Description of Prince Felipe's house, within La Zarzuela (web.de):

Madrid (dpa) - Elf Schlafzimmer, neun Baderäume, drei Wohnsalons, ein Schwimmbad: Spaniens Thronfolger Felipe fehlt es in seinem Prinzenpalast an nichts, sollte man meinen. Doch viele seiner Landsleute sehen das anders, zumal der Sohn von König Juan Carlos und Königin Sofía seit nunmehr einem Jahr die 3150 Quadratmeter alleine bewohnt - vom Personal einmal abgesehen.

... in der Ortschaft El Pardo nordwestlich von Madrid, wo Felipes 4,2 Millionen Euro teures Anwesen steht.
...
Immerhin, das Haus hat Felipe schon. Es wurde für eine Familie konzipiert.

Question: When Felipe marries, do you think the portrait of his mother will stay above the mantle?

Hahahaha--you know I was thinking the SAME thing about the picture!!!! :P
It'll be interesting to see if that picture gets moved when his wife moves in.

That is such a beautiful picture of HM, I would see no reason as to why it would be moved. I sure hope not! What do you think it would be replaced with?

When he gets married his wife might want to put her picture up there since she would be the new mistress of the house.

Felipe's house

I would hope they would replace the portrait. I think back of that photo with Felipe and Isabel Sartorius (the one where Sofia's portrait is between them, looking over their shoulders) and it would seem kinda creepy to leave it there

Felipe's House

I heard 'only' 750 sqm are private area, the rest are offices and else. I'm not sure, though.
With '... seine Landsleute sehen das anders' they probably mean that he is missing
something ... A WIFE!
Well, if they can't decide on the one which would suit them all they should not complain.

I was wondering about that ... how much would be given over to public offices, servant's quarters, servant's pool room and so on? Thank you.

Too bad that its not a case of who they can't decide on, but that they run all the interesting women out of town !!! :woot:

Current residence of HRH the Prince of Astrius, called I believe the Princes Pavillion, soon to be the Royal Residence of HM King Felipe VI. Maybe then they will call it the Kings Pavillion........ :)

Palace of Selgas

I agree, Samitude, it is a very nice house. Even though it is a "palace" there is a very charming and quaint quality to it. I am curious to see what the interior of the place is like.

... Wonder if there will be a big portrait of Queen Sofia over the mantel like there is in the house Felipe recently built! Wonder what Letizia thinks of an oversized painting of her mother-in-law in her home!

What a beautiful house! I am sure that Letizia will be very happy there. Frolicking amongst the statues with her statuesque husband. Sigh. And of course they will fill the place with extremely attractive children....

I imagine that Sophia's portrait will stay on the wall in the house in Madrid. However, I am willing to bet that if any portraits are commissioned for the couple's new residence, they will be of the bride, not the mother.

Don't get me wrong, I adore Queen Sofia, she is one of my favourite queens. But could you imagine an over-sized portrait of your mother-in-law in your family room? In a place where you could see it wherever you were in the room, as if she was watching your every move?!

Creepy!

... Of course the living room would be far better than the bedroom ...

As long as there is a picture of his mother-in-law, I don't know why she would complain.

Oh brother! :P Side by side portraits of his and her in-laws!

I love my mom, but really, I don't think I could face a 20 x 32 portrait of my mom looming over me each morning! That would surely be a reason for me to avoid the room.

nice palace!

But I think the grounds need some sort of refurnishment (i think that's not the right word) I am referring to the small road! It looks like its going to be muddy whenever it rains and dusty when it's hot!

But the place is nice especially the gardens!
