The princes arrive at Lanzarote

The institutions of Lanzarote have accepted with resignation that the visit of Princes de Asturias has a strictly private character. But a group of children thinks that Their Heights will visit them in their school, a free interpretation of the letter that to Don Felipe and Doña Letizia sent announcing their arrival.
The past month of November the students of the Public School of Yaiza received an official photography of Don Felipe and Doña Leticia with a message where review that "in a moment will visit Lanzarote". The missive one was the answer to a congratulation that this educative community lanzaroteña sent to Princes de Asturias by the birth of infant Leonor.

Their Heights and the small infanta arrive today at the Island where they will remain by space of six days, being predicted that they return to Madrid next the 30 of December. The baby will turn his second month of life between the islanders, being this one his first trip. For that reason, the institutions and associations of Lanzarote prepare presents for insignes so guests, although all the administrations have been very cautious alleging that "it is necessary to respect his desire of privacy". In any case, some city councils will make arrive gifts at the Mareta and the industralists thank for the real visit enormously.

The Princes and Infanta Leonor are in Lanzarote. This Tuesday is predicted that they put before means.

The stay in Lanzarote of the future monarchs of Spain will be watched over a reduced number of security agents of the Real House, unlike which it happened to the visit of the Kings to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of his ascent to the throne.
For this Tuesday, Princes de Asturias and the Infant have predicted to put before mass media. A good opportunity to return to see close by to the small Leonor.
