The car bomb that this morning has done explosion in Palmanova causing the death of two guardias civiles there has taken place to only 10 km from Marivent's palace, the summer residence of Their Majesties the King and Queen.

Though the King and Queen and the Prince and Princess still have not moved up to Marivent, the Infantas Elena and Cristina are already in the Palace together with their children.

The Prince and Princess of Asturias will be present tomorrow in representation of The Wreath at the funeral that will be celebrated in the cathedral of Palma at 13.00 hours by both civil guards murdered today in Palmanova's Balearic locality, they informed to EFE sources of the Royal House.

The duke and duchess of Palma and the infanta Elena will visit before the funeral the funeral chapel in the Palace of the Almudaina.

It seems that the funneral chapel is located at Almudaina Palace and I've saw on Tv that Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina with her husdban already arrived to give their condolences to the families.

Spain to hold memorial service for slain policemen

they will stay. royals are role models, the nation will look at them so they can't turn their backs and leave their people behind. any other royal house would do the same. security will be super-tight though and i assume they won't be out and about as frequently as usual during their majorca stay anymore.

It´s always very moving to see how the princes try to comfort the relatives of the victims. They give so much of themselves when trying to help the relatives, they are so compassionate and warm towards them.
