The smiling brood were in the pretty port town of Palma de Mallorca, thought to be getting ready for one of their favourite family activities – sailing. The group of cousins were dressed for nautical fun in an array of stripy clothing.
The King and Queen both competed in Olympic sailing and their love for the sport has filtered down through the generations. Sofia represented Greece in the 1960 Olympics in Rome. Her husband represented Spain in the 1972 Munich Summer Olympics.
Prince Felipe and his sister Infanta Cristina both followed in their parents' footsteps and competed 1992 Barcelona Olympics and 1988 Seoul Olympics respectively.
