Los Reyes han presidido en la catedral de Santiago el acto de conmemoración de la traslación de los restos del Apóstol, una ceremonia cuyo origen se remonta al siglo XII y a la que los monarcas han acudido por primera vez, en vísperas de la apertura del Año Santo.

Hello

Spanish Royals Honour Saint James

31 DECEMBER 2003
Spain's King Juan Carlos and his wife Queen Sofia spent the run-up to the New Year in the Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela, attending, for the first time, a religious ceremony dating back to the 12th century at the city's cathedral.

The solemn affair, commemorating the move of the mortal remains of Spain's patron saint, the apostle James, also inaugurated a special year for the Xacobeo, or the Way of Saint James – a historic path followed annually by thousands of pilgrims – for 2004.

After an inspection of a military brigade, the king and queen attended a mass at the Santiago cathedral. And, at the end of the ceremony, the monarch and his wife approached the famed statue of Saint James to embrace it, in line with a tradition followed by millions of visitors who congregate at the sacred spot every year.

Casa Real

Sus Majestades los Reyes presidieron en la Catedral de Santiago de Compostela el acto de conmemoración de la traslación de los restos del Apóstol Santiago. Don Juan Carlos, en sus palabras, pidió por "la paz, la libertad y el progreso", por quienes sufren calamidades como la que asola Irán, y también por el fin de la "lacra del terrorismo, sus muertes, amenazas y extorsiones."

(Santiago de Compostela, 30 de diciembre de 2003)

Hello

Queen Sofia Shows Her Support for Bangladesh Women

Spain's Queen Sofia has been visiting development projects in Bangladesh as part of a four-day visit to the impoverished country. The Spanish royal arrived at the weekend to take part in the Asia Pacific Regional Summit on Microcredit, which is fighting poverty in the third world.

A long-time supporter of microcredit, Sofia came along to address the summit and redouble her efforts to empower impoverished women. It's been four years since she came to Bangladesh to meet with the economist Mohamed Yunus, whose Grameen Bank is also known as the "Bank Of The Poor".

His organisation supports development projects by giving credit to some of the country's most needy communities. On that occasion an agreement was signed between the Spanish government and the Grameen Bank to boost development in the beleaguered region.

Four years later Sofia has returned to see the achievements of that programme. And there was little doubt about its positive impact after Sofia chatted with the workers and families who have benefited from the scheme.

Over the course of its four days, some 1,300 delegates from 44 countries took part in the gathering. The APRSM is aiming to help 100 million of the world's poorest people work their way out of poverty by the end of 2009.

The Spanish royal also inspected the work of local artisans. This woman in the village of Taposkoni showed her how to make a traditional chair.

Sofia was also given a traditional hand fan as a memento of her visit. Economist Mohammad Yunus, who has spearheaded the Grameen Bank's efforts, can be seen on the right of this picture.

The influence of high-tech communication has clearly found its way to this community in Bangladesh. (Too bad none of them had the cell phones with Felipe and Letizia face plates! That would've been funny! :P )

I saw a photo of the whole family posing, I think it was on Hello! and only saw 4 of the grandchildren. One of Cristina's boys was missing. Miguel I assume. Why was he not present with the rest of the family?

I saw that picture, too. Miguel is probably too young to attend. A little boy almost 2 or just barely 2 years old attending a long church service or even Sunday service might be too much to expect of him.

I just love how the Spanish Royal Family shows affection publicly. It doesn't seem like many other royal families do the same. No matter what goes on beyond the scenes it's great that they can put together a united front and be real. When I see the pictures of the King and Queen loving on their Grandkids I can't help but think that one never sees Queen Elizabeth in the same position...
