A some people wonder if the Royals work? The schedule must be exhausting.

This is some schedule, and it's only a three-day-long trip. I agree; these people work, and work pretty darn hard.

A busy schedule for the Wessexes in Gibraltar over the next few days. I'm so glad that the Gibraltarians, who are among the Queen's most loyal subjects, are getting a royal visit this year. Let's hope the Queen herself can make a visit there next year to celebrate 300 years of British sovereignty on the Rock.

All this negative press over their visit, if i were them, would make me unsure as to whether i wanted to go!

I understand Spain's issue, but it is not something that is going to be changed by negativity toward Britain, particularly their royal family. I have no doubt that Spain will one day own Gibraltar, but for now can't they just let the Queen celebrate 60 good years.

Let's hope that with all this press there will be many photo opportunities for Edward and Sophie.

If I were a royal, Gibraltar would be right at the top of the list of places I would want to visit. The Gibraltarians always give the royals a hugely warm welcome, and are genuinely thrilled to receive any member of the family.

To put it bluntly, Edward and Sophie don't generally generate big crowds on their visits; this will be an exception. I'm sure they'll enjoy it.

Prince Edward and wife Sophie look relaxed as they touch down in front of Rock of Gibraltar for controversial visit
Quote:
Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex looked relaxed as they stepped off a British Airways plane in front of the Rock of Gibraltar today. Their trip has already been roundly attacked by the Spanish government, which is said to be 'displeased' at their patronage of the former colony. But the Queen's youngest son and wife Sophie Rhys-Jones seemed to be enjoying the regal affair as they arrived in sunny Gibraltar to join in the Diamond Jubilee celebrations for Her Majesty.
