Summer Vacation 2012

The Royal Family will spend summer vacation in August in Mallorca how each year.

Infanta Cristina and Inaki Urdangarin will not travel to Palma.

Prince of Asturias will not participate in the Cup of the King of Sailing, because the competition is ahead to the third week of July, when the Prince still have official agenda.

I hope they can go to another place. The children deserve a vacation.

The tourism sector in Palma de Mallorca is very upset that no member of the Spanish Royal Family will participate in this year's Copa del Rey de Vela, to be held from 13 to 21 July.

Mallorca has enjoyed for over 30 years of the benefits of the Royal Family from their holidays there, many places in Spain could complain about that. They have also been stupid if they wanted to keep the "business", they should have been less selfish. When the Prince and Princess of Asturias were 5 days a summer in Asturias years ago, in Mallorca the press tired of criticizing (and they had been there 15). I would not want to go somewhere where they treat me like that.

The royal vacation model is outdated, is what the king agreed and wanted 30 years ago when the things were very diferent, and the rest of the family had to assume the obligation.Hopefully this is a change.

As the article says, Elena could have shown up because of the Mapfre/Audi sponsorship.

While I find the Majorca press blown out of proportions with regard to telling the SRF where they have to spend their holidays, I would find it natural that at least one member of the SRF is present at the Copa del Rey event since its about promotion/sponsorship/money etc.

Sailing is an expensive sport and an important markting tool for Spain, I guess without the royal attention the SRF brings along Audi might consider dropping the event. In the current situation I do think that the SRF have to do look after their main business connections carefully. They dont have to bring their money to Spain when the world press is looking elsewhere.

It's not a sad change, it's a welcomed one.

Nothing remains static, and the holidays of the SRF have to change with times as well. King JC & Sofia made Majorca the royal family destination, King Felipe and Queen Letizia are likely to travel more sharing their holidays with a wider Spain.

Duke, there are events more important than a sailing competition, and other events that help more the country. The problem this year are the Olympic Games, the Cup was moved because it coincided on the same dates, and the Royal Family can not change their schedule for that, especially the Prince that has it more complicated.

I think this kind of public holiday is a bit outdated. the royal family should get a rest and spend their vacations wherever they want. no posing and photo calls in their holidays and so on. the photos are nice (sure). but they should get the summer free.

Prince Felipe will participate on Friday at the 31st edition of the King's Cup of Sailing, and he will sail in the Transpac52 "Aifos" of the Spanish Army. Before the competition, there will be a tribute to the Admiral Marcial Sanchez Barcaiztegui.

I always liked the approach, staying in Majorca for a couple of days, taking some "official" pics of the infantas and the family, and then leaving to another - secret - location to stay for the rest of the holidays. As much as I remember, last year, they have been on an Greek island.
Bye Bine

Every year it´s been so with the Asturias. Official pictures ,two or three days at the most and then off to some foreign destiation. The only ones who truly enjoyed Mallorca besides the Queen were the Urdangarins and the Infanta Elena and her children.

Elena enjoyed Mallorca ? She and her family went to Hampton NY every summer. I'm pretty sure She spent no more days than the Princes over the summer in Mallorca the last few years. Cristina, how could she not like Mallorca with all the benefits and business deals she and her hubby had enjoyed out of the local government ? The only person who truely likes Mallorca is the Queen and that's her choice for summer vacation, also her family reunion before her Greek family was allowed to go back to Greece. If Letizia also planned her own family reunion in Mallorca just as Sofia, I'm sure the ones who have been complaining her not liking Mallorca would be the first ones criticizing her family for taking advantage of the public money.

Finally, Infanta Cristina and her children, without Inaki, will travel a few days at the end of July to Mallorca.

Queen Sofia will attend the opening of the London Olympic Games on July 27. Then she will travel to Mallorca with her daughters and grandchildren.

King Juan Carlos and the Asturias will travel to Palma in early August. Dinner with the authorities is the day 8.

Prince and Princess of Asturias will attend the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games on August 12.
