PHNOM PENH - Queen Sophia of Spain arrived in Cambodia Tuesday for a five-day visit at the invitation of Cambodian monarch, King Norodom Sihamoni.
The wife of King Juan Carlos will visit a number of Spanish-funding humanitarian projects during her stay, including an anti-human trafficking organisation, and a mine removal project, according to a schedule obtained from a palace source.
She is also scheduled to attend a gala dinner with King Sihamoni on Wednesday as well as visit the ancient Angkor Wat temple complex in the northern province of Siem Reap before flying out Saturday.
Queen Sophia had scheduled a visit to Cambodia last year but returned home minutes after landing at the airport due to a family bereavement.
