I agree with your interpretation of events and note that the two posters from Spain are the ones who hold these views

Well then you have to look at the photos better.
Who is holding hands, always, is Leonor
* And of course the girls are with the grandmother; They live five minutes from each other. The strange thing would be that the mother was not with her daughters on a vacation unless the world had gone mad.
I have not seen Queen Margarita on the beach alone with her grandchildren, nor Queen Elizabeth with the grandchildren on the island wherever the Cambrigde or Sicily summer ... or I have not seen Queen Silvia alone with Estelle vacation...
Nor have I seen former Queen Paola forward to Queen Mathilde when they go together and use her position as queen ... but Sofia believes that she is still queen and is only an honorary title so that the poor woman does not kick.
When I read this, all of these words really get into me and I realized you have a point. I have never seen other Queen grandmothers like Queen Sofia. To add, it's not also every time that we see Princess Beatrix playing with her grandchildren. Maybe on official photos but not as much as Queen Sofia.

But all is well. Maybe it's a matter of preference too.

Just for the record:
On some occasions, Sofia jr. is being grabbed by Granny too:

Spanish media say today is the photo shoot of the Kings of Spain and their daughters in Marivent.

It is true. All the Kings of Spain who abdicated in the past continued to have the title of King and their wives of Queen Consort.

But I remember Sofia being more introvert and almost never smiling when they were younger.

I know it's not a negative thing. I was just saying that there was a phase when Sofia smiled little. Maybe in its first two or three years.

It may be a translator's problem, but if you don't understand it, I can explain it to you better, although I think the Constitution is enough.
King Juan Carlos should have been called Count of Barcelona when he abdicated, but the ego of the former king and the former queen are so huge, they didn't want to. The government refused to be "emeritus kings" because that only leads to confusion and is worthless. It's like they give you an honorary chair at a university ... that doesn't mean you're a doctor, right? But Felipe won and gave that title of honor ...
The Spanish Constitutions have never limited the title of King and Queen to the reigning king and his wife. The existing Constitution uses "the Queen" as the title of a female sovereign and "the Queen Consort" as the title of a sovereign's wife.

All of the former sovereigns of Spain who abdicated, and all of the consorts of Spanish sovereigns who became widows or widowers, continued to be called King or Queen.

Thanks for the links

I guess I didn't miss one of the family photo shoots this summer. Have a lot to still catch up on the boards.


The girls look cute and casual. I like their outfits this year not just in photo shoot but at other sightings. They look a bit more age appropriate and less like little girls. The whole family looks nice for the photo shoot.

Great seeing the girls out enjoying their holiday. Swan Lake makes me jealous, my favorite ballet.

The shopping at the market and the movies though are my favorite. Make me think of any other young girl. Reminders they are not just royals.

It looks like a lovely outing.

For those wondering why we see more pictures of queen Sofia holding hands with Leonor than with Sofía; my take is that it is because of the girls: Leonor seems to like the handholding (it might give her the support she needs) much more than Sofia - which also could be seen in today's photosession with Leonor holding hands with her father while Sofía preferred no-handholding.

Lovely photos.


Were there any snippets from an interview or possibly comments to the press?

The girls are always well groomed, like their mother. But I find it rather odd that a 12 year old and an almost 14 year old are wearing matching outfits. And matching hair styles. To me, that suggests a level of control that may backfire on the family in a couple years.
