The Spanish Royal Family was at Palma de Mallorca in the beginning of August where the Copa del Rey Audi Mapfre regatta takes place. This is one of the most prestigious sailing regattas around. The Spanish royals are sailing enthusiasts, especially Infanta Cristina, the second daughter of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, and Cristina’s only brother, Felipe, Prince of the Asturias. King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia along with family members traditionally spend summer holidays at the Marivent Palace on Palma de Mallorca.
