Queen Sofia enjoys a musical evening with loved ones in Marbella

It is in Marbella that the queen emeritus Sofia was seen on July 20 with her relatives. His sister, Princess Irene of Greece and Denmark accompanied him, as is often the case on vacation or during a musical outing. Sofia and Irène reunited with their friend Alia Tabbaa, ex-sister-in-law of King Abdallah II. Married in 1987, Alia and Fayçal have four children. They divorced in 2008 and the King of Jordan’s brother has already remarried twice since then.

This Wednesday, a little Florentine air hovered over the Costa del Sol. The Maggio Musicale Fiorentino choir and Maestro Zubin Mehta took the stage at the Marbella Arena, which is the old bullring in Puerto Banús. Zubin Mehta, former director of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, is a great friend of Queen Sofia. Another surprise guest has reunited with Queen Sofia. This is the former Nancy Kovack, known for her role as Sheila, the ex-fiancée of Samantha’s husband in MA beloved witch. Nancy Kovack married Zubin Mehta in 1969.

The concert was organized by Sophie Karoly, the young wife of Francisco de Bourbon, son of the Duke of Seville, as part of the Encore Festival. Queen Sofia’s visit to Marbella has caused a lot of talk in the Spanish press because, as El Debate reminds us, it was here that a tragedy took place a few days ago. A shooting broke out at a Marbella nightclub as Queen Sofia’s grandson Felipe de Marichalar celebrated his birthday there. Wind of fear within the royal family, the son of the Infanta Elena is safe and sound.
