(AP) PALMA DE MALLORCA, Spain (AP) – U.S. first lady Michelle Obama and daughter Sasha had lunch with Spain’s king and queen on Sunday at the royal family’s holiday retreat on the resort island of Mallorca in the Mediterranean.
Mrs. Obama and her daughter arrived at Marivent palace shortly before 1 p.m. and were greeted at the front door of the residence by King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia and Princess Letizia.
The king, a keen yachtsman, has for decades spent August vacations at the palace with its dramatic cliff-top views of the sea on the Balearic island’s southwestern coast near Palma de Mallorca.
Lunch was Andalusian-style chilled gazpacho soup, chargrilled turbot, veal escalopes with mustard, Oriental rice with sauteed mushrooms, a Mallorca-style vegetable ratatouille and sliced fruit with ice cream, accompanied by wines from the northern regions of Rueda and Rioja, the palace said.
