You can see in the photos posted by marezdote that Miguel actually has a rubber ring or something close to that...

I know I'm becomming borring with this question, but WHERE ARE THE PRINCES??? We haven't seen them for almost two weeks! In my opinion, they might have gone to Asturias, but the press still doesn't know anythink about it.

As I have read the children swim since they are 6 months old, it is supposed that it is easier than the children learn to swim when they are babies because they float in an innate way (the theory says something like that how the children feel in the water of a way similar to how they find in the mother uterus)

The little girl behind Iñaki, yes she has rubber ring .... but not Miguel !! :) that's so funny ! he is just 3 !!!!!!

Lula, thanks for your answer, in fact I know it that for babies it's something innate, but when you are growing up, it is not anymore ! soooo ... I think that these boys have taken some swimming lessons ?! or because they live in Spain (near the sea ... ) it helps I think

But that's really funny to see this little cutie swimming like a fish !!!!!

Miguel has a similar thing (in yellow) to the one wore by the little girl (in green).
You can see Iñaki giving it to Miguel in this photo:

I'm talking about the orange rubber ring that the little girl behind Iñaki and Miguel has on her arm
For me the thing that Iñaki gives to Miguel is not a rubber ring, it's something to have fun ! So I presume that little Miguel knows to swim if they let him going into the water with only that ....
That's great !

The princes of Asturias are back to Mallorca. This weekend Don Felipe and Doña Letizia, after enjoying week and a half of privacy, returned to the house of Son Vent, within the enclosure of Marivent.

Where have they been? Some people say they were in a Greek island (although I think they had no reason to go away to look for a Mediterranean island, since they already were in one…). The renewed interest of the Greek cousins of Don Felipe by his lost kingdom stresses this theory, although the Princes of Asturias have already travelled to the Aegean last year, to attend the Olympic Games of Athens. Also there are some people who assure that the Princes have been in Asturias. I believe more in this possibility, although evidently not at grandmother Menchu Alvárez del Valle’s home, where they could not remain unnoticed. And still, there’s a third possible destiny for the recent escape of the Princes: the Czech locality of Cesly Krumlov, in the heart of Bohemia and next to the Black Forest, a paradise that not many tourists have discovered yet. The Princes have escaped to Cesky, whenever they needed to disappear, as it happened on November 1st, 2003, when the engagement was announced.

The return of the Princes to Mallorca can be justified with the commitments they have to other members of the royal family, who they have abandoned these days in the hands of all the photographers of the island. The gold medal of this summer must thus be given to Infanta Cristina, whose children are the joy of the island. Even little Irene Urdangarin had to feed the cameras.

Also the Queen knows the worth of a good image, although sometimes she requests a break, in order to be able to go shopping with tranquillity. Doña Sofía, accompanied yesterday by her daughter the Duchess of Palma and her sister, princess Irene, strolled by the centre of Palma, and later she went shopping to El Corte Inglés. It is not the first time this summer as (although this mall is, for many people, the temple of consumption), for Queen Sofia, it’s a tranquillity oasis. Even if it’s unbelievable, nobody bothers her and even the employees act as if they did not recognize the lady.

-----------

These days the regatta Ulysse-Nardin will take place in Mallorca, with the participation of the Aifos (a sailboat of the Navy, whose crew trusts the Prince to return to its helm). At the moment, favourable winds blow over Palma and the news of their arrival begins to be noticed. They have taken a few days of rest and now we are eager to receive them with open arms, like a prodigal son.

For what I read they continue without having not even idea wherefrom they have been, do not even know safely if they return today or not, it seems that they have could hide good, I am glad for them, this way they will have rested, because they are going to leave in alone not even a minute.

Great, they are back! It's unbelievable, that nobody have seen them, but it's good for them.
Is it certain, that they had gone to Czech after announcement? I didn't know about that.

Thanks lula for the new pictures. Nice to see Elena and her family have joined the rest of the Spanish royals now in Mallorca. Nice hat she's wearing, too! :)

Can anyone tell me who the man with the little girl behind Cristina is in this picture: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=180342?

Thank you Elsa and lula both for the answer. :) I thought he looked familiar but wasn't sure.

And my mistake about mixing up the little boy for a little girl -- must be the newscom watermarks that threw me off!

Will the Greek royals be joining the Spanish royal family at all this year? Usually Constantine and Anne Marie make an appearance with some of their children.

Good question... I guess we well can expect that for later this month.
Just one more thing: it's so good (and unusual...) to see Jaime smiling that way! :)
