Queen Sofia Is Back

Queen Sofia is back after several months out of the spotlight in Spain and off the Royal agenda.

Her Majesty visited the Basilica of the Christ of Medinaceli in Madrid for an annual veneration ceremony.

At least one member of the Royal Family has tried to attend the event every year for the last 300 years.

Queen Sofia was said to be taking care of family issues in recent months. At the same time, she has always been deeply committed to keeping up with tradition.

Today she presided over a gathering of the Queen Sofia School of Music along with several family members.
