King, Queen and daughters seen strolling through Palma streets 'like any other family on holiday'
Thursday, August 11, 2022 @ 2:47 PM

PEDESTRIANS out and about in Palma de Mallorca's historic quarter are still pinching themselves after seeing the Royal family out for a stroll in their midst.

No sunglasses, hats or other disguises, no entourage or bodyguards – just a couple of teenage girls in cotton frocks and espadrilles, and their parents in shirts and shorts, pottering along the C/ Jaume II and the Plaza Mayor in a relaxed, unhurried manner.

In fact, judging from footage captured by passers-by, any holidaymakers who are not familiar with Spain's Royals would not have been able to tell King Felipe VI, Queen Letizia, and their two daughters from any other family in town.

The monarchs, Princess Leonor, 16 and the Infanta Sofía, 15 were then seen ambling along the C/ Sindicat, a key shopping street in the Balearic capital.

Only eagle-eyed fashion experts would have been able to spot any difference between the average family of tourists and the Royals – the fact Queen Letizia's white shirt and flat white espadrilles were Hugo Boss.

But HRH Letizia does not wear top-end designer clothing simply because she is married to the head of State and mother to the immediate heir to the throne – the Queen makes no secret of her appreciation for high-street chains, often being seen even at prestigious, international and official events in the line of duty wearing pieces from Zara and Mango.

She was seen in a pink cotton print Zara mini-dress on Sunday during a three-generations girls' night out in Palma with Leonor and Sofía and the teens' paternal grandmother, Queen Sofía.
