Queen Sofia has arrived in Palma de Mallorca for her summer vacation, as is tradition.
Observers and locals were wondering whether Her Majesty would return to Marivent Palace amid scandal surrounding her husband, King Juan Carlos.
Media outlets are reporting that Queen Sofia is in the Balearic Islands. King Felipe, Queen Letizia and their daughters are likely to join in the coming weeks.
Some polls show Queen Sofia as the most popular royal, largely because she has remained committeed to her role despite difficult years.
King Juan Carlos is said to be with friends in Galicia. He may have to move out of Zarzuela Palace permanently.
