This year there will no be the Breitling Cup, so they will delay their arrival. The King and the Queen will be from July 30 to August 1 in Madeira invited by the President of Portugal.

This article has some info about the SRF spending their holiday 2009. In order to avoid polemic attacks, it will be shorter and more moderate since many people can’t afford to go on holiday at all these days. Especially the yacht “Fortune” has been the centre of controversy as it costs a lot of money, cruising around with the Borbon women aboard watching their husbands sail does lack a bit common sense. But JC also tightens the belt in Marivent with several measures like exchanging lightbulbs, working with less staff, cancel newspaper abos. It is unlikely that the whole family will be together at some point, so surprise here as Cristina is moving to the US and Elena has her own plans as single parent, as last year already.

- neither Kings nor Princes will go to Majorca to attend the Breitling regatta but will only show up for the Copa del Rey at the end of July or beginning of August.
- with everybody working until end of July, there will be more or less 4 weeks to be spend. It is said that the Kings will do a “working holiday” in Portugal / Madeira and that the Princes will go to Asturias with their daughters.

A journalist wrote a absurdity and others have copied it, but some measures (electrical cars, saving of energy, recycling), they are not new of this year. The journalists should find out and report more, and do less demagoguery.

The King, the Prince and the Princess are not precisely those who more use the Fortuna. I know it, speak about Letizia sells more, but if someone has used the ship in the last summers they are the Duke and Duchess of Palma, in this aspect they have abused very much in the last years.

Neither it is possible to say that the Prince had many vacations last year, between Olympic Games, trip to latin America and accident of plane... he did not have so many days.

There was a news about it on TVE a few days ago. The Spanish royal family spend too much money on their summer vacations. No wonder their costs have been cut.

It is not so simple, I do not believe that they spend not much not little, always there are things that can adjust and more in times of crisis.

But not everything is an expense and it also it is necessary to analyze it. The Royal Family is image and advertising for the Balearic Islands, which economy is based fundamentally on the tourism. To have the photos of the Royal Family in the national and international press is great advertising for the tourism. And it is an effect multiplies with international visits like happened with the Prince of Wales, the Clinton, the Jordanian Royal Family...

They spend the vacations in Spain, spend the money in Spain and do advertising of Spain. When the Prince married Letizia the businessmen of the Balearic Islands suffered panic only of thinking that the Prince and the Princess might move their vacations to Asturias.

Yes, I agree with you, LULA. I think the very presence of the royal family in the Balearics and also the fact they spent their holidays and their money there is a plus for a country like Spain where tourism is so important.

A LA CAZA DE LA FOTO SOÑADA / EL MUNDO
The huge amount of photographers are waiting the Royal Family to arrive to Mallorca. They have one aim: to catch a photo of princess Letizia in a bikini, that could give them big, big, money.
Apparently Felipe will travel to Ecuador in August and that will break his holiday.

German press writing about how king Juan Carlos shortens the summer vacation in Mallorca:
Spanischer Hof spart: Zwei Wochen weniger Mallorca-Urlaub - Bild.de

The Queen has gone forward a few days to her official vacations and already she is in Mallorca. Yesterday she was seen for the first time to gather to her grandchildren in the School of Sail Calanova.

This is really cool especially if you have the money. Glad to see that the children share the same passion with their parents.
