Summer Holidays in Mallorca; 2008

Los Reyes iniciarán sus vacaciones en Marivent el 17 de julio - Actual - Diario de Mallorca

Quedan cerca de dos semanas para que los Reyes inicien de manera oficial sus vacaciones, estancia que pasarán en su residencia mallorquina, el Palacio de Marivent, donde desde hace varios días, jardineros, personal de servicio y miembros de seguridad trabajan a contrarreloj para que todo esté listo a su llegada.
Según ha podido saber DIARIO de MALLORCA, don Juan Carlos y doña Sofía aterrizarán -si no hay cambios de última hora- en la base aérea de Son Sant Joan el próximo jueves 17 de julio, un día antes del inicio de la regata Breitling, competición náutica en la que el Monarca suele participar a bordo del Bribón.
A partir de ese momento, y en días sucesivos, se irán sumando a estas vacaciones el resto de la Familia Real con una gran ausencia, la de Jaime de Marichalar que, tras el anuncio del "cese temporal de la convivencia" entre él y la infanta Elena, veraneará lejos de la isla. Es previsible, además, que sus hijos, Felipe Juan Froilán y Victoria Federica, pasen también un tiempo con su padre lejos de aguas mediterráneas.
El pasado año, el Príncipe de Asturias participó también en la Breitling, a bordo del Aifos, aunque no fue hasta una semana después que doña Letizia y las infantas Leonor y Sofía, se instalaron en Son Vent, la residencia que los herederos tienen dentro del palacio de Marivent.
En esta ocasión, se preve que las vacaciones de los Reyes en Mallorca sean más breves debido a los Juegos Olímpicos, competición que arranca el 8 de agosto y que concluye el 24 del mismo mes. Don Juan Carlos y doña Sofía, grandes amantes del deporte, no se perderán una cita tan importante para el deporte nacional, y es casi segura su presencia en algún momento de la competición.
De momento, lo que si está confirmado, es la participación del Monarca en la Copa del Rey de Vela, este año patrocinada por Audi y Mapfre, que se celebrará en aguas de la bahía palmesana entre el 26 de julio y el 2 de agosto.

The kings will arrive on the island on the 17 of july!!! and the princes of Asturias will follow them on the next days!!!

can't wait to see them during those holidays!!!

Since the times Diana and Charles were spending a few days with the SRF no other royals visited. Does anyone besides the GRF join them in Majorca for the summer vacation?

I've seen members of the Norwegian Royal Family visiting during that (forgive my ignorance on the topic of sailing) race they always participate in. I think that King Harald is a sailing enthusiest and participates, and I've seen Crown Prince Haakon and his family there to watch.

King of Norway spend some days the last year in Majorca for sailling. Also Princess Alia of Jordan spend her vacations last year in majorca with the rest of the Spanish Royal Family.
Prince Frederik and then Mary Donalsond sailed in the yate Fortuna with the spanish kings, during the summer 2002.

My family and I are travelling to Mallorca on the 19th of July for two weeks staying about 20 minutes from Palma so unfortunately I won't be able to see the pictures until I get home. Looking forward to seeing all the children together

I have been anxious for this holiday time to begin. I have been keeping a close eye out for this thread then today I finally decided to come look up the thread and see what the date was they are supposed to arrive. Now I'm really excited to find out this week all should be arriving in Mallorca.

Have fun crm2317 in Mallorca too. I would think that there would be a little buzz about the royals being in that area. This is always a real treat for the media. So possibly you see or hear of something while you are there.

Thanks Aurora810! I'm Excited to be going to Mallorca and staying near Palma it would be lovely if I did happen to see a member of the family but it is a big enough place so I won't be getting my hopes up

While we're all looking forward to the pictures, it would help keep the thread shorter - so we can see the pictures on the first pages when they start to arrive, instead of have them buried deep in the thread - if everybody tried to contain themselves with the picture discussion until there is actual pictures to discuss.

For those who wish to see the previous years, you can do so here:

Los Reyes se trasladan mañana a Palma de Mallorca, como cada verano. europapress.es

The Kings move tomorrow to Palma, as every summer

The Kings will come tomorrow to Palma, where, as every summer, they will establish their residence in Marivent's Palace, as they confirmed to Europa Press in institutional sources of the Island.

As every year, His Majesty will continue in Palma with his activities of office, which he will combine with the practice of nautical sports. Beside receiving in hearing the local authorities, Don Juan Carlos is in the habit of supporting two offices during the summer with the President of the Goverment, the first one of them around the first of August. This year might receive in addition in Mallorca some of the chiefs of State or representatives of Royal Houses who visit the Expo in the next weeks, according to sources of Zarzuela.
