Spanish Royal Family Summer Holidays 2014 - 2016
 
The Royal House has confirmed that King Felipe, Queen Letizia and their daughters will have a few days of holidays in Mallorca in early August

Los Reyes pasarán unos días en Palma a primeros de agosto

kathia_sophia 07-11-2014 07:17 PM

I'm happy to hear about it. I thought as a new King and Queen they wouldn't be able to go since their agenda is a full pack now.

So hopefull we'll get a photoshoot on that very few days of holiday.

dazzling 07-12-2014 02:38 AM

It's great that they can go on holiday for a few days. I wonder if in the coming years they will start going on summer vacations elsewhere and break from the usual Mallorca.

I also wonder who from the family will be joining them or if they will travel to Mallorca later in the month.

It can't be much of a vacation if the entire family extended family shows up, especially with their white elephant over in Geneva.

Majorca has been, for a long time, more working agenda than vacation for them. The press has been very insistent that Cabo de Gata in Almeria could be the destination for their "real holidays". This is the place where CP Victoria, Daniel and little Estelle went for a few days in Easter last year.

It was a nice villa when it was build, all alone on a top in a remote area. In the meantime it has been totally surrounded by urbanization, leaving little privacy to the members of the royal family. No wonder it is rarely used.

The Kings split August between Mallorca and Madrid
The Kings have finally decided to settle in the Marivent Palace for just over a week from day 4 or 5 August, in any case, to no more than 15 days. Still a lack of specificity, it is understood that the total length of stay will be closer to 10 days.
The second half of the month king Felipe, queen Letizia and their daughters spend at the Zarzuela Palace. According to sources in the Royal House, the Monarch works in his office. The same sources said that Infanta Cristina will not come to Mallorca this summer.

Thanks for sharing the photos so far. :flowers: It's always good to see Queen Sofia with her grandchildren. I agree Carminha Stalker, little Irene is so adorable. I'll be looking forward to the time when Felipe, Letizia, Leonor and Sofia join their cousins and grandmother on holiday. Since it's been mentioned that Felipe will just use Marivent for meetings, I hope they can still get to do their little photoshoot and not have to work all the time.

As stated, when the villa was built, it was all alone and surrounded with empty space. The view was on a romantic city with a pittoresque port. In the meantime urbanization and industrialization has swallowed all the open space around the villa. On this picture one can see the silos with concrete again eating pieces of nature, now "next door" aside the villa.

King Felipe, who will spend his first vacation in Mallorca as king, has landed at the airbase of Son Sant Joan to go directly Marivent Palace personally driving his car. Queen Letizia, princess Leonor and infanta Sofia are expected to arrive to the island in the next few hours.

The extra photos of Queen Sofia and her grandchildren are adorable, you can clearly see that she has a special bond with them, although with little Irene in particular I think.

Thanks lula for the information about the King and Queen's little photoshoot with Leonor and Sofia. :flowers: I'm glad that they still get to do it during these busy months. I must admit that I'm a little disappointed that it won't be outside, but it will be interesting to see them inside Marivent. IIRC, the photoshoot for Princess Letizia's fortieth birthday took place inside as well, but at Zarzuela instead.

I love this video! :flowers: The King looks so relaxed. Love his interactions with his wife and children. Especially loved hearing Letizia's mellow, dulcet voice - not for nothing was she a newscaster. Excellent quality voice.

BTW I do like that Letizia dresses the two girls in identical dresses but different colors. I imagine they work hard to create a sense of equality and balance between the two siblings, so as to avoid rivalry, perhaps. I could see these ensembles being viewed by the girls as their 'uniforms' for public events. Total speculation on my part as to why Letizia does this, but my view is she's nipping some to-be-expected interactions in the bud with such a manner of dressing.

Anyway, I like the dresses. :flowers: Also, love Letizia's pants! Love, love them!

They are very good with the media, that everyone of them went and greeted and talked with the photographers was a wise choice.

Hello

King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain on Majorca holiday - hellomagazine.com

The new photos of Felipe, Letizia, Leonor and Sofia are great! The girls are adorable and I think Leonor is starting to look a lot like Letizia now. I think Sofia looks more like the Borbons since I see a lot of Queen Sofia, Juan Carlos and Elena in her. I find it interesting how the greeted the press afterwards, since I don't remember them doing that in previous photoshoots - perhaps it's something they have to do now that Felipe is King.

I particularly love these photos of Leonor and Felipe, Sofia and Felipe with Leonor and Letizia looking on and Leonor and Sofia together.

Thank you for that - I looked again and I think you are right. Leonor is already striking. Will be interesting to watch her grow into a young lady. :flowers:

I, too, wonder about them greeting the press. Is that a function of being the monarchial family? It certainly is good PR but I won't be cynical. Maybe they were just feeling expansive and in fine holiday spirits. :flowers:

The Palace must be very close to Palma Cathedral.

I´m liking a lot the new King and Queen´s style. Changing the tradictional formal dinner with about 40 guests from the high authorities from the Balearic Islands for a more informal reception to 200 people from different circles: politicians, sportmen, artists, activists, students, etc, seems like a very effective gesture. Greeting the people outside the palace before the reception starts is even a greater one. They do this quite often now, it may attract more people to wait for them at the events, which would be fantastic as well.

And they´re greeting the guest at the palace´s courtyard, lovely. It is goegeous and looks more summery and islander.
