As noted above, the visit to the exhibition showcasing the friendship between Picasso and Miro was arranged after the photocall at Marivent was moved from the garden that showcases some apparently beautiful Miro sculptures. This was the consolation prize and I wouldn't be surprised if the visit wasn't at least partly the result of a friendly "suggestion" from the Miro family/foundation.

Again, great dress for a day at the beach or market followed by casual dinner and drinks with friends. For the situation described above? IMO not the best choice.
Exactly, the outing at the museum certainly wasn't a private activity, it was arranged as part of this working holiday.

Officially they are on holidays and as any other Spaniard they have their right to 20 business days break. It may not be respected but is their right.

During the early days of JC and Sofia in Mallorca, the SRF had one photo op for a dozen or so journalists with the tacit agreement that they would be left alone the rest of their holidays. Unfortunately these days, instead of a dozen, there are 70 or 80 journos waiting for any chance to take their picture in Mallorca. They may be officially on holidays but the paps expect them to be available for pictures. They can't win.

The white dress is perfect for Mallorca (specially when we are in the middle of heat wave). The white is the traditional ibizenco style of the islands, it's linen and short. I've visited the Toledo cathedral in summer wearing shorts and no one bats an eyelid. Obviously is not what some of you wear in your own countries but in Spain, in summer, light and short is what we wear when no working.

Letizia and Felipe looked more formally dressed during the meeting with the Mallorcan community (when Queen Sofia usually wears her flower pajamas ). The only other time when formal dress is appropriate during their holidays is the meeting of Felipe with the Spanish Prime Minister.

Here are some much better pictures from the visit:

A very simple but elegant outfit for the hospital visit and her hair looks much better tied up than loose.

I love her dress at the memorial. It's sad to see both her & her husband looking so devastated.

She looks elegant and appropriate at the Mass.

The sleeveless black dress with pleats was a repeat Nina Ricci from 2015. She wore it underneath the Nina Ricci grey coat to the 2015 La Caixa Scholarships.

She also wore the same outfit combination to the 'In Memoriam' concert in 2016
