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.

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.

I have been searching and I have found a story this September about the place where the Emeritus Kings could be buried. According to this news the place may already be chosen but it is not known if it will be in El Escorial. King Juan Carlos does not like to talk about it.

https://www.elespanol.com/reportajes...4467647_0.html

With all the tombs occupied, when the emeritus Juan Carlos and Sofía die, they will have no place in the Crypt of the Kings of El Escorial. Apparently, in National Heritage they are already looking for a solution to this problem. Some time ago, on the table of the director of National Heritage were the plans for the proposal of a work to expand the space, building a crypt with the same characteristics that adjoins the original. But nothing is known about this project, or if it is going to start.

"With the streak he has and the years he already has, I'm sure everything is tied and well tied, but nobody here says anything and another very different thing is that he is not clear," says a Zarzuela worker to this newspaper . "I think he does, but there is no need to go public." There was a time, when he had such a bad time with the issue of the nodule in his lung that was removed in Barcelona, ​​that there was talk that he could be buried in the Cathedral of La Almudena, which he would have commented on, but it is a topic that the boss does not like to talk about, he still feels young ".

Casita del Infante of El Escorial
Also known as the Casa de Arriba, in reference to its location in front of the monastery, it was built by the prestigious court architect Juan de Villanueva in the Herrería forest.
King Juan Carlos lived here before he was married.
The Casita was built near the Renaissance monastery-palace of El Escorial between 1771 and 1773.

La Casita del Príncipe o Casita de Abajo
The Casita del Príncipe (Spanish for 'Cottage of the Prince') is an eighteenth-century building located in San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Spain. It was designed by the neoclassical architect Juan de Villanueva for the private use of the heir to the Spanish throne Charles, Prince of Asturias, and his wife Maria Luisa. It was constructed in the 1770s and extended in the 1780s.

The copper or guild plates with the names of Don Juan and Doña María de las Mercedes seem not (yet) ingraved.

The names of centuries old deceased Kings and Queens are better to read than these two newest additions to the pantheon.

Probably the artisan to ingrave these plates will do it at a later time.

It is probably because to introduce the bodies in the sepulcher they must spend at least 25 years in an adjoining room "el pudridero" (rotting room). Victoria Eugenia was transferred in 2011, and the Count of Bracelona has not yet been transferred.

But why are the names then already on the plates. I had thought that this would only be done at the moment they are transferred.
