Bigbig thanks from me too for your wonderful pics, J!
It's great to see so many pics of her younger years, there are many I had not seen before! Thanks!
Here is a pic of Sofia from the 1990s together with Queen Noor and King Hussein:

Thank you so much Juanita!

I always missed seeing photos of Princess Sofia with her family; so it is heart-melting to see that intimate and family pics of them.

Makes us feel a less lonely Sofia by seeing the photos and observing their smilling and happy moments.

Thank you very much for sharing your work with us, it is very appreciated.

Regards,
mtbcm

You're most welcome, mtbcm and S!
I'm very happy you all liked them!

This one is very sad... the Queen doesn't like this photo, but she doesn't say why. The King doesn't agree because as he said that photo shows her love (biography information )

No, princess leonor. This one was taken during Don Juan's funeral in 1993.

Beautiful pictures of the young couple! Thanks for sharing!
Who's the woman walking next to Sofia here?: http://img164.imageshack.us/my.php?image=1296pb0.jpg
Is it Princess Irene of the Netherlands?

Definately not Princess Irene, she had a different hairstyle in the 60-ties. Besides that, I do not think that they ever met publicly during their mariages to the spanish and the carlist pretender of the throne (except during the wedding of Beatrix). Looks more like Anne-Marie to me, but maybe another lady all together.

Okay, thanks.
I just thought Irene had a similar hairstyle back in the 60s (around the time of Beatrix` wedding) ( http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/8...italienms3.jpgsource: ANP History)

You proved me wrong . But still, a public meeting of the two rival pretenders and their wives is highly unlikely, especially as the Duke and Duchess of Parma were rather involved with Carlism in the late 60-ties and early 70-ties. The couples only met at Beatrix wedding and the courtphotographer was carefull enough not to place them to close together on the grouppicture .

Thanks for your answers, Marengo and Juanita!
I didn't know about the fact that they were rivals... interesting to hear.
