Memorial for Queen Frederika (25 anniversary, 2006)

http://actualidad.terra.es/sociedad/...ica_722205.htm

Queen Sofía and her children go to funeral by Queen Federica

Queen Doña Sofía, accompanied by Princes de Asturias, the Dukes of Palm, the Infant Doña Elena and princess Irene, attended today in Tatoi the funeral celebrated in the occasion of the 25 years of the death of the mother of the Spanish sovereign, queen Federica of Greece.
In the middle of a remarkable cold due to the low temperatures that are registered in these days in the zone, the members of the Spanish Royal Family arrived at the Palace of Tatoi, to about 20 kilometers of Athens and where Doña Sofía passed her childhood, to attend trisagio - funeral by the orthodox rite in memory of queen Federica, that is buried in a specific zone of the enclosure palace next to her husband, king Pablo I.
The religious office they also attended the ex- king of Constantino of Greece, along with his wife Ana Maria and her children Alexia, Nicholas and Pablo, as well as the wife of this one, Marie Chantal.

no pictures adelaide yet, but i'm afraid we won't get pictures as it's a very private event. i doubt more people appart from the family attended, as the greeks practically forgot of their royal family years ago, so no even political authorities or statesman. probably we will get some pictures of the arrival in the airport, but i don't think there are any photos available of the actual event.

HM Queen Sofia, accompanied by the Princes of Asturias, the Dukes of Palma, Infanta Doña Elena and Princess Irene, travelled yesterday to Greece, in order to attend, in Tatoi, the celebration of 25º anniversary since the death of Queen Federica of Greece. The religious ceremony - by the orthodox rite called trisagio – was also attended by Konstantin of Greece, his wife and children, Alexia, Nicholas, Teodora, Philipo, Pablo and Marie Chantal.

25 years have passed and the Sovereign has returned to undertake an unforgettable and sad visit to the past; a short visit – just a few hours in Athens, where Doña Sofía recovered the memory and the emotion of those years...

Doña Sofia has returned this week to pay tribute to her mother along with the Infantas Doña Elena and Doña Cristina, the Prince of Asturias and her daughter-in-law, Princess Letizia, who had the opportunity to acknowledge the past and the history of the Queen of Spain for the first time.



From the funeral of Queen Federica of Greece, in 1981. By Hola:

These two picture are overwhelming... Through Queen Sofia's veil, the way she is holding her hands, knealed on the ground one can see clearly she is in pain... And we can not forget that during this time Queen Sofia controled herself and avoyed to show her emotions:( .

Thank you Elsa :).

The Princes travelled to Valencia from Athens, on where they travelled, together with the dukes of Palm and the infanta Elena, to accompany the Queen in the funeral informed in Tatoi's royalestate on the occasion of 25 anniversary of the death of the queen Federica of Greece. The mother of the queen Sofía died in Madrid on February 8, 1981 and the Greek government at the time only authorized the return of the royal Greek family for a few hours in order that they could fulfill the desires of the queen Federica to be buried together with her husband, the king Paul, died in Athens in 1964.

Does anyone know who are these people around Queen Sofia? http://img138.imageshack.us/my.php?image=19813ee.jpg

I'm right to say that those are old pics and that those are the Infantas and Prince Felipe?

thanks, carlota ! finally we get some pictures...

it's really sweet seeing each one of the Greek or Spanish Royals have his/her own small wreath with either blue or yellow-orange colour.

Thanks for the photographies are a pain that is not more. It surprises to me that the Greek Royal Family decides to place a photo in which only appears Princess Letizia in its Web.

i questioned that too, lula.

i'm wondering, of all the many photos it must have been available "privately", why do they choose these 3 pictures. the 1st & 2nd ones are ok, and of course, it's always great to see Letizia, but where are the pictures of the Spanish Infantas, and Greek Princes & Princesses ?
will they update the photo gallery and add photos? i can only hope...
