I don't think Queen Sofia does a lot of official work these days, but she is not in a position to retire yet.
Yes, she really isn't in a position to say goodbye. I don't think the scandals around JC are buried as deeply in the past as the SRF would like to show.


Still, for Sofia's age, her level of activity is rather remarkable.

Yes Queen Sofia is a pretty remarkable lady and little wonder she's Spain's favourite royal.

That's the former Royal Palace in Athens and must be very poignant for Queen Sofia and her sister to be there.

Video with the meeting with the PM




At the beginning of the meeting, the Prime Minister and his wife presented the works of art of young artists



Then about the course of the pandemic and the improvement that is being recorded.
"Things are generally going better in our country, I think everywhere in Europe, and in Spain I see that things are going better," said the Prime Minister.

"I must say: everyone admires you," said Sofia.

"Be well, we are making a great effort," the Prime Minister replied, referring to the collective effort made by our country to deal with the pandemic.



They then discussed the renovation of Tatoi:
Prime Minister: Did you go to Tatoi?
Queen Sophia : No.

Prime Minister: I would very much like the next time you come to go together and share your memories from Tatoi, because it is a very important job to highlight the place.
Queen Sophia : I think little has changed, after so many years now.

Prime Minister: We want to highlight the whole space, because it was indeed an omission that the space was so neglected. Too many people go. And now will be an opportunity. We have made a very nice study overall for the highlighting of the area, all the old buildings, the tombs ... We will make a very gentle development, we will give life back to the farm we will produce agricultural products and we will make it a pole accessible for all citizens especially of the Basin. It will be something very nice, next time I will be very happy to guide you.
