@miriamhatibi friso per saber què li acabes de dir a en Felipe M'ha encantat veure com no seguies el conte de fer-li la careta contenta— Marc Grabuleda Prat (@MARCGRABULEDA) 26 of August 2017

I would pay to hear what Míriam Hatibi must have said to the king... sure that they weren't convenient words. You're brilliant, Míriam!
What's Míriam Hatibi said to the king's face when he greeted her? "I'm not scared" and what else? We'd like to know. I'm sure that we'll agree with it well enough.
Intrigante la charlita que le acaba de dar Miriam Hatibi al rey acabada con un "vale?" que le habrá dicho... #NoTincPor — Иосиф Карлос
Intriguing the little chat that Mririam Hatibi just gave to the king ended with an "okay?" What will she have said to him...
