This is what was behind the "apparent peace" of the final inn .... The place is quite remote, so it is difficult to imagine how many photographers and cameras "the royal family" supports each time they leave or pose for the press.
The girls behave so well, that it is admirable with so much fuss.
Sorry if you can't put the direct YouTube link, but I don't know how to do it any other way

This is so beautiful. Thanks for the clip. As to Leonor and Sofia, everything will unfold at the right time. Leonor will obviously have a much bigger role but I like how the Spanish RF are handling everything.

The problem is that at some point Sofia will have no role in the royal house, and nobody knows when this point will come (Felipe's death or abdication).
Therefore Sofia will have to do royal work until she is part of the royal family and stop and make her own living when she ceases to be, like Elena.
Keeping in mind that her choice of profession is limited by guidelines of the royal house, it will be difficult to find something that not only fits the regulatory but also interests her.

The finnish press tells, that king Juan Carlos and princess Elena went also shopping to local grocery store Lidl in Hanko.
Hämmästyksen huokaus Hangon Lidlissä – Espanjan ex-kuningas Juan Carlos pätkähti muina miehinä ruokakaupan asiakkaaksi! _ Seiska

On the pier, commodore Kalle Niemi met king Juan Carlos and his crew to present a gift. He handed the Hanko Sailing Association's standard to the former king, so that he would have a memory of the World Championships in Hanko.
- He received it and said he should keep the memory close to his heart, Niemi says.

Indeed, you have a point. But I think it's too early to even think about these things. It's hard to predict.

We don't know she might marry a foreigner and live outside Spain. There's a lot of things that can happen. She has plenty of choices compared to Leonor and I think the King and Queen did not fail to prepare them in their future roles.

Actually, I give the King and Queen a thumbs up for doing things right for the children.

Svensk Damtidning has noticed Letizia's personal way of shaking hands.

I believe princess Beatrix shakes hands in a similar way. Just using the fingers. Saves her hands from being continually crushed by people with crushing handshakes.

And queen Elizabeth II and other British royals use gloves which are a perfectly sensible and more regal choice,though I'd imagine its far too hot in Mallorca for evening gloves.

- After the photocall last Thursday, it seems that Letizia left Mallorca with the girls
- Felipe stayed on, possibly until Sunday, on Saturday he had dinner with his friend Jaume Anglada and was caught by a photographer who was prevented from taking pictures
- The emeritus King, Juan Carlos, supposedly arrived on Sunday in Palma.

Speculation is not allowed here but looking at the pictures of the stay in Mallorca I had the feeling that there is something wrong between the king and the queen. They always tried to have the girls between them, didn´t really interact and the king was always far away form her if possible. And I thought he looked kind of irritated.

I felt sorry for Letizia as she tried to always keep maintain the appearance that everythin is well but she was "so alone".

After 8 days with the opportunity to take lots of photos in various places and situations ... there are photographers who do not have enough... it is not strange that Mallorca is increasingly more affixing for them.

King Felipe has done the same thing he has done on other occasions. He and Princess Leonor cannot fly on the same plane, for that reason Queen Letizia and the girls travel on regular flights, from Palma to Madrid, and from there to the holiday destination they have chosen. Once they have reached the destination, the King travels there on the official plane.

On the other hand, it is clear that Felipe will not be able to move much of Spain this year because of the formation of the government. He will probably be on vacation this week (for what they have done on other occasions in a Mediterranean destination a few hours by plane from Madrid) that all politicians are on vacation and next week he will have to return to Madrid, while Letizia and the girls who still have two weeks of school vacations can make other plans.

I think so too. They all deserve a less media holiday getaway.

The media will no doubt spin this into a who has trouble with who story again. I've noticed the Spanish media always loves a good article about a rift between Letizia and another person, be it a relative or friend (right from the outset I remember several tabloids reporting at how Letizia had apparently gotten into arguments with mothers from Leonor's pre-school).

I don't blame her for taking Leonor and Sofia on a private break together. A bit of wind-down is good for all of us, but especially for someone in their position.

Exact.
Every year they do the same since they cannot travel together. The king cannot travel on the same plane as Leonor. Every year the same. Every year the same speculations. Nothing changes. But the press never has enough of Letizia. It's crazy.

Queen Sofia is already in Palma de Mallorca to spend her holidays with Infanta Elena and her sister Princess Irene

Unofficial sources point out that King Felipe and Queen Letizia, together with their daughters, will land in Palma on 7 August .

I think it's safe to say that this year there won't be any private holidays abroad.
