Afterwards, they will go to the City Hall of Palm. That same day, the heir to the throne will have an extraordinary meeting with the Counsel of the Independent Community, before attending, along with his wife, a lunch offered by the Balearic Executive in a Palmesean hotel, for what are invited institutional representatives and civil society.

On Tuesday 10th, after visiting the Balearic Parliament, they will travel to the Mallorcan locality of Inca, where they will meet businessmen and trade unions, and afterwards they will visit the Cooperative Esplet de Sa Pobla. That day, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia will have lunch in the Formentor Hotel with enterprising young people, among them sportsmen, musicians, businessmen, artists and scientists. In the evening, they will go to the Economic and RightSchools of the BalearicUniversity, to meet the director, who will explain them the university’s situation and its projects.

Besides they will have lunch with authorities, mayors and members of the industrial sector and, afterwards, they will accompany the cheese manufacture in the factory of Coinga, in Alaior. Then, they will go to Ciudadela, where they will cross the Plaza del Borne, and visit the Cathedral of Menorca. The day will end with an official reception with authorities and civil society.

Thursday 12th, the Princes will travel to Ibiza, where they will be received by the insular authorities, and then they will be go to the Hall of Pitiusas, where they will meet aerial and marine transport businessmen and have lunch with authorities, mayors and businessmen. In the evening, they will be travel by helicopter to the island of Formentera, where they will visit the City Hall and hear the explanations about the project of the new hospital. Finally, a reception offered to the civil society in a hotel of Ibiza will put a full stop in the stay of Princes in Ibiza and Formentera.

On Friday 13th, the last day of this official visit, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia will visit the therapeutic community Ses Sitjoles, in Campos, as part of the Project Hombre, and later they will go to Valldemossa. In this Mallorcan locality, they will visit the headquarters of the Foundation for Sustainable Development, and meet the mass media directors of the Islands. After that, they will have lunch with representatives of environmental organizations.

Uff! I’m tired just of translating the program… I guess Letizia is definitely not pregnant, after all… :o

Not to add wood in the fire, but Mary went to Japan in the early stages of her pregnancy, so, this doesn't mean anything, yet... let's just wait a while longer... (after all, we've been waiting for almost a year )

Hi lucys! You were missed!

Regarding their trip, I read somewhere that they might visit the Spanish pavillion at the AICHI Expo in Japan... Maybe it's this trip?

I don't think so, because Spain's day is in late July--Haakon, Victoria, WA and Maxima, and Fred and Mary all went to Japan on their respective country's National Day. I would imagine Felipe and Letizia would do the same.

Personally, I think that this time the pregnancy rumours are true. Pictures are of course tricky but recently their have been a number of photos where she looks pregant. Only time will tell.

I, too, would LOVE to hear an announcement of a new little one on the way in Spain, but I suppose time alone will tell if Letizia is pregnant.

OK, I have been trying to resist comments about a pregnancy, too, but I think CP Letizia is looking a little pregnant in some angles of photos. And.....?wishful thinking.....I think CP Letizia has that newly pregnant "dazed" look at times and yet at others there is a certain sparkle between she and CP Felipe that is just a little different than before. I guess time will tell. I just hope that if they are wanting a child soon that, that blessing is given to them.

Is it true that the Royal House only announce pregnancies after the first trimester?

Yes, it the common practice of most of the Royal Houses in Europe, unless there are other more pressing circumstance that forces them to issue the announce earlier.

They announce after the first tri as it's usually during the 1st tri that anything can happen - like miscarriage.

Yes, as I said before, I'm also convinced that she's pregnant indeed this time. I really think something's going on with her belly, and I'm even more convinced of that, when I see photos like these I'm posting bellow, where Felipe is looking at the belly of his lovely wife... :p
I just find it awkward that a woman in the early stages of her pregnancy will perform such a tiring week, as we will have from next Monday on...
But, you're right, only time can tell (keep your fingers crossed)...

A few more photos from yesterday's visit to ICEX. From SeegerPress:

Besides, there was one more thing that came to my attention. Letizia is wearing an outfit that she wore an year ago - before the wedding and right after the honeymoon - Since she's lost weight since that time, this can mean that she's already put on some weight due to the pregnancy and then she's turning to old outfits to disguise it better.

Did you understand or I confused you even more?
