These scenes are soo touching and sad!:(:(
Spain feels very proud of their Kings, they are always with their people when needed the most...
That picture of the Queen kissing that crying woman shows the kind of person and monarch she is: doesn't hesitate to give comfort to those who need it...

I would add that the entire Royal Family is so close to Spanish people that they feel their losses and pain.

Unfortunetly this unfortunate event brings back March 11th scenes of pain and grieve.

In this photo from ELMUNDO.es we can see the pain in Queen's face when she approaches the crying lady.

The Kings preside over a touching funeral by the victims del meter accident

Pain and mourning in Valencia the day after a disaster without precedents. The funeral in memory of the 41 victims has been celebrated in the Cathedral of Valencia. The Kings have presided over a ceremony which they have attended 1,200 people. At the end of the ceremony Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía they have consoled the relatives of the deceaseds, has been one of the most touching moments of an act which they have attended the President of the Government, the leader of the opposition and the maximum autonomic and municipal authorities.

Faces of sadness of the Kings to its arrival to the cathedral. Next to the rest of authorities, the president of the Government, the one of the Valencian Community and the mayoress of Valencia added themselves to the pain the citizens who jammed the Cathedral. Among them, they also were familiar of the 41 deceaseds who have not been able to repress the tears during many moments of the funeral. During the ceremony a special message of the Pope has been read, that will visit Valencia the next Saturday: "My more felt condolence to the relatives of the victims and express my hurt feelings of my paternal proximity to the numerous ones"

The archbishop of Valencia has celebrated next to several bishops and cardinals and a friar who survived the accident of the meter. The message for the families: "you are not single, they accompany families to you by the entire world that they want to you to make arrive its solidarity and its consolation". Before the heat inside the Cathedral, members of the Red Cross have had to distribute water bottles. When finalizing the ceremony, moments of emotion when the Kings have given the condolence to the relatives of the deceaseds.

Not to trivialize the tragedy of this situation and the loss of lives that occured, but the Spanish King and Queen really rise to the occasion under such circumstances.

The sadness, grief and emotion that is evident on the Queen's face in particular is so touching to see, as if she lost a member(s) of her family.

Through the March 11 attacks and when Spanish soliders died in war and the caskets were brought back to Spain, the King and Queen mourned alongside their fellow citizens and shared in their grief. Over and over again I am struck by how emotional the Queen can be and how struck with grief she seems even if she did not know those who died personally.

Her empathy and sympathy with the families grieving loved ones is so heartwarming to see.

It was a tremendously touching funeral.
But what mas I get excited, it was the gesture of the Queen Sophia. On having gone out of the church she was giving kisses with the hand to other attendees to the funeral. It is such a simple, gesture , but full so big of a generosity and a love, which is it does that the Spanish let's love so much to the Queen Sophia.

I agree with all!
I think they are so closed to the people that it will be hard for the Princes be as good as the Kings.
As the King said: "Vuestro Rey sufre con vosotros y comparte vuestra indignación" :(

Yeah!
But the King could say but doesn't feel like this. However, in this case, he feels like this!
And the people love (in this case) the Kings not just for this, because they have been doing a wonderful work for Spain. They have been working for 30 years, and i think most of people didn't realise their importance and their work. And they must be thankful for that!
