Does someone know BBC will broadcast any event of the state visit?.
UK coverage - some of what I wrote in another post here:


Getty Images will of course publish many videos and pictures, ITN SOURCE will also publish some videos, Daily Fail vill publish articles with many pictures and we may see some clips on BBC One/ITV television news.

But the big question (to me) is whether BBC News Channel (Launched 1997) and Sky News (Launched 1989) will have live coverage.

Coverage by BBC News Channel and Sky News on previous state visits:

State Visit from Japan in May 1998: Live coverage from the carriage procession, the state banquet and other events.

State visit from China in October 1999: Live coverage from the carriage procession, the state banquet and other events.

State visit from the United States in November 2003: Live coverage from the arrival at Buckingham Palace, the state banquet and other events.

State visit from China in November 2005: Live coverage from the carriage procession, the state banquet and other events.

State visit from the United States in May 2011: Live coverage from the arrival at Buckingham Palace, the state banquet and other events.

State Visit from Ireland in April 2014: Live coverage from the carriage procession, the state banquet and other events.

State visit from China in October 2015: Live coverage from the carriage procession, the state banquet and other events.

There was also live coverage on the Internet for the American, Irish and Chinese state visits in 2011, 2014 and 2015.

Other state visits: Nothing, and I think (unfortunately) that BBC/Sky will not see Spain as important enough to have live coverage.

And that has nothing to do with the palace allowing it or not - When the Norwegian royal family visited the UK in 2005, Norwegian television sent live from the events, and the coverage was generaly very large. In the UK? Nothing at all.

The Livestreams are a pleasant surprise, hopefully the coverage will be good, especially for the State Dinner!

Thanks to wartenberg7 and lula!

Seeing these Livestreams made a (so far) busy and tiring day much better.

I don't see the point of covering their arrival as they are arriving privately today and heading to a hotel. The state visit won't begin officially until tomorrow.

Nevertheless, the Spanish royal couple will be greeted at the airport by the Viscount Brookeborough, Lord- in-Waiting, on behalf of the Queen.

The Twitter account from Casa Real usually covers the visits in real time so we can expect some pictures from the arrival. And a Madrid-London flight shouldn't take longer than two hours

Reading their itinerary, it is packed for each of the three days they are in London. Sounds exhausting, but I guess that comes with being a King and Queen. Looks like they will be mostly eating on Wednesday. HA!! I mean, lunch, tea, reception and then a banquet. Letizia will need to pace herself. (Just kidding. I'm sure Letizia will have no problem pushing food around her plate so as not to insult the chef.)

Anyway, I'm looking forward to what the ladies will wear for each event, especially the State Banquet. TIARIAS!!!

I think they like to keep that quiet until they are on the way out of it.

Please note that a number of posts discussing Royal Orders have been moved to the The Royal Family Order (RFO) and other Royal Orders and Decorations thread.

Article from the BBC and it's featured on their main UK site. Seems to me that the UK media (so far) is quite interested in this visit, and I find that very surprising:
Spain's King Felipe and Queen Leitizia begin UK state visit - BBC News
Quote:
The Queen is to formally welcome the king and queen of Spain to the UK as they begin a two-day state visit.

King Felipe and Queen Leitizia will be greeted by the Queen and Prince Philip at Horse Guards Parade on Wednesday.

The trip is the first state visit by a Spanish king to the UK since Felipe's father, Juan Carlos, came 31 years ago.

BBC royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said UK leaders hope the trip will foster understanding between the two countries over Brexit.

It is expected to be the Duke of Edinburgh's last state visit before he retires from public duties after the summer.

The visit is beginning one day later than usual for such trips, meaning Theresa May will miss Prime Minister's Questions in the Commons to attend the Horse Guards welcome.
