MADRID-The paternal grandfather of Princess Leticia Ortiz has died from a lung problem from which he had suffered for years, the Royal Household said.

José Luis Ortiz Velasco, who was 82, died on Wednesday morning at his home in Sardéu, in the Asturian town of Ribadesella, where he lived with his wife Menchu Álvarez del Valle.

Princess Letizia had visited her grandparents with Crown Prince Felipe on numerous occasions.

Letizia had often used the house in Sardéu to get away from the glare of publicity in which she finds herself.

The last time the couple went to see her grandparents was the weekend before the first anniversary commemoration of the March bombings.

Letizia and Crown Prince Felipe are to attend the funeral tomorrow at a place still to be determined.
