According to a published report in La Vanguardia newspaper, Queen Sofia will be traveling to Southeast Asian countries hit by the tsunami at the end of February. In addition to "moral support" she will be "delivering" another round of Spanish humanitarian assistance. She will also meet with Spanish volunteers (I wonder if she'll see Letizia's sister who is in southeast asia with the red cross?)

"La Reina, con las víctimas del tsunami
LA VANGUARDIA*-*30/01/2005

La reina Sofía viajará a finales del mes de febrero a la zona del Sudeste Asiático afectada por el tsunami. Tailandia, Indonesa y Sri Lanka están incluidos, en principio, en la ruta real que se realizará de acuerdo con los criterios de la Agencia Española de Cooperación. Este organismo dependiente del Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores desde el primer momento de la tragedia desplazó efectivos y material para paliar las carencias. Doña Sofía no solo llevará ayuda moral, sino también material de parte de España y además tendrá contactos con los representantes de las numerosas ONG españolas que aún están trabajando en la zona"

From Elmundo:

The Kings of Spain offered last night at El Pardo a supper to the members of the Olympic Committee's (IOC) Evaluation Commission, who are visiting Madrid. Queen Sofía's son-in-law, Iñaki Urdangarín, was very affectionate with his mother-in-law, during the banquet.

King Juan Carlos reminded in his speech that several members of the Spanish Royal Family, including himself, have already participated in past Olimpic Games. Also the Prime Minister Zapatero asserted that the project Madrid 2012 unifies Spain in such a way that «all the Spanish people feel as citizens of Madrid».

Love the way she goes down to eyelevel with the toddlers and how she strokes their cheeks,

Is this a special kindergarten, in other words one highly subsidised for parents who both have to work for economic reasons? can not imagine her opening one for the children of yuppies.

As Anna has posted, it's a kindergarten conceived for the Royal Soldiers' children (la guardería de la Guardia Real).

are any new state visits planned?

I had posted a published story that the Queen would be visiting the tsunami countries. The sources had it wrong, next week she travels, but to Northern Africa. She will visit Spanish NGO workers.
