Even injured, the Infanta Sofia does not shirk her royal obligations. On vacation for several days with her parents Letizia and Felipe VI of Spain, the Infanta Sofia has made many appearances on the island of Palma de Mallorca, notably with her older sister, Princess Leonor. However, when she arrived in Petra, the young girl astonished passers-by and vacationers, and this because she was ensuring her official exit on crutches.
It was indeed hurt that she appeared for the first time on August 10, for a cultural visit to the birthplace of Brother Junípero Serra, founder of missions in California in the 18th century. An exit that she would not have missed for the world, despite five stitches in the knee. “She wanted to come, to find out what this work consists of”, commented Zarzuela in the columns of Point of View, which adds that the day before this outing, the 13-year-old girl wanted to attend a demonstration in favor of the monarchy.
Injured during her engagements, the Infanta Sofia owes this little misfortune to a fall she had on Sunday, August 9 at the Marivent Palace, residence of the royal family for their holidays in Palma de Mallorca, reported the magazine Holà. Fortunately, the injury was not serious enough for a stint in hospital and could be treated directly by a doctor, still earning Letizia and Felipe VI of Spain’s daughter five stitches. In addition to a crutch, used to prevent her from bending her injured knee, she was able to count on the support of her sister Leonor, who held her hand during her official engagements.
