Does anyone else wonder how Sofia, not meaning to sound rude, at her age manages to walk around in such high heels?
I mean I can barely balance in heels let alone walk in them!
Obviously she's used to it but still...they must hurt her feet

if you see pictures, you would notice all the women in the SRF wear very high heels, Letizia because of the height difference with Felipe and the Queen & Infantas because it's the way they were taught to use them, they walk on those heels like they were born on top of them:)

Forgive me what i'm going to say but isn't the first time and isn't the last that the queen appears first and the king after her in the public events. That isn't protocolar!

It isn't!
But once that King said that don't bother him and he also said that he never would be upset with the Queen because that isn't the most important thing!
And the Queen appears first and the King after a lot of times... i remember that in the official lunchs with primer-ministres or with presidents the Queen appears almos always first! But the Queen isn't critized because of that... and i don't know if she already was critized for that... because the Queen is a kind of untouchable!

Also the king has said that Sofía is his life partner, he's the ruler, she the consort but together as a whole they are the Crown (La Corona), so he doesn't mind because he believes they are not two people but one institution.

About the Queen, hell raises anytime anyone tries to say something wrong about her, even from the same journalists among themselves, she has a better image than the King and the people in Spain (and in a lot of countries) love her because of the hard work she has put all these years in her foundation, which helps tons of people in the world...

Just a correction:
The Queen said that they and the royal family are the Crown!
Here is an excerpt but it is in spanish of the book "La Reina" of Pilar Urbano. And if you read it you can see that she said that.

And don't worry about the spanish, I'm latinamerican, so that isn't a problem
