Princess in court buit did the people of Palma really care?

08-02-2014PAUL HANNA

IF you hadn´t  been forewarned I don´t think you would have known that history was being made in Palma yesterday. It is the first time ever in Spanish history that a senior member of the royal family has appeared in court but Palma yesterday just shrugged its shoulders and went back to bed. A Danish journalist was telling me that this was a major story in Denmark and a U.S. journalist said that there was interest across the Atlantic but not so much in Palma. Of course, there were the demontrators who were protesting about everything from the royal family to the closure of the Coca Cola bottling plant in Palma and there was the police and a few onlookers who had been caught by this so-called world event. But really this didn´t feel like history in the making.
