Spanish princess is the first royal to die from coronavirus.
The princess, a distant cousin of King Felipe VI, was 86 and died in Paris on Thursday, her brother said. Princess Teresa's death comes weeks after King Felipe VI of Spain tested negative for the virus.
Her funeral was held in Madrid on Friday.
Princess Maria Teresa studied in France and became a professor at Paris' Sorbonne as well as a professor of Sociology at Madrid's Complutense University. She was known for her enlarged and friendly views, being an activist work, which led to her nickname the "Red Princess."
France recorded a total of 40,174 confirmed cases of the virus Sunday, which is marking a 6.9% increase.
Spain has recorded more than 80,000 cases and 6,803 deaths, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.
The British royal family has also been affected by coronavirus.Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus on March 25. Charles, 71, is currently self-isolating.
The countdown has begun until the great release, announced by the authorities on May 15. Plans are being made about the operation of restaurants, hotels, rules have been imposed for the reopening of hair salons. The somewhat normal life is enjoyed by the citizens of other European states. The images of Austrians rushing into shops, or those of Spaniards enjoying sports and walks are as optimistic as they are disturbing. Authorities warn that the danger has not passed.
Since 1 May, Austria has further relaxed measures imposed in the context of the coronavirus pandemic and allowed the reopening of hairdressing salons, larger shops and shopping malls. And the images speak for themselves about the impatience with which people have been waiting for this relaxation. Queues formed in front of clothing stores, sidewalks were crowded, and parks and markets became promenades again.
Austria will further relax its containment measures from May 15, when restaurants and cafes will be reopened and religious services will be able to resume, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz was quoted as saying by Reuters on Tuesday.
Relaxation also is in Spain, one of the hardest-hit countries in terms of deaths due to the new coronavirus. Over the weekend, in Barcelona, runners and cyclists littered the streets near the beach, where surfers enjoyed the waves.
In Madrid, cyclists and young people on skateboards walked the boulevards, crossing police lanes trying to prevent congestion. Spain was one of the countries hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic and imposed strict containment measures in March. Sports and recreational activities have been banned in an attempt to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who in a posted video is feeding his pet donkey and miniature pony in the kitchen, is consequently asking his fans to consider the safety of everyone around.
In the clip Schwarzenegger is spending quality time with Whiskey the pony and Lulu the donkey while staying at home, the celebrity is arguing that limiting time spent in public isn't all that bad.
"See, the important thing is that you stay at home, because there's a curfew now. No one is allowed out. Especially someone who is, like, 72 years old (referring to himself). After you are 65, you are not allowed out of the house anymore in California. So we stay home and we eat here," Schwarzenegger mentions.
The star is telling his furry friends: "We don't go out, we don't go to restaurants, we don't do anything like that anymore here."
Schwarzenegger told his 4.4 million Twitter followers that they are the one who can protect older people with weaker immune systems and not only, but everyone around so people will not contact the deadly virus.
"Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together," Schwarzenegger highlighted in his tweet.
How Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are trying to get closer to the royal family. The great reconciliation could take place at Christmas
After a long time and a lot of controversy that kept them away from the royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle plan to get closer to those they bothered with their public statements.
The metaphorical olive branch could reunite the family for Christmas, when Harry and Meghan are expected to pay a visit to England. Royal expert Katie Nicholl spoke with Closer about what could happen in December this year, a moment she sees as a good opportunity for the Dukes of Sussex to take advantage of this. He was approaching the British family again.
The two would thus mark the first trip of little Lilibet Diana and the meeting with her grandparents and great-grandmother from her father, an opportunity that Queen Elizabeth II is looking forward to. In addition, members of the royal family have not seen Archie since last winter, when his parents left England.
Family Christmas would be the perfect opportunity for Meghan and Harry to be welcomed back home, and their children would certainly be the deciding factor in sweetening relationships.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want to baptize Lilibet at Windsor Castle
Harry and Meghan want to baptize Lilibet at Windsor Castle, which pleases all lovers of the Royal House, who most likely lost hope of reconciliation.
"Harry and Meghan made this request, but many people are shocked by her courage. Maybe they really want to see the queen, but it's amazing, considering what they did this year.
The Queen cares a lot about Harry and would love to see Lilibet and her brother Archie. But the courtiers are surprised by the move, especially from Meghan, after it happened, 'a source told The Sun.
Since resigning from his royal duties, Prince Harry has only been to Britain twice, but Meghan has not left the United States.
The Spaniards were frightened and returned to harsh measures. Spain decided on Wednesday (May 6th) to extend the state of emergency for another two weeks. That was after it was given free to walks and physical activities.
Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez called on the parliament, which approved the measure, after easing the restrictions, bringing the number of cases of illness to 3,121 on May 6. This is after, after the end of April and the beginning of May, they had stabilized at 850 -1,200 new cases per day.
Spain has registered 256,855 cases of COVID-19 disease and over 26,000 deaths. The Sanchez government wants to gradually lift the measures of isolation at home and at the same time control the implementation of measures of social distancing and hygiene among the population.
Home isolation was imposed on March 14 and the state of emergency was due to end on Saturday, May 9, but will be extended until May 24. Although the opposition claimed that 60 days of state of emergency were illegal, it had to vote on the law for national security.
The first tourists after the pandemic are welcomed as celebrities in Mallorca: "This is our first meeting with freedom!"
On the Spanish island of Mallorca, many locals make a living from tourism. Especially the one practiced by the Germans. But the pandemic kept the beaches deserted for months, and tourism collapsed. The hope is that the summer season will make up for the losses. A Deutsche Welle team was at the island's airport when the first tourist plane arrived.
Mallorca waited three months for this plane. It brings the first tourists since the isolation due to the coronavirus and is part of a pilot project during a pandemic. In the new Arrivals terminal of the airport there are health questionnaires and infrared rooms that measure your temperature.
Summer vacation suddenly became a news topic. Not even the arrival of the first East Germans in Mallorca after the fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago has been so intensely publicized.
Lluis Mestres, journalist: I think it's because I was in total isolation for three months and, at that time, everything that was normal stopped being normal. And what was not supposed to be news - that millions of Germans are coming to Mallorca - is now suddenly one. They are received as stars.
Thomas and Antonia Tobor arrived from Bonn this morning. I patiently answer every question.
More than four million German tourists come to the island every year. The seaside resorts are mainly dedicated to mass tourism. But that did not affect the popularity of the island of Mallorca.
Antonia and Thomas Tobor had time at the hotel to recover after meeting with the press. It's their first vacation together in a while. Normally, it was the peak season now, but here they have the cliff just for them. It is a luxury at package prices.
It doesn't bother them that the popular clubs in Mallorca are still closed.
