If true it would be a pity! First the visit to france (for obvious and severe reasons) and now this.

No surprises though. The process if governed Foston is underway and till the matter is resolved, it is probably best any such visits are not scheduled

Not good news if this cancellation is true - there was the specific timing for this visit withe the 400th anniversary celebrations and if cancelled now i wondered if it will even be reworked for a new date?

Most likely a new date will be worked out. Don't worry, this State Visit will happen this year.

I think a new date will only be discussed when the new government is set, could be in March or in case of new elections in June or worst case even later.
With the 90th birthday celebrations etc I think the visit will only take place in the second half of the year, if at all. Maybe only in 2017.

It's a shame that the visit has had to be cancelled as I think we were all looking foreword to this one - it's been too long since the last State Visit between the countries. Nonetheless, it is understandable and we can only hope that the issues causing the cancellation can be resolved.

It's difficult to tell when the new date will be - if they can fit it in somewhere this year I think they will try. Otherwise we are looking at the beginning of next year.

Spanish government cancels State Visit to UK – Royal Central
Quote:
Buckingham Palace confirmed that The Queen has been informed, saying: “The Queen, of course, fully understands the decision and the context in which it was taken.” It added that it was too early to confirm what the future plans for the visit would be, given Her Majesty’s pre-planned engagements in a landmark year.

I think we jewel watchers must pit on record our beef with the voters of Spain. After all, if only they had been united enough to vote on a majority government, we would not be denied the chance to see a royal on royal state visit

Well that's a real pity but I think must of us knew it was unlikely to go ahead given the political situation in Spain.Hopefully things will improve in Spain and we the State Visit will take place in the latter half of this year.

When it does happen, as Charles & Juan Carlos are (were?) close friends and he and Felipe VI are closely related through multiple lines Battenberg-Hesse/Queen Victoria, Christian IX of Denmark, George I of Greece, maybe this will be less difficult for him than with Willem-Alexander or Philippe. Then again, maybe that makes it worse....

I think it was clear when Sanchez said earlier this week that he'd needed up to a month to negotiate, that's beginning of March. No way they would do a State Visit with a vote possibly not going through etc.

I admit though, I know a great deal of us were really looking forward to this State Visit. There hasn't been a royal State Visit to the UK in a long time, so the postponement is understandable, but is disappointing. Hopefully, everything will be worked out quickly and the State Visit will be rescheduled for the summer.
