Queen Sofia was evidently sad at the funeral for the Spanish militars who died in an aerial crash in 2003 coming back from Afghanistan. Year 2003.

Look at the faces of Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina, they look devastated. They participated, along with Prince Felipe, in a rally against terrorism following the terrorist attacks in Madrid in march the 11, 2004.

I'm not a fan of anyone (including royals) getting overly emotional all the time, but there are certain times when it should be acceptable for anyone and everyone to shed a tear or two. I mean, poor Queen Beatrix at the funerals of her mother, husband, and father all so close together! The royals are people too, and while they're held to a certain higher standard, I think it would be very odd for them NOT to show emotion during a very happy or sad time in their lives.

AI'm sorry. I don't think it is good for the Spanish royals to show so many emotions. They've got to hold themselves up.

Though in these photos she it does not look like the King Juan Carlos and the Queen they are in the habit of containing enough their emotions, but these images belong to tremendously dramatic moments.
Often, these tears of the Queen Sofia, which is in the habit of having a contained and severe gesture, are the sample of the pain of the whole people, and the Spanish are grateful for it.

In this accident more than 50 soldiers died, and in the attempts of 11M already we all know what happened. The Queen Sofia always is there and offers her shoulder for whom needs to weep on it, and I assure you that it the people are grateful for it. I believe that it is impossible to cry when a mother kneels down before you and says to you that " ojalá something like that should never happen to your children "; or when a father asks for the death sentence for those who killed his son, and when he realizes that the Queen is there he asks for pardon him crying and the Queen consoles him.

The Royal Family is the representation of a State, but also it is the representation of the whole people, and when the people suffer a misfortune, the people wait turn represented in them. A Kings must be able to be, but it must not turn them into cold and distant persons; in Spain it is said that the Queen does not cry, that the Queen can contain her emotions ... and when she cries, the people feel it furthermore nearby, and it ultimately is good.

I not to place photos here, but probably there exist members' photos of the Spanish Royal Family, if not crying if with torn gestures of pain. The Queen in a funeral for a few children who died in an accident of autobus, the Princes in the funerales of a few young men, the Infanta Cristina crying in the funeral of 11M...

Showing grief is not ''letting down your standard''. If the royals didn't show emotion and at the funerals of their loved ones, they wouldn't be human.
