The British Ambassador to Spain, Simon Manley, has welcomed the announcement of the first State Visit by their majesties King Felipe and Queen Letizia to the UK from the 6th to the 8th of June, during Her Majesty’s Sapphire Jubilee year celebrations.
This is the first State Visit by King Felipe and Queen Letizia to the UK and they will stay at Buckingham Palace. The programme will be announced in due course.
Mr Manley said, “I am delighted that that Their Majesties King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain have accepted her Majesty the Queen’s invitation to visit the UK. This State Visit will celebrate not only the long and deep royal and historic ties between our two countries, but also our strong relationship as partners bilaterally, within Europe and on the global stage.”
