Spain’s Queen Sofia visits London
• Queen Sofia on a previous visit to the capital
SPAIN’s Queen has been in London this week doing a spot of Christmas shopping.
It was reported La Reina Sofia spent several hours at Harrods, stopping in one of its restaurants for some food between picking out gifts for her grandchildren.
While criticised for not spending her money in her cash-strapped home nation, it is thought the monarch chose foreign soil so she could pass unnoticed as she browsed the shops.
But rather than staying at Mayfair’s five-star Claridge’s, priced at €2,000 a night – where she stayed during her last trip – this time the Spanish queen contented herself with a room at the €380-per-night Melia White House near Regent’s Park.
