I'm not sure why its called a Palace as its the private residence of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia and looks more like a Manor House. I really dislike the interior far too much wood paneling .

The Office used by queen Letizia is almost clinical and without any sentiment ,no photos or personal effects .

I was wondering if this is queen Letizia's actual office or is it a meeting room

I can't ever recall seeing the office of Queen Sofia?

I don't think this is Letizia's office, but a conference room.
I don't think any pictures of Letizia and Sofia's offices ever appeared.
This is just my opinion, I may be wrong.

The kings office is the most visible visible but the dark wood paneling throughout Zarzuela makes it look a tad gloomy.

It is not just a private residence. As it was mentioned in the clip, the offices of the Royal Household are located there, so it is also a working building.

I believe Zarzuela would be better described as a "Palacete" rather than a "Palacio" in Spanish. Juan Carlos had the choice of living in El Pardo, which is a proper palace, but he declined it, which I think was a correct decision at the time. Besides, the King can always use the Royal Palace of Madrid for more solemn events like state dinners, investitures and receiving the credentials of foreign diplomats.

Spain is not short of royal palaces, but, understandbly, it is in the interest of the SRF to look frugal.
