Right Royal Visit

Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince and Princess of Asturias, Felipe and Letizia,

Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince and Princess of Asturias, Felipe and Letizia, paid their first ever official visit to Ibiza last week when they were greeted by ecstatic crowds in the town's main square, the Vara de Rey.

Naturally all our local politicians had turned out in force, but perhaps the most interesting for the Princess, whose pregnancy had just been made public, was Pilar Costa, Ex-President of the Island Council who is herself expecting a baby any day now.

While hubby Felipe was engaged on official duties poor Letizia, who had earlier wowed the crowds in a grey trouser suit with contrasting orange ostrich skin handbag, had to rest in their hotel because of her condition.

The royal pair are reported to have enjoyed their visit to the island, and Felipe appreciated the lunch given at the Hotel Los Molinos so much that he asked for a round of applause for the chefs! Before they left they were presented with various gifts from the island, among which was a six week old Podenco (a native hunting dog) puppy named Valent.

Come back soon Royal visitors, Ibiza loves you.
