Did you notice that the King has become fat again ? I wonder what's going on with his health.
I though JC looked ok, not as bad as earlier this year

I heard about Varela living in Paris now too. Of course that's the place to be for a world class designer I don't get the obsession with Varela and his mediocre designs at all, ignoring most Spanish designers, especially the small ones who battle for survival, but supporting a man who doesnt even live in the country any longer.

Yes donna, in the end many times prince Felipe changes his plans to meet his parents and sisters, and in the end Letizia always pays.

Also, the press always forget that princess Letizia has her own family, and we don´t know how they are organized. Perhaps if she had as queen Sofia free to invite family and friends when and where she wants, things would be different.

I've never quite understood why some people in this forum have so many problems with Letizia, Leonor and Sofia.

Leonor and Sofia are stunning looking girls receiving a first class education.
So it should be considering they are 2nd and 3rd to the throne in Spain.

They may be still shy in front of dozens of photographers considering their age (Leonor is not yet 8) but it doesn't mean they're are "robots" or "controlled". Leonor is not more controlled than Amalia of the Netherlands or Elizabeth of Belgium. All sweet kids learning early on about their responsibilities ahead.......a heck of a responsibility considering they'd be Head of the State of their own countries.

As to those posters who prefer reading the crap/yellow press in Vanitatis, there is a less gossip driven but a more realistic article....

Letizia, detrás del posado mallorquín. Un posado, muy pensado

Enjoy

According to Hola, Irene had an accident on Saturday in Marivent. She hit in the head playing in the pool and spent 24 hours under observation in hospital.

It also says that the king back tomorrow to Madrid, and infantas Leonor and Sofia return with him on the official plane. The Prince will stay the weekend with his mother.

Hola has changed the news ... Now the write that was a slight hit and Irene was only half an hour in the hospital ... and this in Spain is called journalism.

Poor little Irene. But this often happens with kids when they are playing.

Indeed Felipe changed his plan at the last minute, but it was known that he had wanted to spend more days in Mallorca this year due to the rough situation in Spain and in the SRF itself. At the end he was not able to convince his wife to stay with him in Mallorca for more days, she still came in late, left as soon as the 'duties' were over.

We do not know what prince Felipe really thinks, we only know gossips that often do not come close to reality.

During the Cup the only day that the prince was relaxed and talking to the press, was the day of the trophies he had spent with the family and not sailing. He sails on a ship of the Navy to meet the commitment, but not even sails with his group of friends. He is now in Mallorca with the girls, but with no interest in appear publicly.

If the family plan was simply to return to Madrid, maybe that would be more beneficial for the image of the prince and the current situation of Spain to continue sailing yacht in Mallorca. The press wants Letizia in Mallorca to generate money, but for the majority of Spanish holidays in Majorca are a sight posh.

The only one who seems genuinely interested in continuing the show of Mallorca is queen Sofia, but if her sister, her cousin or friends were not allow in Marivent, probably would not want.

Yesterday I read in a magazine that the princess and girls came two days later, simply because the girls were doing a course in July in Madrid. Sofia is not even old enough to go to sailing school, where her cousins ​​spend 8 hours a day.

I do not know if it was the arrival of the king, or the new information on Cristina and Noos ... but for me it is clear that if Prince is in Mallorca is because there is some issue. All men of the King's House are this week in Marivent. Zarzuela communication has changed from not want to give any details because it is vacation, to explain everything and doing it very clumsy. And when you change your mind so fast, is because there is an interest in giving an information to hide another.

Royal watcher are discussing a possible marriage crisis (Mariangel Alcazar), I don't believe this, F&L will never split up IMO. I find it only natural that partners in a marriage will spend time apart (what in this case unfortunately will nurture the image of the Princess detesting the Mallorca environment).
¿Qué ocurre entre los Príncipes de Asturias? - Noticias El programa de Ana Rosa - EL PROGRAMA DE ANA ROSA

Having said that, they've had the toughest half year of their marriage so far, what must be hard on their relationship, with the Noos case (Cristina & Inaki as neverending SRF reputation killers), personal image desaster ('Adios Princesa') and becoming the target of outrage against institutions (being booed in public).

Summer is a time with no issues, and like every year the press speculates about princess Letizia, because they have to talk about something and she is a very lucrative business (the photographers recognize that without Letizia and girls there is no business). It's crazy nonsense. The other members of the royal family can do what they want, they do not have a critique... but whatever Letizia does she is criticized.

Princess Letizia can not spend a weekend with her mother, going to a concert with friends or go shopping alone ... without the press make a fuss about it. And do it and let the Prince two days with the girls, is the biggest scandal in the world.

But as in this case the Royal House itself has decided to change its policy of not give information about the vacations, seems that either they are the most awkward press office of the world or they wanted the controversy. And in the second case, or is there a lot of desperation to keep Juan Carlos on the throne, or they want to keep the press distracted while the real news emerges (and for that they have used Letizia the past 10 years).

I don't see anything wrong with Letizia spending time with her family,it must be a slow season in Spain for the media
