Queen Sofia has taken more of a back seat since her husband, King Juan Carlos, abdicated the Spanish throne.

But Queen Sofia remains active with royal events and shepherding her foundation. Groups have been awarding her for her help.

Queen Letizia and Queen Sofia have always seemed to have a close relationship.

Queen Letizia knows she doesn’t have her mother-in-law’s blue blood, but has the life experience and speaking abilities necessary to complement her.

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