King Philippe cancels his hello to Spain
King Philippe of the Belgians and his consort, Mathilde, have cancelled their welcome visit to Spain following the death of the former Spanish Prime Minister, Adolfo Suarez. The king and queen were due in Madrid on March 25th on a one day visit to introduce themselves as monarchs. But following the death of Adolfo Suarez, King Juan Carlos and his family have cancelled all engagements for at least three days and would not have been able to hold the lunch planned for their visitors. It's believed the tour will be re-arranged for a later date.
