When the Princes become Kings they will change the faces on the chairs, right?
But if the King died first, the Queen would have a chair like this?

Thanks in advance

The ceilings in the giant Royal Palace are just breathtaking! The red throne room is gorgeous too with it's beautiful chandeliers.

But the Zarzuela... no offense but it doesn't even look like a palace. I'm sure it's a nice enough home but the swimming pool looks like it could be anyone's backyard, although it's nice that they have a pool. What is that white building in the last pics - another side of the Zarzuela?
Well, it's a shame the King & Queen can't take a second home (like other royalty seem to do) and live part-time in one of the other "real" palaces, like the LaGranja or Aranjuez (sp?) or what's the other one called...

Anyway, I thought I read somewhere that when Prince Felipe becomes monarch that his residence will become the new official Palace. Anyone know if it's true?

Members of the Royal Guard take part in the first changing of the guard outside the Palacio Real in Madrid, 12 December 2007. Every Wednesday the guard will be changed in front of the palace in an effort to boost tourism.

The Sabatini Gardens

The Sabatini Gardens are part of the Madrid Royal Palace. The Gardens were opened to the public by King Juan Carlos in 1978. They were built in 1933, in the exact location of the royal stables which were designed by Sabatini.

The Gardens are free acces to the public, every days.

How come the SRF does not reside in the Palacio Real. I know they prefer a much smaller place but one a little bit bigger and grand should be the residence of the monarch. Is the SRF the only RF who's been residing in a smaller palace/castle?

Also the Belgian and the Swedish Royal Families don't live in the Royal Palaces of Bruxelles and Stockholm respectively.

Yes, but they do live in grand palaces like the Swedish royal family. They live in Drottningholm Palace and it is very huge and grand. If I'm not mistaken the Belgian RF lives in a huge castle too. What's the name?

Only Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde live in the "big" castle in Laeken; King Albert and Queen Paola live in a small palace in Laeken Park, the Chateau de Belvedere, where they are living since their marriage. Queen Fabiola lives in the Chateau de Stuyvenberg, also a small palace in Laeken park, while Prince Lorenz and Princess Astrid live in a villa in Laeken park as well.

Is it just me or is this carpet on a staircase in the royal palace the same used at Infanta Cristina's wedding?

Interesting.
It does look the same. It might be extra carpet they had an kept or it could be from the staircase but I would think it would be too long and them not wanting to cut it.

At least I know I'm not the only one who saw the resemblance I guess we'll never know where the carpet really came from to bad :(
