Was any explanation given by the Foreign Ministry to justify that decision ?

State visits are usually limited to two or three a year, then there may be other types of trips. Cancellations due to own (elections, Catalonia) or other countries (Government problems in South Korea and London, problems of the King of Morocco) problems have been continuous, and this complicates the planning of the agenda, which must also be adjusted to that of the Government.

The Royal House and the Foreign Minister had reserved the first two weeks of March to place the trip to Morocco, which has already been canceled several times, and again there will be no trip.

About the trip to the Winter Olympics, since Spain has little representation in these sports, unless they are held in a nearby place, they do not usually go.

King Juan Carlos now represents the country in the changes of Government in Latin America (role played by Felipe when he was a prince), and that is the reason for his trip to Chile.

The article does not mention a reason for it, other than the already known reasons for cancelling the visits to Morocco and Cuba.

I suppose that the Catalan issue may be problematic for state visits within Europe. The Spanish will not like to discuss such domestic issues abroad, while the governments of the other country may be forced -by their own political parties- to mention the matter at the state banquet. Perhaps not surprising that they may prefer to evade such a situation for the time being.

Will the Kings of Spain still go on a state visit this year? It's strange not to mention anything so far.

The Kings of Spain are due to go to Washington in June.

Maybe the wrong threat but im suprised they will fly to USA at this dates, i expected them at the Order of the Garter :sad:

An Ard Ri 05-21-2018 04:17 PM

Its not a State Visit to the USA.

Mary-Rose 06-22-2018 10:12 AM

I wonder King Felipe and Queen Letizia will make a state visit abroad this year? I can remember there were rumours about a state visit to Denmark but it hink this could happen next year, on the other hand I´ve read they will make a state visit to Argentinia in march 2019. The same question for incoming state visits, I´ve read Macron will visit spain this autumn, and for october/november a state visit from China is planned, and Pedro Sanchez would like to work close with Germany too. (the last German state visit to spain was 2002, last spanish state visit to Germany 1999). I dont think a state visit to Morocco will happen that soon, its a big mess!!

An Ard Ri 06-22-2018 12:21 PM

Though it wasn't a State Visit the Official Trip to the USA was the nearest we've gotten on an outbound visit this year.

Duke of Marmalade 06-22-2018 01:58 PM

Not sure and maybe somebody knows and can clarify, the recent US trip wasn't even labelled 'Official Visit' but only 'Visit to Lousiana, Texas and Washington', I don't know where the difference is between Visit and Offical Visit?

Im not sure if its right but i think during an official/State visit they usuallly welcomed with military honours and Felipe and Letizia visited not USA but two states of the USA.. i would call it working visit:ermm:

Yes a State Visit has def military honours.
I was confused because their visit in 2015 was labelled official, maybe they toured some institutions like the Senate back then.
This time, they only visited the White House and went home.
So yes, I'd call it a Working Visit too.

President Putin invited King Felipe for an official visit to Russia whenever he wishes. They could make a state visit IMO

Putin llama a rey español, tras triunfo de Rusia en Mundial

Felipe VI felicitó al equipo ruso por su paso a Cuartos de Final – Correo del Orinoco

Why would they attend the meeting of the Order of the Garter? Foreign royals never do with the exception of very special occassions when all foreign knights and ladies are invited (it happened once when Elizabeth celebrated 50 years on the throne if I am not mistaken).

It's strange that the Kings of Spain have not yet made a state visit this year. Will they soon make a state visit to some monarchy in Europe? Was it said that they could go to Denmark, some new information about this visit?

Duke of Marmalade 07-03-2018 09:53 AM

Morocco seems to be difficult and there has been an exchange of PM, from Rajoy to Sanchez, not sure how much impact this change has on the political agenda regarding countries to be visited.
There is a new president in Mexico now, quite certainly he'll come over or invite the Kings to Mexico soon.
