Every day is an example of expertise and be. As Queen, I am proud to see her devotion to our country and the ongoing effort to make things right. As a mother, she has taught us tolerance, respect and affection and that mother has always been close, both with her children as it is now with her grandchildren.
As a woman, its adaptation to different situations it faces, it is the struggle to improve the conditions of women in many communities and countries, their unconditional support to encourage the maximum development of the neediest communities around the world. All this has made it become an example not only for me but also for many people.”
Christmas card from Infanta Elena and her children, Felipe and Victoria
In my life, as in others, there have been good moments I remember fondly and dramatic situations that evoke sadness to me . But all the times I have helped forge my character go and learn to overcome the most difficult situations and to enjoy positive .
Among the best , the most significant is the announcement of my father as the King of Spain. I attended it when I was 12, along with my mother and my siblings. There is also a place in my memory for many other good times: the last years at home with my family, travel, with my friends at school, the excitement of seeing my brothers as Olympic champions in Seoul and Barcelona, finishing my studies university, first as General Teacher diploma in Basic Education and later as a graduate in Science Education, my wedding, the birth of my two children.
The sad, the death of my grandparents, Queen Federica of Greece, Don Juan and Maria. And of course, all the times that I have located about suffering for the victims of terrorism and with the families of those affected by accidents and natural disasters. And among the most difficult, the decision to separate myself first and then divorced.”
