The Kings moved into Zarzuela when they got married in 1962. They only became Kings in 1975. Franco used to live in El Pardo, when he died, they decided to stay in Zarzuela and use El Pardo as accommodation for State Guests.

The official residence for the Spanish Kings is the Royal Palace in Madrid, but it is too big and too expensive to stay there, hence it is only used for State Occasions.

All property is owned and administered by the Spanish State.

Wow much more spread out, I hear that the Queens sister has a set of rooms and now I'm thinking she could and till be far enough away rom the king and queen to keep space, although given wats been said about the King and Queen i wonder if they live in separate areas.

Looking at the aerial photo: the main part of the palace is the bit above the swimming pool, right? The part below the pool is also part of the palace: living areas? The part to the left looks like support buildings: garages, staff, etc? To the top left there appears to be helicopter landing areas and at the top there appears to be more support buildings. The Prince's Pavilion is not shown, correct?

You are right Harold. The Prince and Princess of Asturias home is part of the Zarzuela's land, not shown here though.

Due to security issues it's difficult these days to obtain an aerial photograph of the whole Zarzuela complex.

Plus we must remember that the Zarzuela is the King's private residence and also due to security issues we won't be able to view the entire complex.
