Spain to hold memorial service for slain policemen

they will stay. royals are role models, the nation will look at them so they can't turn their backs and leave their people behind. any other royal house would do the same. security will be super-tight though and i assume they won't be out and about as frequently as usual during their majorca stay anymore.

It´s always very moving to see how the princes try to comfort the relatives of the victims. They give so much of themselves when trying to help the relatives, they are so compassionate and warm towards them.

those pics are so sad...

It must be hard for them to be able to find words for the families who are suffering so much!
