Royal drone 2MYSTERY drones are keeping Spain’s royals awake at night.

Guards at the royal residence in Madrid have been left with no option but to shoot down the drones, as radio ‘jamming’ isn’t working.

It is not known who is behind the invasive devices outside King Felipe’s La Zarzuela palace although both journalists and terrorists have been linked.

A royal spokesman has played down the drones, saying that it is likely to be the work of ‘pranksters or activists’.

He added that as a result of the increasing number of drones in Spain’s skies, the government has been advised to look into ‘tightening its anti-drone measures around high-security areas’.
