King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia Back On The Agenda

King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, King Felipe’s parents, are back on the Royal Household’s agenda.

But they’ve made a number of official appearances in recent days.

King Felipe, as Prince of Asturias, used to be the official representative of the Spanish Royal Family at Latin American inaugurations.

The task has fallen on King Juan Carlos, whose connections in Latin America run deep.

This week he also met with outgoing Uruguay President Pepe Mujica, known for living in a humble home outside the capital.
