When I visited the Naval Museum in Madrid last month I saw a portrait of Princess Victoria (Ena), granddaughter of Queen Victoria. She married Alfonso XIII of Spain in 1906 and is King Felipe's great-grandmother. It will be a family reunion at Windsor next year.
So as to ensure a happy stay I hear that The Queen has said she will not visit Gibraltar next year. Our Queen has less freedom than her subjects.
