The princes of asturias are not expected to go this year to valle de Arán (skiing) from the journal "EL SEMANAL DIGITAL".


Políticos, famosos y famosillos se dan cita en Fin de Año en Baqueira

Los clientes de Baqueira desearían, sin embargo, ver repetida una estampa que se produjo durante el segundo fin de semana del pasado mes de febrero: la de la presencia de Don Felipe de Borbón con su entonces prometida Letizia Ortiz. No parece nada probable que los Príncipes de Asturias acudan estos días al Valle de Arán. Puestos a especular podrían sacarse muchas conclusiones de la presencia o no de Doña Letizia en la nieve sobre los rumores que circulan respecto a su embarazo. ¿O no?

Does the Swedish royal family spend their summer holiday in Spain every year or somewhere else. And when exactly, if anyone should know?

They have a summer home in Sweden, of course. But they also go to a place in the south of France.

The Spanish royals holiday in Palma Mallorca each year, often centred around some sailing regattas.

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik have a chateau in Caix, France, where Prince Henrik owns a winery.

The Swedish royals also holiday in the South of France but I'm not sure if they own a home there.

The Dutch royals own a home in Italy. Earlier this summer Queen Beatrix, Prince Willem and Princess Maxima with Amalia holidayed there. Previously Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard used to holiday there with their young families.

The Greek royals are increasingly spending more holiday time in Greece, though I'm not sure if they own a home there yet.

During the winters I believe Queen Margrethe always pays a private visit to London to go shopping with her sister Queen Anne Marie. She also has a private skiing holiday occasionally with Queen Sonja in Norway.

The Greek royals own a ski chalet in Gstaad and spend some time there skiing each year.

how about late Princess Diana took her boys to vacation in St.Tropez before she died in 1997 with her lover Dodi Fayed son of owner Harrods and she took boys to skiing in Lech and Balmoral with dad the Prince of Wales before Diana's death when paparazzi still taking pictures of Princess Diana and boys, Prince of Wales.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip often at Balmoral.The Queen also invites other members of the Royal Family to join during these holidays.I think the Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall are spending their holiday in Birkall.

Queen Beatrix and family in Tavernelle, Italy

Princess Christina of the Nl has a house in Porto Ercole

The late Queen Juliana and the late Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands also have a house in Porto Ercole, where many members of the royal family would visit them during the holidays.

Princess Irere has a house in South-Africa

Princess Margriet has a chalet in Lech, the Queen and her family also visit Lech during the winter.

Here is a photo of Queen Beatrix with her family vacationing in Porto Ercole, Italy in 1970:

http://photobucket.com/albums/y138/l...onvacation.jpg

This photo is from an old postcard I own. The back of the postcard says:
"Zomervakantie 1970
Prinselijk Gezin
Porto Ercole"

I believe that this may be the same place that Genevieve mentioned. If this is not the same place, then where did they go in Italy?

Photo shows: Queen Beatrix holding baby Prince Constatijn. Prince Willem-Alexander is between Beatrix and Claus. The diapered little boy is Prince Johan Friso.

This is in the house 'l'elephante felice' in Porto Ercole, of Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard. The house is now for sale. Beatrix and Claus later bought a big medieval farm/mansion in Tavernelle (much more privacy then Porto Ercole).
