Spain's King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia postpone UK visit

ICONINSIDER — Spain’s King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia have postponed their visit to the UK to meet Queen Elizabeth “in light of the General Election”.
The royal family has issued a statement confirming that their meeting will now take place between July 12 and 14 instead of June 6 to June 8, after British Prime Minister Theresa May announced there will be a poll on June 9.
The notice on the official royal website,, reads: “Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Majesty King Felipe VI of Spain have agreed that, in light of the General Election, the planned State Visit to the United Kingdom from 6th to 8th June 2017 by King Felipe and Queen Letizia should be postponed. The Visit will now take place on 12th to 14th July 2017.”
The pair last came to the UK in July last year, when they attended Rod Stewart’s concert in Madrid.
The royal couple – who got married in 2004 – snuck into the show at the Teatro Real, a major opera house, through a side door and sung the night away with other attendees.
Letizia, who was dressed to impress in a skimpy black dress, couldn’t resist documenting the event on her phone as she pulled out her device and began snapping away.
However, the couple may have been enjoying themselves but, according to HELLO! magazine, they refused to get up and dance and, instead, sang along to the lyrics.
It was a busy few months for the pair as earlier in 2016 they spent three days in the UK.
