Queen Sofia will continue in Spain and maintain activities after the departure of the emeritus king

The decision by King Emeritus of Spain, Juan Carlos I, to live abroad will not change the situation of his wife, Queen Sofia, who will remain at the Palacio de la Zarzuela, in Madrid, and institutional activities.

The mother of the current king, Felipe VI, was left out of the controversies involving her husband because she has nothing to do with the alleged business in which Juan Carlos may have participated, sources at the Spanish Royal House said on Monday.

Juan Carlos I and Sofia have been estranged on the sentimental plane for several years, although they continued to live in Zarzuela as members of the royal family after his abdication in favor of their son.

Queen Sofia has always been a reference for her son Felipe VI, who has acknowledged this in public on several occasions. The last one was in December 2018, on the occasion of the tributes for the 40th anniversary of the Constitution, when he praised his mother’s “permanent and committed support” one month after her 80th birthday.

In May 2017, he also expressed “recognition and admiration” for the “great example” she set and for the “humanity and commitment” shown in favor of the most disadvantaged.

Since the abdication of Juan Carlos I, Queen Sofia’s public role has diminished, although in addition to her activity as part of the royal family, she has continued to show solidarity, supporting initiatives such as the fight against pollution in the seas.
