If the Princes are not in Majorca it is a misfortune and there are many critiques. If the Infantas are not nothing happens, nobody criticizes them. The pressure on them and their families is very much minor, and they can do what they want.

I agree with you!

This year there is many expectation for seeing the Princess and the Infanta Leonor. For the Medias and journalis they are the "Summer´s Queens", its the first summer of the Leonor.

The Princess knows it and certainly the Royal Family, for that I believe that they have wanted that the first days were in order that the medias could catch good images of the Princes and the kings and the infanta Leonor.
But there are many days of vacations still . It will have time to see all together.

Ah! And I have to say that the journalists are very satisfied with the Kings and the Princes, because they (Kings and Princes) have facilitate much the work of the photographers and journalis for that they could have taken many images of the Infanta and of the princes and of the kings.

Not to be harsh here, but there has been picture of Leonor on 4 or 5 occasions already the last two weeks or so, she is a baby, not a little show-toy. Its bad enought that the grown ups has to cater their vacation so that the press does not get "furious" its different with the children. They have to draw a line with the children or their risk turning their vacation in to "Big-Bourbon" reality show. Elena and Cristina has so far had their vacation in private which is their right, hopefully Felipe and Letizia will go away for a few weeks as well. They cant let the press decide how they have their free time, it will be impossible for them if the can never have some private time, noone likes their in-laws and parents that much when you have passed 30

Unfortunately, the Cup of the King, it is a " great circus ", the King always has taken part, and with it has benefited the Balearic Islands, the tourism, the businessmen, the press ... he also has had his benefits, how new Fortuna...

For it, some of them believe, that the rest of the family has the obligation to continue what has made the King. Because behind it, there are a lot of political, economic, tourist interests ... the Balearic Islands are a tourist very important destiny, and the tourism one of the economic engines of the country.

Last year the Prince did not take part in the Cup of the King, and the whole people with interests (politicians, businessmen, sponsors, press), they exaggerated the topic of an incredible way.
Last year the Princes travelled 4 days to Asturias, and there was all kinds of critiques.

The Princes are in a street without exit. The strategy is the following one ... we appear initially of the vacations, during the ditches ... but later the press makes us calm. The problem is that the press does not fulfill it...

Where the King passes the summer or where the future King will do it ... it is a topic almost of State ... because behind there are a lot of political and economic interests.

It is not new. Before it was the aristocracy the one that it was going on holidays where the King was going ... with Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eugenia, the famous summers were in Santander, where the Royal Family was establishing in the Palace of the Magdalena. Now they are the politicians, the businessmen, the famous figures or the normal people.

It happens with Majorca and happens with Baqueira Beret.

The Dukes of Palma of vacations with their children

The Dukes of Palma enjoy together with their three children males of a day in the sea. The infanta Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarín passed the day between games and laughs.

The Dukes of Palma have come to Majorca to continue with their summer vacations after passing a few days in Lanzarote. Together with their three children males, Juan, Pablo Nicolás and Miguel, could meet them on board of a catamarán enjoying of the day in the sea.

Iñaki Urdangarín, always affectionate with the smallest, threw a game of cards in cover together with Pablo and more friends who also were on board of the craft while Juan and other friends were playing over the "velas" until an adult warned them of the danger.

The infanta Cristina spent great part of the evening inside the ship though in a moment she went out to converse with her husband.

In this video, it is nice to see how Letizia tries to please the press by having her picture taken. You can see the queen and Felipe not too happy about it, and it almost seems that she insists. Very nice touch!!!

Great! I also think it was very nice of Letizia to 'persuade' Felipe and especially the Queen to have their photos taken by the press!

From island in island
the Dukes of Palm arrive at Majorca in sailboat
the Dukes from Palm were themselves forced yesterday to approach until the Coast of the Pines because of a failure in the catamaran with which they have crossed these days the coast of Menorca in company of friends. Doña Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarín arrived Sunday at Menorca with their three children, Juan Valentin, Pablo Nicholas and Miguel.

The small Irene, that the 5 of June turned a year of age, it does not accompany them in this trip although yes it makes a marriage friend of the pair settled down in Barcelona and its children. The two families are enjoying on board a sailboat of days of tranquillity in Menorca that has only been interrupted by the constant pranks of smallest.

Although, as always, they try to happen most unnoticed possible, the Dukes of Palm cannot avoid to become in center of all the glances there where they go. Thus it happened in the restaurant of Ciutadella Don Giacomo where passed the ten at night Iñaki Urdangarín arrived and five minutes later her wife entered pizzería and the rest of the group. The surprise was general as much for the personnel of the establishment like for the rest of the clients who jammed the premises.

I don't like the green striped dress either! She probably had to wear the sweater because she was cold since she has no body fat whatsoever to keep her warm!

Anyway, it's nice to see the royal family enjoying themselves and that Cristina and her family have arrived. It looks like they have a nice boat as well. Now if we could just see the whole family together.
BTW, I just noticed that we have tons of new emoticons. They're Awesome!
But what is this guy supposed to be doing... ??

She is one of the few lucky ones who are naturally thin. The problem for a lot of people is trying to lose weight.

I don't think she was cold at all. Even if you're as thin as Letizia, a weather like in Mallorca this summer you must be sweltering hot. I think she added the sweater to add drama to her outfit and thought that it would match, but sad to say it actually doesn't .

I think the sweater does match and if you look closely the same blue is in the dress.

Yes, that teal tone is in a few stripes just below Letizia's hips. It's not one of the most strong colours, but it certainly is in the dress.

Additionally, fashion isn't about things being matchy matchy. Fashion can also be about things co-ordinating and complimenting each other, too.

Thanks all for the pictures! The HQ pictures are wonderful too! I myself like Letizia's striped dress, to be honest.
