Stand by, there's State Visit news. The Express is reporting that work is going on to schedule in the postponed State Visit of King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain to the UK and we could be getting their carriages and tiara moment very soon. The Express says that Felipe and Letizia could be heading this way in June, before the proposed State Visit by US President, Donald Trump which looks likely, now, to happen in October. Europress and La Vanguardia in Spain are also reporting ongoing talks to reschedule the Spanish State Visit soon - it was postponed last year because of the political situation in Spain following inconclusive general elections at the end of 2015. If King Felipe and Queen Letizia do visit this year, it will be the fourteenth time that the Queen has hosted a fellow European monarch in her record breaking reign. As rumours grow, here's a look back at the other times that the Queen has hosted queens and kings.
