Queen Letizia helped honor Queen Sofia, her mother-in-law, for work preventing drug addiction.
Queen Sofia has taken more of a back seat since her husband, King Juan Carlos, abdicated the Spanish throne.

Queen Letizia is not as close to her father-in-law, King Juan Carlos, who has never fully warmed up to her.
