Spanish royal family: vacation instead of crisis mood

The Spanish royal family does not want to forego an old tradition. Felipe and Letizia are on vacation with the children on Mallorca.

Even the unrewarding departure of the former King Juan Carlos I (82) into exile and the raging Corona crisis do not prevent the traditional annual summer vacation of the Spanish royals on Mallorca. King Felipe VI. (52), Queen Letizia (47) and their daughters Leonor (14) and Sofia (13) are close to the people and in a good mood.

Instead of private sunbathing or the like, the royals appear in public – for example during a visit to the Mallorcan Petra, the birthplace of the missionary Junipero Serra (1713-1784). While Letizia showed up in a red summer dress with a waist belt and brown wedges on Monday, her daughters wore less flashy, but just as summery dresses. Nevertheless, the young Sofia of Spain in particular attracted everyone's attention as she appeared with a crutch and a bandaged knee.

Sofia fell

The Spanish newspaper "ABC" reports that Sofia fell on Sunday. Although the wound had to be sewn with a few stitches, Sofia apparently did not need to go to hospital. On Tuesday, a joint visit to a socio-educational project in Son Roca followed, which has supported local children for more than 20 years.
