Summer Holidays in Mallorca; 2005
 
From www.diariosur.es:

Letizia Palma de Mallorca's vacations it will return to assemble the Royal Family in their summer rest. Now the area of attention is the baby for that there wait the inheritors, who also will visit to the family of the Princess in Asturias.

THE bay of Palma will return to receive this summer, since it happens for more than three decades, to the Spanish Royal Family. One more year, the island inhabitant of the Balearic Islands will turn into the point of meeting of a family increasingly numerous that, carried away about the sea, decided in the year 1974 to turn Majorca into the traditional destiny of theirsummer vacations.
If last summer the innovation in Palm was the presence for the first time of the Princess of Asturias, this year the attention will return to centre on Dona Letizia and, especially, on the baby that the Princes wait by the ends of November. But the cameras also will look for the only daughter of the Dukes of Palma, Irene, who might expire two months in the island.

(...)

Trip to the Azores

Since it is traditional, it will be precisely the ditch of the Copa del Rey , who is celebrated the first week of August, which it marks the beginning of the vacations of the Royal Family in Majorca, though at the end of July, between 21 and 24, Don Juan Carlos, Don Felipe and predictably Dona Cristina they will move also to the island to take part in the ditch Breitling.
But this year, before moving their summer residence to Palm, the Kings have foreseen to realize a short trip deprived to the islands Azores, invited by the president of Portugal, Jorge Sampaio, and his wife, Maria Jose Ritta. At the end of July, Don Juan Carlos and Dona Sofía will cross for three days the most emblematic places of these Atlantic islands.
Later, they will return to Palm for the Copa del Rey.

(...)

Without displacements

Another innovation of this summer is that, for the first time in many years, the Prince of Asturias will not have to interrupt his vacations to be present at the, capture of possession of a Latin-American president. This summer, after his stay in Palm Majorca, is very probable that Don Felipe and Dona Letizia pass a few days in the natal land of the Princess of Asturias, since they did last year with the family of the journalist. Removed from the cameras, the Princes will find in Asturias the intimacy and the tranquility for that they look after the intense pace of work that they have supported in the last year and before the agenda crammed with acts that already waits for them from September. And also with the nerves that will have in November.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Only a note on this news, according to a newspaper can that the Princes are in Asturias on the 31st for Baremboim's concert inside the acts of the Anniversary XXV of the Foundation of the Prizes Prince of Asturias; so probably they walk a few days in Asturias before going to Palm and not later like they did last year.
