Mari, the Princes had to be these days in Israel, but for evident reasons the visit was cancelled two weeks ago; it was what existed in the agenda this week, on having be suspended they are free, except for the food of tomorrow with Fox.

Biboquinhas, seems that the Prince will take part in the ditch Breitling this weekend, and also the King ( looks like the Infantas that they will go away a few days to Canaries), so probably we see them this weekend, the King and the Prince sailing, and let's expect to see for the Queen, the Princess and the little Infanta in a ship or in the port. In the last years always there has been the photo of the 4 in the Breitling.

The temperatures in Mallorca this week is supposed to be more than 32 degrees celsius, and I doubt we should se the little girl sitting on some ship in the blistering hot weather on the ocean where the UV- rays get even harsher because of the refelction from the sea. All in all I expect a long summer of the press complaining why they cant see Leonor every day. The princes should go away to Iceland or somewhere to relaxe in peace and not turn their vacation in to a public PR show. The press is going to complain anyway.

The sure Fortuna that has air conditioning.

32 degrees it is a normal temperature for Majorca in summer. In the Peninsula we are with wave of heat, 35 and 40 degrees. This there is no the one who supports it.:o

For them it is going to be an inconvinient summer, since they it have been the 3 last ones, because they are not going to make them calm and the press will want to see Leonor always. I imagine that they will escape some days. Always there be those who will get tired of criticizing them for what is.

I hope the will! I admire the sense of duty, shown by the Spanish Royal family and their passion for sailing is obvious, but I think in summer they should be really allowed to relax and IMO this Paparazzi crowded Mallorca is no (Royal) children-friendly place. If I would be Felipe and Letitia I would stay the 1-3 most important days of sailing and then: Adios!

I do not believe that they pass so much time in house because they like it, if they want swimming pool they have it in their house in Madrid. They live the whole year between the walls of the Zarzuela, which in spite of being a great extension of area is isolated from the city. To change a "cage" into other one, it is not what I understand for vacations Marivent is a wonderful place ... but for very wonderful that is, is better the freedom, to be able to do what you want without nobody controls you.

The people go on holidays to relaxing, but also to enjoying, to walking, to knowing places, walking along the beach, for the mountain ...

Did they give her any solo engagements in the near future? Or she always will be the hostess to Felipe? What took so long?
I thought that Letizia as a Spaniard she should has much better way to has solo engatgement than other CPsses like Mary or Maxima which must learned new languages for their new homelands.

Btw. thanks for the photos fanletizia:)

Letizia and Felipe, “princes of Sa Pobla”

PALM. - Princes de Asturias “moved” and “deeply been thankful” have gathered in Sa Pobla the Medal d'Or of the Vila, who Don Felipe has assured will conserve “with a special affection”. “Thanks to all poblers, because we have been witnesses of the traditional hospitality of this city, Majorca and the Illes”, have concluded Don Felipe in their name and the one of Doña Letizia.
And it is that Sa Pobla has turned upside down completely before the second visit of Princes de Asturias. To their arrival and from first hour in the morning, the streets of the city, the environs of the City council and the own Consistorio were finessed completely to receive the heirs of Corona.
In a room to overflow, and escorted to left and right by the president of the Govern, Jaume Matas, and mayor Antoni Serra, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia received the Medal d'Or and thanked for “significant” the words of breath of all the presents.
During his speech of gratefulness, that Don Felipe took in Majorcan for surprise and joy of poblers, the Heir has praised to Sa Pobla for being “an enterprising, shared in common town and that has grown thanks to the effort of its inhabitants and the application of new forms of development, until becoming a prosperous nucleus”.
“We hoped that alive east stays eagerness, since you count on our determined and enthusiastic support. Thank you very much, because you can sentiros proud of your city”, it has concluded.

An article from "Diario de Mallorca"
http://www.diariodemallorca.es/secci...=1153766901029

Thus it showed the mayor of Sa Pobla, Antoni Serra, while giving the Medal and a commemorative diploma to the Princes, in a solemn act that was celebrated this morning in the municipal hall plenary sessions.
The visit of Don Felipe and Doña Letizia to Sa Pobla began at 11,00 o clock, when they inaugurated a seat that the City council has dedicated to them. After their arrival to the new Seat Princes of Asturias, the pair was received by the president of the Balearic Goverment, Jaume Matas, and the mayor of Sa Pobla.
Also they attended the inauguration act the presidents of the Consell of Majorca, Maria Antonia Munar, and the Balearic Parlament, Pere Rotger; the delegate of the Government in Balearic, Ramon Partners; the commander-in-chief in the islands, Jose Emilio Roldán; the colonel of the Civil Guard, Javier Garci'a Rock, and the City council of Sa Pobla in the heat of, represented by all its councilmen, who carried the medal of the Corporation.
The Princes discovered next to Matas and Serra the monolith in which the name of the seat could be read and crossed the new public space, located to the entrance of the locality.
The Heir and his wife greeted the old proprietors of lands, the architect responsible for the project, Rafel Munar, as well as the hundred of neighbors of Sa Pobla who congregated themselves to give the welcome to the pair, between which were several representatives of the local association Is Grif, that works in benefit of the minusválidos ones.
Then, the Princes moved to the municipal hall plenary sessions, where the act of delivery of the Gold medal was celebrated, under the bust of King Juan Carlos who presides over the stay.
Don Felipe and Doña Letizia seated in the main table, in which they were accompanied by Serra and Matas.
The official cronista of Sa Pobla, the writer Alexandre Ballester, read the act of 6 of July in which the City council approved the delivery of the distinction unanimously. The mayor emphasized the will of Sa Pobla “to honor” to the representatives of the Maxima institution of the State, like guarantors of the continuity of Corona.
In its speech, Serra emphasized the historical hostilities surpassed by the locality until obtaining the prosperity by means of the agricultural operation at the beginning of century XX. “The character and enterprising spirit” of Sa Pobla and the “permanent eagerness of overcoming” of their inhabitants also were outstanding by the president of the Goverment.
Also, Bushes expressed the “affection” that the citizens of the islands feel to Infanta Leonor, of whose gestation he was known shortly before that Princes de Asturias made his first official visit to the Independent Community of Balearic, from the 9 to the 13 of May of the last year.
In the course of that official trip, the Princes visited Sa Pobla for the first time, which motivated the desire of this population to express its gratitude to them with the concession of the Gold medal.
Don Felipe, was thankful, in his name and the one of the Princess, the delivery of the distinction with a speech that began speaking in Catalan and in that it emphasized the “pride” with receiving the Medal and the emotion that the recibimiento given by the neighbors of Sa Pobla causes to them “warm”. At the end of the act, the Princes left the consistorial building and contemplated the performance of a local grouping of dancers of Majorcan boleros, whose members were adorned with the island typical suits.
Next, they crossed the seat of the City council, where a thousand of people met to greet the Princes.
During half an hour, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia were shaking the hands of the neighbors, who demanded their attention calling to them by their names. The Princes received several gifts of the citizens of Sa Pobla, between which was a wood balance beam with horse form, for Doña Leonor.
