It’s not just the kids who wear matching outfits in Spain. Mom joins in too! I bet Felipe looks back on photos like this and is happy he’s not a “Felipa”.

On a more serious note, it has been announced that Juan-Carlos will be withdrawing from public life beginning on June 2nd, five years after his abdication. “I think the moment has arrived to turn a page over in my life and complete my retirement from public life.” Queen Sofia is expected to continue business as usual. We here at The Handbag wish him nothing but the best in the years to come.
