Spain’s King Felipe and Queen Letizia accept Queen’s invite to visit the UK

royal visitWHILE Queen Elizabeth politely declined an invitation to holiday in Gibraltar, she penned her own to King Felipe and Queen Letizia.

The Spanish monarchs will make a state visit to the UK, staying in Windsor Castle, on March 8-10 next year.

“The State visit will celebrate not only the long and deep historic ties between our countries but also our strong relationship as partners in the EU, NATO and UN,” said Ambassador Simon Manley.

The trip is long overdue, since the last royal state visit to the UK was in 1986, and Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh’s last trip to Spain was just two years later.

It is set to be a memorable event, with pomp and grandeur.
