Gibraltar outraged as King of Spain refuses to acknowledge the Rock's autonomy

Gibraltar outraged as King of Spain refuses to acknowledge the Rock's autonomy

"However, we have no desire to form part of Spain or to come under Spanish sovereignty in any shape or form".

The comments, made in a speech to Parliament, provoked a furious response from the Rock's chief minister, Fabian Picardo, who claimed the territory was being treated like a "pawn in a chess game".

King Felipe, 49, is thought to raise the issue of Gibraltar during his visit this week and will deliver an address at Westminmster from the Royal Gallery to parliamentarians today before meeting Theresa May for talks at Downing Street tomorrow.

Prince Harry was an excellent and posed host when he escorted the king and queen of Spain to Westminster Abbey. In referenda held in 1967 and 2002, the Gibraltarian public widely rejected proposals for it to be governed by Madrid. Mr. Picardo urged him to understand that Gibraltar "will remain 100% British". "We had a very good conversation and the king was very relaxed".

"In Gibraltar the people have spoken loud and clear".

But Spain wants shared sovereignty and the European Union has promised Spain a veto over the extension to Gibraltar of any future trade deal between Britain and the bloc, prompting outrage in London.

Afterward, Felipe, accompanied by England's queen, and Letizia, accompanied by Philip, enjoyed a state carriage procession to Buckingham Palace.

The monarch and his wife Queen Letizia were entertained at a lavish banquet last night, after he delivered a speech to both Houses of Parliament.
