Eugenia Martinez de Irujo is the true heiress of the rebellious spirit of the much-missed
Cayetana de Albaand not just for showing off the most genuinely happy smile in the family, putting on the world with her animalism or getting married in Las Vegas dressed as Marilyn.

When so many see their mother in her, they also perceive the generosity with which she cares for the
important linksabove all, those who have been part of
his childhood. Her close relationship with Margaret, whom she considers a sister, is one of them.

The childhood of
small children of Cayetana Fitz-James, the Duchess of Alba, was not exactly a bed of roses. At least, that is what can be concluded through the account that Cayetano Martínez de Irujo has made of her and some statements by her sister Eugenia de ella.

It was not easy for them to be part of the Alba family. The Duke of Salvatierra was the first of the Albas to reveal the harshness of a
lonely childhoodwho was hurt by the death of his father, Luis Martínez de Irujo y Artázcoz, when he was only nine years old, and the distance with which his mother treated him.

“I had a sad and lonely childhood. My father died when I was little, my mother was always away from home playing the Duchess of Alba and, when my sister Eugenia was born,
they took my nanny and I had to deal with babysitters who were very harsh on me.” Of Cayetana’s second husband, Jesús Aguirre, he said the following: “Jesus arrived and tried to subdue me by force in my father’s position.”

Eugenia Martinez de Irujo He has commented on some painful episodes of his childhood, although in his case he was able to enjoy his mother’s affection, perhaps because he arrived at a time of
greater maturity and learning of Cayetana, who had it when he was already 42 years old. It was not her maternal relationship that caused her bad childhood memories, but precisely Jesús Aguirre. The Duchess and Aguirre were married for 25 years.

“When she married Aguirre it was
lousy for us. He was very cultured, but zero human. He was very bad », confessed Eugenia in a well-known television program. «He told me some things when I was 11 years old that I still have saved. He called me into his office and said that if we were still living at home it was thanks to him. That if something happened to my mother, that, according to him, she had a heart condition, which was a lie, I would be to blame. I cried a lot”.

“That union with my mother was disastrous for us,” revealed Eugenia Martínez de Irujo. «Everyone has that man as in the altars, but he looks, I am very well taking out what he has actually been». And she added: «Many times I confronted him, but my mother was always there.
defended him Until the end, he always wanted us to see him in another way, that it was impossible to see him ».

Luckily for Eugenia and Cayetano Martínez de Irujo, he was already in their lives
Margarita Cayargathat nanny who went from taking care of Cayetano to raising Eugenia, and who acted as a second mother to both of them and also to her older brother, Fernando.

Cayarga came to the Alba family very young but already trained as a childcare worker and
raised the six children of the Duchess of Alba. She was an educator, friend and mother to all of them, although when they reached pre-adolescence they passed into the hands of an English governess.

Why Margaret is the secret sister of Eugenia Martínez de Irujo

Unfortunately, he passed away in Madrid at the age of 94, in 2015, just one year after the death of Cayetana, Duchess of Alba. It was a very hard blow for the brothers
lose both of their mothers practically at the same time.
The Count of Salvatierra he came every week to his home to spend time together: he was an essential person in his life. He said that he saved his life as a child, when he fell into a pool, and from that moment the bond between them became unbreakable.

They say that the relationship between Margarita, Nana, and Cayetano was so close that the Duchess of Alba became jealous of her. When she was already out of the orbit of Cayetana de Alba, Cayarga always said between laughs that she had taken
“to the best son” of the Duchess. In fact, he has always been concerned about her well-being and frequently invited her to spend time at the Las Arroyuelas estate, in Carmona (Seville).

Margarita Cayarga had her daughter Margaret in 1966. She is only two years older than the Duchess of Montoro, so both girls
they grew up togetherpractically like sisters. Hence, Eugenia Martínez de Irujo refers to her as
his sister On Instagram. Margaret was born with Down syndrome, a circumstance that has made both brothers aware of this genetic condition and the need to integrate and normalize it.

It is very easy to follow
Margaret’s relationship (56 years old) and Eugenia Martínez de Irujo through Instagram, since the Duchess of Montoro does not usually miss the
celebration of his birthday and, as we see now, he seeks to spend vacation days with his beloved sister.

The relationship between Margaret and the Martínez de Irujo brothers is not only emotional, but legal: Cayetano promised to take care of her when Margarita died, and since 2015 he has been her legal guardian.
