She responds to slanderers: The muscles of Princess Kalina of Bulgaria are the talk of the town

On May 29, Princess Kalina of Bulgaria made a public appearance during the repatriation of the coffin of King Ferdinand I, who died in exile. The princess’s muscular body made many observers react. But this fighting 52-year-old woman, victim of a medical accident in her childhood, defends herself in the face of criticism.

Princess Kalina’s husband Kitin Munoz (L), Princess Kalina (2-L) of Bulgaria, Princess Kalina’s son Simeon Hassan Munoz (3-L) of Bulgaria and Prince Konstantin-Asen (3 -R) attend the funeral ceremony to receive the mortal remains of King Ferdinand I at the Vrana Palace in Sofia, Bulgaria on May 29, 2024.

The princess appeared with a very muscular body.

Princess Kalina of Bulgaria has had many faces throughout her life. But contrary to what one might believe, it is not due to an addiction to cosmetic surgery.

Princess and Duchess of Saxony, she was born into a Bulgarian royal family in exile, in Madrid. At the age of 8, she split her palate and lost two teeth. “A few years later, when she wanted to have dental veneers fitted, the reconstruction of her palate did not hold and was perforated,” reports “Gala”.

And that’s not all: shortly after this failed dental operation, while she was at sea with her husband, a serious ENT infection affected her face. Being isolated on a boat made things worse, as her husband Kitin Munoz told Gala magazine: “We had to evacuate her urgently, she underwent surgery to first clean the infection and avoid cosmetic damage, but that didn’t matter at that moment. The most important thing was to save the eye and the nose.”

“I am an athlete”

But Kalina of Bulgaria, often described as an “atypical”, “adventurous” or even “punk” princess, has character. When criticism arose after her recent public appearance on May 29, she defended herself in the Spanish press: “I dedicate myself to bodybuilding and my physical fitness, I am an athlete,” she declared in the columns of “El Mundo”.

Sport is not new to the Bulgarian princess: she practiced horse riding at a high level for around fifteen years. Today, according to the words of her sports coach in “Vanitatis”, the fifty-year-old follows a daily training program with iron discipline. “She’s basically doing weight training, what we call muscular endurance.”

Her trainer further emphasizes: “It helped her a lot from a psychological point of view (…) You know, there were difficult times in her family.”

And like a true athlete, the princess makes no dietary deviations: she ingests neither sugar nor fats and does not drink alcohol, we learn again in “Point de Vue”.
