King Felipe VI of Spain with his family
Mallorca, August 3rd 2015
The famous palace steps have been the setting for many famous royal summer photo calls but this one, like 2014, was much smaller than previous years as the Spanish Royals shrink down to a core element of the king, his consort, his heir and the spare. While his father and mother are still part of the official family, they weren't present at the press call although Queen Sofia has been seen on the island in the past days with her eldest daughter, Elena, and her other grandchildren. This evening was all about Felipe and his family.
The Spanish Royal Family
Marivent Palace, August 3rd 2015
The session began with a meet and greet with the journalists who had gathered to take photos and ask questions. And just like last year, Princess Leonor and her sister, the Infanta Sofia, joined their parents in shaking hands with those who had come to see them.
