"Dressed to make history"

Su Majestad la Reina ha inaugurado en el Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid la exposición "Vestidas para hacer historia. 1860-2004", una muestra de más de ciento cuarenta imágenes del fondo de la Agencia EFE, en la que puede contemplarse la evolución del papel de la mujer en los últimos 145 años. La exposición, que estará abierta hasta el próximo 3 de octubre, se compone de tres grandes áreas: Desde 1860 hasta 1940, de 1940 hasta la llegada de la Democracia, y desde 1976 a nuestros días.
(Madrid, 8 de septiembre de 2004)

And something from the last Tuesday:
Su Majestad el Rey saluda al Presidente del Comité Nacional de la Conferencia Consultiva Política del Pueblo Chino, Jia Qinglin, en la audiencia que Don Juan Carlos concedió a una delegación de esta organización, que se encuentra de visita en España.
(Palacio de La Zarzuela. Madrid, 7 de septiembre de 2004)

From the other day but a beautiful image of Queen Sofia

SEPTEMBER 24: Queen Sofia of Spain presents the Gold Medal to Anais Garcia of Spain for her victory in the Womens 100m Freestyle S11 Final, on September 24, during the Athens 2004 Paralympic Games at the Swimming Pool in the Olympic Sports Complex Aquatic Centre in Athens, Greece.

Recently there has been a lot of talk about the level of Queen Silvia's Swedish, not to mention past cases like Henrik's Danish or the Belgians' Dutch, but I was just wondering how Queen Sofia's Spanish is. Obviously she was born in Greece and I have read before that she speaks English with her husband and kids, so I was just wondering if her Spanish is perfect or if she has an accent or what...thanks!

The King and Queen look so happy in the picture of just the two of them!

:)

The Prime Minister of Bulgaria, former King Simeon of Bulgaria's wife, Queen Margarita is also family of sorts for King Juan Carlos. She is the sister to one of the husbands of King Juan Carlos's sisters. Did either of the King of Spain's sisters attend? Also, the King and Queen of Bulgaria have several children who live in Spain -- did they attend this private dinner at Zarzuela too?

I'm glad that the Infantas and their husbands attended this dinner too. I thought that after seeing the gala dinner pictures of Letizia and Felipe the other night that maybe Cristina and Elena wouldn't be participating in these sorts of events anymore because Letizia was now on the scene. Can't wait to see more pictures!

The King and Queen received today the Latvian president Vaira Vike-Freiberga. They had lunch together with Felipe and Letizia and later there'll be a Gala Dinner.

Queen Sofia and Iñaki Urdangarín were also at the Prince of Asturias Awards. The Queen was wonderful.
With that pink jacket that she already has worn the other day, she looks fantastic.
Here some pics:

Thanks for these pictures isabella.

The Queen and Letizia both look wonderful. I'm glad that Sofia attended the awards this year; I always looked forward to her attendance at Felipe's side in previous years. I'm glad she didn't decide to stay away because it was Letizia's first year.

Is there a reason that Inaki attended, too? I've never seen him at these awards in previous years. And why Inaki but no Cristina? (Not that I mind seeing the very handsome Inaki out and about with his in-laws, but just a curiosity.)

Alexandria, Iñaki also attended the ceremony last year because he is president of the jury of the Prince of Asturias Sport Award. Cristina didn't attend last year either and I believe that she has never gone to the ceremony.
And I suppose that apart of Queen Sofia, no member of the Royal Family has never attended to don't overshadow Prince Felipe, and this year for first time, Princess Letizia.
Not even the King has gone never, so...
