Dona Sofía takes advantage of the rest of the Glass of the King to go shopping
The alarms of all the photographers sounded when the Prince announced that he would not take part in the Glass of the King. They were afraid to lose images of the Royal Family, but the summer is offering instántaneas almost to diary: the Queen was yesterday of buys.
The Nautical Club of Palm was dawning yesterday calmly, with the ships tied in the pantalanes and the regatistas being prepared for the snack and the holiday of the evening. The 'Somni' also had the day off after the Queen, the Infanta Cristina and Irene of Greece they were following the ditches from its cover. Dona Sofía,her sister and her daughter changed yesterday the science of navigation into the buys. A stream of official cars was competing during the morning in the center of Palm. The Queen, the Infanta and Irene of Greece they were first in The Body Shop, the shop of cosmetic products placed in the square of the Mercat.
The last stop was in the big stores of El Corte Inglés in Jaime III. The exit took place discreetly for the back door, where there was hoping a photographer of this newspaper that Dona Sofía greeted with the hand in the gesture that she appreciates in the photo. Then, when her car came up to where the graphical reporter was, she did a gesture to him in order that he was approaching the window. The photographer, incredulous, thought that she was asking him to separate. Nevertheless, the Queen, very nice, him remembered that they were going several days going out and that always they had taken photos. Then, from now, she was waiting to continue going shopping in a calm way without 'flashes' of for way.
Educadamente, repeated the same idea a couple of times without stopping smiling, as made clear the photographer to this newspaper.
Dona Sofía is conscious of the commotion that generates her presence there where she goes and tries to pass unnoticed and to satisfy the reporters with a gesture as that of yesterday, removed from the behaviors in these cases.
The photographer, without going out of her amazement, was grateful for the put one and the deference to her with the one that treated him. " The best of my images is for you, Majesty ", he concluded. After this approximation, the official cars left towards the residence of the Kings in Marivent.
Though the summer is not "specially 'fertile" in famous prominent figures, the lenses of the photographers see how the Royal Family is present at several social acts, as well as, at the ditches that are celebrated in the Nautical Club of Palm.
The sports test will not give this year images of the Prince Felipe ready to embark in the CAM or to the cane of the same one, but it has brought others that certify the motive for the one that has decided not to take part: to pass more time with the Princess. The inheritor and Letizia Ortiz were proving to be affectionate following the competition on board of the 'Somni' fused in an embrace. The one who did say that the image of the ditches would suffer?
Oh!! How cute!!! :p And yeah, it seems that Irene is growing up very fast, as her tall brothers. :)
Here an article about that from Terra.
The nautical baptism of little Irene
The same day in which she turns two months, Irene, Infanta Cristina’s youngest daughter, received today her nautical baptism on board of the yacht of her grandparents the Kings, the 'Fortuna', from which her mother and doña Sofía watched this morning the fifth regatta of the King's Cup.
While the Queen and her daughter were seeing the regatta from the deck of the Royal yacht, Irene was remaining to the security of the Sun, in the arms of a baby sitter.
The 'Fortuna' came to the area of regattas some minutes before, at 13:00, the exit was given in this fifth day of the King's Cup of Agua Brava, which is disputed in the bay of Palm from Monday until Sunday.
After the exit, the 'Fortuna' went towards the first buoy, in order that the Queen and her daughter, with a prismatic, could see the sailboats, which yesterday, after the regatta in Wednesday, didn't sail.
Today, the King wasn't in the Bribón, eighth in the classification of its class, the Transpac 52, in which other ten ships competed. King Juan Carlos has travelled to Saudi Arabia to greet the new King, Abdala Bin Abdelaziz, and to give his condolences to the Saudi Royal Family for the death, on Monday, of his friend the King Fahd.
Don Juan Carlos will return to Palm tonight, and it is expected that he takes part in the last two days of the Cup: tomorrow and on Sunday.
Before embarking in the 'Fortuna'', the Queen and her daughter were in the Nautical Club of Palm with slept Irene in the middle of the morning.
Dressed in some blue and white clothes, and with a cap that was protecting her little head of the Sun, Irene didn't change countenance when the photographers who were in the Nautical Club turned on their cameras.
Queen Sofía, playing her grandmother's role, took charge of her granddaughter, and she went to drink some coffee in a café while Cristina visited the Azur de Puig's crew, the ship in which she has sailed in previous editions of the Cup.
After talking with the crew, Cristina returned with her daughter and her mother to take the car which would take them up to the naval base of Porto Pi, where the 'Fortuna' was waiting for them to go sailing.
Irene's birth, last June 5, has been the reason of which Cristina hasn't competed this year in the Cup. His brother, the Prince of Asturias, hasn't embarked either, in order to be passing more time with his wife, the Princess Letizia, six months pregnant.
The Princes of Asturias aren't in Palm since last Wednesday evening, but they will return to be with the Kings on Sunday night, when it will take time the delivery of trophies of the King's Cup, which will be celebrated in the Castle of Bellver.
The travel of the Princes took place the following day of talking with a group of journalists in the Nautical Club, who asked them about their holiday’s plans. They answered that they would be a few days more in Palm.
On Tuesday, the Princes of Asturias followed the regatta on board of the 'Somni', and, in the evening, they came to the Nautical Club to attend a concert of the Majorcan singer Jaume Anglada, friend of don Felipe and companion of crew in the 'CAM'

According to an article posted by isabella the princes left Mallorca on Wednesday. So where are they now? In Asturias?
In Asturias they are not, because but the press already would have found out. Besides tomorrow it is the Decrease of the Sella in Ribadesella where the grandmother of Letizia lives, and there will be thousands of persons, so I do not believe that it happens to them to approach there. The journalists say that on Wednesday they went out of Palm, but who knows.
