The King & Queen of Spain held video conferences with the Aldeas Infantiles SOS España, PHB, and the Spanish hotel sector
The King and Queen of Spain held multiple video conferences from their home within the Palace of Zarzuela.
Queen Letizia held a video conference with the directors of Aldeas Infantiles SOS España (SOS Children's Villages Spain) where she was informed of the effect the pandemic is having on vulnerable children and families. The organization has seen an increase in families needing help during this challenging time. In response to the crisis, SOS Children's Villages has created an emergency fund to support 8,500 children and families, helping them meet their most basic needs. In addition, it has created a service to take care of the mental health of its professionals who work on the front line.
Their Majesties held a video conference with Projecte Home Balears - an organization that cares for people affected by drug addiction.
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia later held a video conference with the heads of the hotel sector in Spain who underlined the negative impact on the industry. The heads also expressed concern for the future, fearing Spanish regions may suffer the complete loss of the summer tourist season. Furthermore, momentum will take time to return when the crisis is over to revert back to normal growth rates, estimating that the majority of the sector will have to work at a loss while regaining public confidence.
Over the weekend Their Majesties conversed with hospitals in Seville, Malaga, Alicante, Murcia and Zaragoza. Along with the Director-General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the President of the Portuguese Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.
I will no longer comment on Her Majesty's attire during this crisis unless I feel it is notable or the pieces are readily identifiable. Please feel free to respectfully discuss Queen Letizia's outfit or any relevant matter in the comment section below.
