  • King Felipe and Queen Letizia and their two daughters are making more appearances than usual during their stay in Mallorca

King Felipe and Queen Letizia began their traditional short holiday in Mallorca last weekend, accompanied by Princess Leonor and the Infanta Sofia.

This year however, as well as days relaxing at Palacio Marivent, their official island residence, they are paying more visits than usual to different parts of the Balearics to highlight charity work on the islands and the importance of tourism for the local economy.

The King has also met with the Prime Minister and leading local politicians during their stay.
