There’s also a lot more movement than usual at the service entrance to Marivent Palace with people coming and going under the watchful eye of Security Personnel.

Last Thursday, Security Vehicles and a group of escorts which are usually in service when Dona Sofía is in Majorca were seen entering and leaving the premises and it’s thought she may already be on the Island.
