Great last 'Queen' appearance in terms of jewellery - she can wear the regal statement pieces so well
To me, I saw sadness not aggressive statement. I always liked Sofia and felt so sorry for her miserable marriage. She seemed to have so much love to give and had to settle for expressing it to children and country. Now I truly believe she will become the best grandmother possible. She looked lovely and will always look that way. I believe Spanish history will be changed by this woman in some great way in future because of her strength and morals. Her husband's last years of sandals will be overshadowed by this lovely woman's deeds.
