FORMER US president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle are expected to fly into Mallorca this weekend to attend a party.

The attendees- said to be a mixture of Mallorcans, people from mainland Spain, and non-Spaniards- will be able to enjoy some top Mediterranean quality cuisine along with live entertainment.

Ex-first lady Michelle Obama is no stranger to Mallorca, as she is close friends with the former US ambassador to Spain, James Costos and his husband, the renowned interior designer, Michael Smith, who have a home on the island.

Her first visit was in August 2017 when she stayed at the Ses Planes estate, and she returned the following year.

The estate owned by Marieta Salas, ex-wife of Zourab Tchokotua, Georgian prince and close friend of King Emeritus Juan Carlos I, which she rented to the Costos-Smith couple.

Michelle Obama was spotted on the island last September when she was a guest of Costos and Smith.

She was seen having lunch at a well-known restaurant in Puerto Portals.

There was an extensive deployment of security staff wearing bulletproof vests but their presence was described as ‘discreet’.
