State Visit to the UK by Spain’s King and Queen Postponed Until July Due to General Election
The state visit to the UK by the King and Queen of Spain has been postponed because of the General Election that has been called for Thursday 8 June. The visit will now take place from 12 to 14 July.
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia were to visit London and stay at Buckingham Palace with Queen Elizabeth II from 6 to 8 June.
It’s the second postponement of the State visit, after the Spanish monarch had to scrap his trip last year because of the uncertainty of the Spanish political situation after the December 2015 general election result proved to be inconclusive.
