Queen Sofia gathered with members of the Spanish, Greek and Danish Royal Families last week to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of her father, King Paul I of Greece.
Members of the Greek Royal Family, including King Constantine II of Greece, Queen Sofia’s brother, hold deep ties to the Danish Royal Family.
King Constantine’s wife Anne-Marie, for example, was born Princess of Denmark.
The Danish Royal Family remains in power while Greece abolished its monarchy in the 1970’s.
The Royals and nobles held a small ceremony at the Tatoi Royal Palace outside of Athens, where Queen Sofia spent much of her childhood.
They also watched a new documentary about King Paul.
Media outlets took note of Infanta Cristina attending the events even amid the corruption investigation involving her husband. Queen Sofia, it is said, is insisting in family unity.
For 300 years members of the Royal Family have visited the church to venerate the Christ of Medinaceli.
Back in Madrid, Infanta Elena represented the Spanish Royal Family at the Medinaceli Basilica.
