Michelle Obama went out for lunch in Mallorca on Thursday, as she continued enjoying her vacation on the Spanish island.
The former first lady, 54, was seen heading out of a restaurant after eating with former Ambassador James Costos, 55, and his partner Michael Smith, 54.
Michelle, who is currently in Mallorca as the couple’s guest, received the same invitation last year and on that occasion too spent a few days in Balearic Islands.

Michelle hunched her shoulders while making her way out, surrounded by a large team of aides and security personnel.
Her entourage escorted her out as she boarded her car, several of them wearing fanny packs that are actually used as gun holsters.
Michelle wore a sleeveless dress with thin horizontal stripes during the outing.
She kept her hair down and completed her outfit with a pair of hoop earrings as well as a straw bag, which she carried on her left arm.
The first lady kept her phone in her left hand as she made her way towards her car.
Costos and Smith were seen leaving the restaurant as well, both wearing polo shirts and shorts.

The day before her lunch outing, Michelle was spotted breaking a sweat while out on a hike in the Mallorcan mountains.
She kept a low profile during that outing too, donning a pair of sunglasses.
Michelle also wore a baseball hat and a sleeveless sweater with a hood, which she pulled over her head for additional discretion.
The former first lady paired her loose gray top with black leggings and sneakers.
She made sure to stay hydrated as temperatures in Mallorca reached the eighties, carrying a bottle of water in her left hand.
Just like during her lunch outing, Michelle was accompanied by a large entourage for the hike, with as many as nine people surrounding her at one point.
Several of them appeared to be members of her security team, and one is believed to be an aide who tagged along during Michelle’s trip to Mallorca last year.

Both Michelle and her husband will have a Secret Service detail for the rest of their lives, Barack having restored lifetime protection for former presidents in 2013.
Costos and Smith are longtime friends of the Obamas, and have previously hosted the family several times at their residence in Palm Springs, California.
Barack and Michelle jetted off to the glamorous home after Donald Trump’s inauguration in January of 2017.
Smith, a designer, previously redecorated the Oval Office and the Obamas’ private quarters during their time at the White House.
Later on, he was moved to welcome the first family into his house.
‘When they were here, it occurred to me that more than 50 years ago JFK had stayed just down the road at Bing Crosby’s home,’ Smith told Architectural Digest in 2015.
‘The President and Mrs. Obama basically woke up in the morning to the same view of the valley. There was something lovely about that thought.
‘It made me contemplate all the change that has taken place in those decades, contrasting with the timelessness of this beautiful desert landscape.’
