The royal family vacation in Palma de Mallorca are about to come to an end. A vacation that this year is planned to be shorter than usual given that on Sunday King Felipe travels to Colombia to attend the events on the occasion of the presidential changeover in the country. An important event on the agenda of the monarch who, since his time as Prince of Asturias, has assumed this type of commitment to represent Spain in Latin American countries.
It has not yet been confirmed if after this trip the King planned to return to Marivent and if the Queen and her daughters will remain there in the meantime. However, everything suggests that this will not be the case. And it is that this year, the Royal Family has less than three weeks to be together and in private, on their first vacation out of the public eye since the outbreak of the pandemic.
As usual, details of what these private vacation days will be like are not known, but we do know when they will end. If last year the Princess Leonor joined class on August 30, on this occasion the heiress will have to return to Wales several days before.
As confirmed by the center in which the eldest daughter of the Kings studies international BaccalaureateAt Atlantic College in Wales, second-year students start classes on Friday, August 26, four days earlier than first-year students who, like last year, have entry on the 30th. This means that the private holidays of the Reyes and his daughters have to finish before August 26, since Leonor has to be in Wales that day. Something that also applies to the case of Princess Alexia of the Netherlands, who shares a course with Leonor. However, it is known that on some specific occasion, Alexia has delayed her entry to school due to official commitments, a situation that has not occurred in the case of the Princess Eleanor.
Last year, the House of HM the King made public a series of images of the Princess on her departure from Madrid and on her arrival in Wales. These have been the only photographs that have been seen of Leonor in this new stage although, given that the circumstances are different this year and there are no restrictions, it would be possible that the King and Queen and the Infanta Sofía accompanied Leonor to Wales, just like A few months ago there was news of a punctual visit for the King’s birthday.
This year is especially important for the Princess of Asturias since he finishes his high school studies and the doubt arises about what his next steps will be. On the one hand, one of the issues on the table is the moment in which will swear to the Constitution -already in the fall of 2023, when he comes of age-, but doubts are also raised about his university career or his military training. However, now is only the time to enjoy a well-deserved private vacation as a family, like those of yesteryear. Time will decide on the future.
