Queen Sofía bursts into tears in her last act before Leonor’s 18th birthday

The Queen Sofia has burst into tears at the presentation of the honorary rector’s award at the Camilo José Cela University, his last act before next October 31, the day in which the Princess Eleanor He will turn 18 and swear to the Constitution before the Cortes. Just as he did King Felipe VI in 1986.

At the event, which was held this Friday, the queen emeritus was moved during the appointment of Emily Lora-Tamayo as Honorary Rector for Life of the Camilo José Cela University. The winner, due to his advanced age, has delicate health problems.

Although Felipe VI’s mother wiped away her tears with the help of a handkerchief, she has not lost her composure, being aware of her institutional role. When leaving the event, Mrs. Sofía was very affectionate with the winner, who left the venue in a wheelchair due to his mobility problems. While he was leaving the premises, Princess Leonor’s grandmother took him by the arm, starring in an endearing scene.

For the occasion, Queen Sófia has opted for an elegant navy blue pinstriped suit. Likewise, Infanta Cristina’s mother has combined it with a champagne-colored satin blouse and discreet gold jewelry.

We will not see the Queen again until next Tuesday, the day when Princess Leonor will swear in the Constitution before the Cortes. Doña Sofía will be present at the private celebration, which will take place at the Royal Palace of Pardo. The celebration will also be attended by king Juan Carlostheir daughters infantas Elena y Cristinaand part of his grandchildren: Michael and Irene Urdangarin would already be confirmed, Froilan, Juan y Pablo Urdangarin They will try by all means, while Victoria Federica He won’t be there to have a private trip with friends to Peru.
