A few months ago, King Felipe VI was in the news for an injury to his hand, and now it is the turn of his sister, the Infanta Elena, who apparently injured her foot.
The Infanta Elena attended the awards ceremony of the Madrid Sports Press Association this Monday, an event that was also attended by other personalities from the world of sports and politics.
However, what attracted the most attention was the orthopedic boot she was wearing on her left foot.
What happened to Infanta Elena’s leg?
The Duchess of Lugo surprised everyone by showing up with a Walker boot on her left foot.
According to the Vanitatis report, the daughter of King Emeritus Juan Carlos I showed up wearing a walker boot, a type of rigid brace used to immobilize the joint and provide stability to the foot after a fracture, severe sprain, surgery or soft tissue injury.
The Infanta Elena did not want to miss this event, which she attended in an elegant and sober outfit composed of a long black suit with small polka dots and a light beige blazer.
It is an outfit that she has already worn on other occasions and with which she always succeeds.
To complete the outfit, the sister of King Felipe VI chose shoes in the same colors as the rest of the outfit and with low heels, ideal to be comfortable and elegant.
However, the protagonist was the Walker boot in black tone that she used on her left foot.
For the moment, it is not known why the Infanta Sofia has to wear this orthopedic boot, as the Royal Household has not issued any official statement on the matter.
It is also not known if her injury is related to an accident or a sporting activity. The Infanta is a great fan of several sports.
What is certain is that the Infanta Sofia is not the first member of the Spanish royal family to suffer a limb injury.
Her brother, King Felipe VI, has also had to wear a brace due to injuries.
Her father, the King Emeritus, has also undergone hip and knee surgery.
It seems that the members of the Spanish royal family are out of luck when it comes to their arms and legs.
