Is it a possibility that Queen Sophia has requested to be buried in Greece?

From La Razón: Felipe VI promotes the enlargement of the Pantheon of Kings

Felipe VI impulsa la ampliación del panteón de Reyes
Translation

Apparently,Patrimonio Nacional (the institution that takes care of the Crown's monuments), commisioned 10 years ago a group of experts to make a project of enlargement for the actual cript.

They came to the solution of building a new room, with same size and characteristics as the original one, united to the first one through a gallery.

The project has yet to be approved but according to La Razon it will be in the next months.

That will be an interesting project,I wonder why it was never approved during the reign of King Juan Carlos?

It was requested 10 years ago and it took a long time to decide, undoubteldy the deep economic crisis did not help to attach some urgence to these costs.

It is said King Juan Carlos never approved the project because he didn't like to think about his death. According to those sources King Felipe will give his approval in the next few months and the planning can start in earnest.

Will King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia go to El Escorial? Or go to another location? There's room in the El Escorial for more people?

There was talk about enlarging the royal vaults at the Royal Pantheon at El Escorial some years ago but I guess due to the economic crisis it has been out on hold.

King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia could be buried at Madrid's Cathedral Santa María la Real de La Almudena,Alfonso XII's 1st wife María de las Mercedes is buried there.
