Queen: “It’s Difficult To Smile Today.”

Queen Letizia addressed the recent terrorist attacks in Paris during a speech in Madrid today.

“Mother Teresa used to say that peace began with a smile,” said the Queen.

“It’s difficult to smile today but we will do it. It’s the first step for everything.”
