Behind closed doors, the Spanish royals proved to be like any other family conversing at the table. As they dined on soup and caprese [salad] near a bay window overlooking their backyard, the King and Queen chatted with their daughters about the weather, homework assignments and Sofía’s upcoming performance at school. Discussing her role, Felipe told his youngest daughter, “It’s complicated to express emotions on the stage… Imagine the actors that have to do it all the time.”
