CHIEF Minister Fabian Picardo has called on the Queen to visit the Rock after a 60 year absence.
Picardo made the plea to Her Majesty while addressing 30,000 people during National Day celebrations.
The Chief Minister enlisted the enthusiastic crowd to support the idea.
“If I can’t hear you, they can’t hear you in Buckingham Palace. Gibraltar, do you want the Queen to come back to the Rock?” he asked, as the crowd cheered and clapped in agreement.
“Now there’s a message and a half,” Picardo added.
Earlier this year, the Olive Press revealed that the idea of a Royal visit had been floated during a high level meeting with representatives from the UK government.
