The traditional August stay of the King and Queen and their family at Marivent Palace in Mallorca has so far been the usual mix of business, pleasure and photo opportunities.

Last weekend, King Felipe, a keen sailor, was skippering in the prestigious Copa del Rey regatta.

On Wednesday, he held a meeting at the palace with acting PM, Pedro Sánchez, and in the evening, with the Queen, gave a reception in Palma, shaking hands with over 600 guests in the welcome line.
