Felipe VI's and Letizia's Windsor Castle stay may be postponed over Spain's political impasse
By:

KING Felipe VI and Queen Letizia's planned privileged homestay at Windsor Castle with Queen Elizabeth II of England is now up in the air and may have to be postponed, because of the political stalemate in Spain resulting from the December general elections.

Now the country does not have a government, the Monarchs' UK trip due for March 8 to 10 may fall by the wayside, just as their visit to Saudi Arabia has done recently.

It is said to have been the UK itself which may suspend the Royal trip – and rather than postponing it for a few weeks, as is normally the case, it could be held up for four months; an unprecedented situation for both countries.

HRHs Felipe and Letizia are still planning ahead just in case, and have not cancelled any Royal engagements, whilst the UK ambassador in Madrid, Simon Manley, says he has not heard anything official about the British visit being postponed.

In the meantime, various political parties – notably the independent Canary Island outfit Coalición Canaria – are urging the King to reach a 'legal solution' to resolve the impasse in Parliament as soon as possible.
