Emeritus King Juan Carlos I

EMERITUS King Juan Carlos reportedly has no plans to travel to Mallorca this summer.

When he ceased to be Head of State, King Juan Carlos I abandoned the custom of 40 years of spending the summer relaxing at Marivent Palace in Mallorca and instead has other plans, away from his family. 

He has travelled to La Palma in the Canary Islands and this week was due to head to San Sebastian, in the Basque Country, to support the return of bullfights to the city.

Meanwhile, Queen Sofia continues to enjoy Mallorca as her summer holiday destination and is normally the first to arrive on the island and the last to leave.
