Queen Sofia’s birthday: we review her life in pictures
Doña Sofía is already in Spain and the reception has been great. This weekend the emeritus queen and her daughters, the Infanta Elena and Cristina returned to Greece for the funeral mass of the queen’s brother, Constantine, which was taking place in the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens. The emeritus has felt most supported in these days of pain due to the farewell of her brother and this Monday she returned to her official commitments with her best smile. Specifically, Doña Sofía attended the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Madrid on Monday, February 20, to present the 2023 Ibero-American Patronage Awards, promoted by the Callia Foundation. Leaving mourning a little behind, still preserving her color, the queen has reappeared with a total velvet look. One of the monarch’s favorite fabrics. Highlighting her sobriety but at the same time showing off elegance and a bit of joy, the emeritus combined the black suit with a satin shirt with large lapels decorated with rhinestones and a gold brooch on the jacket.
