I'M NOT REALLY a monarchist, but bravo for Queen Sofia! During her trip to Saudi Arabia last week, she made a gesture. A relatively simple gesture which spoke volumes: while many Western women immediately don the veil when visiting the area, look at how she dressed, defiantly:

No headscarf, a bright red dress with -though you can't see it in this picture- a skirt at half her royal calves. A message of solidarity with the oppresed Arabic women.

I wonder if she asked for a glass of wine with her meals... that'd have been cool.
