Today, the world of the small screen has suffered an irreparable loss after the death of one of the 'mothers' of television in our country. María Teresa Campos, journalist and presenter, has passed away this morning at the age of 82.
There are multiple public figures who have paid tribute to the journalist throughout today, as is the case with the Royal Family. In an emotional statement, Their Majesties the King and Queen wanted to send a message of support to the family of the iconic presenter.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia have dedicated some tender words to the journalist's loved ones: "We have sadly learned the news of María Teresa's death and we want to convey our affection, closeness and support to the entire family at this very difficult time."
Likewise, Their Majesties add: "With our recognition of her brilliant career, which made her a pioneer and a benchmark for radio and television in our country, we send you a big hug and our best memories".
After dying last morning, the remains of the announcer and television presenter will be cremated this Wednesday in Madrid "in the strictest privacy." Later, her ashes will be transferred to Malaga, where they will be buried along with the remains of her mother and her sisters, and a funeral will be held for her.
The daughters of María Teresa, Terelu Campos and Carmen Borrego, thanked the media today for "the affection and respect" with which their mother is being treated: "It has been a very difficult and long road, almost a year, which we have tried to carry with the greatest respect for her, knowing that what was happening was in the public interest, but that she deserved to have her dignity and privacy untouchable," Terelu affirms before the cameras.
