquoted:”

The Spanish royal court distanced itself Friday from comments expressed by Queen Sofia in a new biography in which she opposes gay marriage, among other political comments.

The queen was making the comments ‘in a private framework,’ a statement from the Zarzuela Palace in Madrid said. The queen’s comments had also been misquoted, the palace said.

Author Pilar Urbano calls those claims absolute rubbish and points out that the Queen approved the biography before it went to print.
