There’s no shortage of drama in the Spanish royal family.

Journalist Jaime Peñafiel, 91, released a new book, titled “Letizia’s Silences,” about Queen Letizia’s alleged infidelity with her ex-brother-in-law Jaime del Burgo.

According to Peñafiel, Letizia, 51, and King Felipe, 56, had a rocky relationship in the years before the alleged affair began.

When they started dating in the early 2000s, Letizia would “test” her husband’s feelings for her by frequently traveling, Peñafiel wrote in his book, per the Daily Mail.

The author claimed that Letizia flew to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, in 2002 for the Ibero-American Summit to put the king’s intentions “to the test.”

Letizia allegedly went to Costa Rica just weeks later to similarly get a rise out of Felipe.

“It was a strategy, because that absence was a real torment for the very much in love Felipe, who conceived distance as the worst of evils, coming to understand [Spanish poet] Lope de Vega when he said that ‘the beginning of absence is like the end of life,’ ” Peñafiel wrote.

Eventually, Letizia realized Felipe had “total love” for her and she returned to Spain “bossy and manipulative,” per the book.

Letizia and Felipe married in 2004.

They have two daughters, Princess Leonor, 18, and Princess Sofia, 17.

In his book, Peñafiel claimed that Felipe knew about Letizia’s alleged affair with del Burgo “in real time” because of her bodyguards. According to the author, Felipe was “crushed and destroyed” by Letizia’s alleged “betrayal,” and was “plunged into hell.”

Letizia, 51, reportedly dated del Burgo before meeting King Felipe in 2002.

They allegedly had their affair for years after the royal wedding.

The entrepreneur, who is the son of former politician Jaime Ignacio del Burgo, was married to Letizia’s sister, Telma Ortiz, from 2012 to 2014.

Peñafiel previously alleged that Letizia was embroiled in an affair with del Burgo in his first book, titled “Letizia & I,” which came out in January. That same month, Peñafiel was let go from the Spanish newspaper El Mundo after 20 years due to his allegations.

Del Burgo backed up Peñafiel’s claims about the affair in the book.

He claimed that Letizia came to see him the night before her wedding to Felipe and allegedly asked del Burgo to “never leave” her.

“When we met, she took hold of my hand and asked me why I had never asked her to marry me,” del Burgo alleged. “Obviously, I didn’t reply. I encouraged her as best I could. The last thing she said to me before we said goodbye to each other in that restaurant was a request: ‘Never leave me.’ “

According to del Burgo, their relationship continued for years and he allegedly has photos, videos and text messages to prove it.

Despite the alleged scandal, Felipe and Letizia — who was previously married to literature teacher Alonso Guerrero Perez from 1998 to 1999 — have kept a united front. They celebrated their 20th anniversary last week.

The Post has reached out to the Spanish royal family’s office for comment.
