Bicentennial post, achieved without steroids

After mature consideration, I decided how better to celebrate this 200th post aquí en España than with this (unfortunately rather small) reproduction of the photo about which everyone is talking this week, that of the future queen, Doña Letizia taken in her beach wear, as the royal family spend some time in their residencia estival (el palacio de Marivent de Palma de Mallorca).
Note that a subscription to la Semana, which - unfortunately - I do not possess (even I have to set limits somewhere) would allow you to weigh in on such important questions on whether or not you believe that Javier Bardem and Scarlett Johansson engaged in some offscreen canoodling, as well as whether the Infanta (and future queen) Leonór resembles her grandma, Queen Sofía.
Anyone with strong views on either of these two burning questions is invited to leave a comment on this blog.
The plain people of Ireland: Funny that "estival" means the same thing in English as it does in Spanish.
The management: Your erudition astonishes me, frankly.
