Queen Sofia and her sister Princess Irene normally arrive in Palma around this time of the year if not already.

The Spanish press speculates that Felipe will travel to the island on July 26 alone, Letizia will wait for the Infantas to return from the US and travel on July 28 the earliest.
The award presentation of the Copa del Rey is supposed to be on August 3 and Felipe is expected to sail during the week.

Thank you for the information! This is a nice time for the Princess and the Infanta to unwind. I'm waiting to see them again on Fiesta Nacional de España and The Princess of Asturias Awards.

It will be nice indeed! Have any other RFs joined the SRF for the Palma holiday before aside from Charles and Diana with a young William and Harry?

Interesting - thanks An Ard Ri. The Greek RF is understandable due to Queen Sofia. Nice that the SRF received a lot of royal visitors to Palma in the past.

Does anyone know if any of the Spanish RF have gone to La Mareta in Lanzarote for a holiday recently? Although we know the Spanish RF's main holiday destination is really Marivent Palace.

Spanish Royal Family Summer Holidays 2017 - 2019

I believe the residence is rarely used by the SRF. It was last used by the King as Prince of Asturias with his family In December 2005 who spent part of their Christmas holidays there.
In 2018 , the president of the Spanish Government Pedro Sánchez spent the New Year's holidays in La Mareta. It was the location for the sad death of the Countess of Barcelona in January 2000.

Not since the death of King Juan Carlos mother, the Countess of Barcelona who died here in January 2000.

Is it known if the SRF have holidayed in the other Spanish islands such as Menoraca, Ibiza, Formentera etc? They have such a lovely selection of places at home to travel to if they want to keep up representing Spain - whilst Marivent is the tradition it seems a pity for them not to spend some time in the other islands!

The summer holidays at the Marivent have only become a tradition since the accession of king Juan Carlos .The Miramar Palace was also used as a holiday residence in San Sebastián in the Basque region it was sold by king Juan Carlos father the late Count of Barcelona in 1972.
