Here’s another blast from the past: photos of the Spanish royal family on holiday at Palma de Mallorca. The Spanish royals have enjoyed summer holidays at the Marivent Palace on the island of Mallorca for many years now. Mallorca, one of the Balearic Islands on the Mediterranean, is also a popular tourist resort with many. Here are some photos of King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia, their children, Elena, Cristina, and Felipe and grandchildren, taken in 1976, 1982, 2006 and 2007.
