This is probably a question that has been asked before but....... why is it reported that 'The Kings' plural move tomorrow to Palma when it is only one 'King' singular that is in fact going anywhere.
I have seen this comment before and have continued to wonder. I would appreciate an answer to this perplexing question. With thanks.

It is a problem of the language. In Spanish the plural ones are in the habit of being done in masculine

King - Rey Queen - Reina King and Queen - Reyes
