Finally we have a date. Majorca's tennis ace Rafa Nadal and Xisca Perelló will marry on October 19 in Puerto Pollensa. This was revealed by our sister newspaper Ultima Hora. The ceremony will be held at noon on a property near La Fortalesa, the Majorcan estate made famous by the BBC TV series The Night Manager. Real Madrid star Gareth Bale married at La Fortalesa earlier this year. The reception takes place at the famous estate in Pollensa which is owned by a British banker who was a major donor to the Conservative Party.
Rafa Nadal and Xisca Perelló's wedding will take place with a high level of security.
It is expected that this will be one of the biggest social events of this year, with well-known faces from the world of sport - the presence of, among others, tennis players Feliciano López and Fernando Verdasco. King Juan Carlos, with whom Nadal has an excellent relationship and whom we have seen this summer with the tennis player and his fiancée, will also attend.
The Night Manager is a British television serial directed by Susanne Bier, and starring Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman, David Harewood, Tom Hollander and Elizabeth Debicki. It is based on the 1993 novel of the same name by John le Carré and adapted to the present day by David Farr.
The six-part series began broadcasting on BBC One on 21 February 2016. In the United States, it began on 19 April 2016 on AMC. It has been sold internationally to over 180 countries, and a second series has been commissioned by the BBC and AMC.
