Does anyone know when she started learning Spanish and how is she doing today? Not much difference to native speakers or strong accent?

Is Sofia basically seen as spanish or do people still think of her greek background? Would be interesting to know.
Many Spanish people tell me that Doña Sofía speaks Spanish beautifully whereas her husband speaks it rather unclearly etc. One of my friends went to the same school as Infante Felipe and she tells me that the Doña Sofía used to bring the royal children to their school in her own car etc. She sounds to be well respected by many Spanish people by the sound of it.
