It was their own decision not to live there, they prefered Zarzuela Palace. Royal Palace of Madrid is massive, the photographs don't make justice, the place is really overwhelming. They only used it for state ceremonies, official receptions ... It's the biggest Royal Palace of Europe, I understand why the royals doesn't want to live there.

But for me, the most beautiful Royal Palaces of Spain is "La Granja de Sal Ildefonso" and Royal Palace of Aranjuez, and Royal Palace of Madrid of course.

The Palacio Real de La Granja is also one of my favourites

The Royal Palace of Madrid will host an exhibition called "From El Bosque to Tiziano. Art and marvel at the Escorial". The exhibition will start in September this year (2013) and will end in January 2014:

The Royal Palace of Madrid has a new room open to visitors. The Lounge Maria Cristina now called Crown Room. The Crown and royal scepter are exhibited to the public for the first time. Also found in the room: the original throne of King Carlos III, the Golden Fleece, the table of sphinxes, document abdication of King Juan Carlos I and the first speech of King Felipe VI.

The Palace of Versailles has a Hall of Mirrors. However it is not the only palace which has this. The Royal Palace of Madrid also has a Hall of Mirrors. King Charles IV was responsible for the Spanish Hall of Mirrors.
It was informative to learn that the Royal Palace was inspired by sketches made by Bernini for the construction of the Louvre in Paris.

I just saw these, this weekend.
The palace is lovely, though the crown rather plain looking
