Queen Sofia was back on the Royal Family’s public agenda this month.
King Felipe’s mother handed poet and architect Joan Margarit the Queen Sofia Prize in Iberoamerican Poetry during an event at the Royal Palace in Madrid.
Her Majesty also this month attended ceremonies to commemorate the anniversary of the charity group Manos Unidas or United Hands.
Earlier in the month, Queen Sofia attended a conference against Alzheimer’s disease.
The Royal Household has reduced Queen Sofia’s public events ever since her husband abdicated the throne. Their goal is to shine the spotlight on the new king and queen.
However, unlike her husband, who recently retired from public life, Queen Sofia has vowed to continue leading her foundation and championing pet projects.
