Queen Sofia of Spain Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by U.S. University

ALICANTE, Spain – Queen Sofia of Spain, mother of the current King Felipe VI, was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize on Monday for the second year running.

According to the Spanish Centers for Networked Biomedical Research (CIBERNED) director Jesus Avila, she was nominated by an American university, though he did not unveil which one.

The same university nominated the Queen last year for the prize, for her Queen Sofia Foundation’s contribution to Alzheimer’s research as well as for her work for the environment and for underprivileged people.

Avila said she deserved the Nobel Peace Prize for her frequent work which often goes unnoticed, though he recognized that the competition was very tough.

During her 37-year reign, she carried out intense humanitarian and social campaigns, such as being the honorary leader of programs that helped underprivileged people, including drug addicts and disabled people.

This is the year with the most nominees to the Nobel Peace Prize, with 376 people and organizations nominated so far.
