Palma / On Sunday, the King, the Queen and their daughters, the Princess Leonor and the Infanta Sofía, kept with the tradition of posing before the photographers at the beginning of their summer stay in Palma, although this time they didn’t do it at Marivent Palace, but at Almudaina Palace, one of the most emblematic buildings in the city.
It was the first appearance together of the four during their holidays on the island, in which they have been observed smiling, especially the girls, who have been in a summer camp in the United States during the month of July.
“It’s been a lot of fun, we’ve done a lot of sport and we’ve met children from other countries,” Princess of Asturias has commented, with a certain timidity, about her experience in United States, who has become the center of attention in the informal conversation with journalists.
After four years in which Mr. Felipe and Mrs. Letizia had starred in the posed before the facade or in the gardens of Marivent, this time they opted for the Almudaina Palace, the royal residence of Christian monarchs since the 14th century, where the Princess of Asturias and her sister had not been until now.
With the Alcazar of Palma as a stage, Mr. Felipe and Mrs. Letizia want to take “one more step in the public-institutional presence of the future Queen”, sources from the Casa del Rey have explained.
Before the few occasions in which the Princess and the Infanta are shown in public – the last time was on May 19, with his mother and Queen Sofia, have returned to focus on the opportunity to hear them.
The heiress to the throne has said they practiced English in USA – “they already know him very well”, the King has indicated – and did sports activities, such as tennis and gymnastics.
They also practice sailing, a discipline of which his father is a great fan, but his daughters haven’t been seen in Mallorca.
After remembering that Mrs. Leonor will make her first official trip to Asturias on September 8 to visit Covadonga, the King has revealed that they will have to wait for seeing her presence at the Princess of Asturias Awards in Oviedo. (July 30, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
