Tomorrow, the people of Gibraltar will get a unique opportunity to express their unwavering loyalty to Her Majesty the Queen by welcoming The Earl and Countess of Wessex to the Rock.
During past Royal Visits, going back to that by Her Majesty the Queen, herself, on the occasion of the Royal Tour of the Commonwealth after her Coronation in 1953, Gibraltar has always risen to welcome members of the Royal Family.
The Gibraltarians have been extremely proud to wave their Union Jacks and taken to the streets to “wave and cheer” visiting Royals, not least on their Main Street walk from the Convent to City Hall at 4pm tomorrow.
This time, it will be no different and HMGoG is confident we will once again adorn our homes and properties with the traditional Red, White and Blue in a massive show of loyalty and affection to ensure the Royals feel the special warmth towards their presence here.
Her Majesty the Queen has served on the Throne for a record seventy years, the longest serving Monarch in the world and it is right and fitting that we honour her with all our hearts on this historic and unique occasion.
Her Majesty's Government of Gibraltar conveys its immense satisfaction over the Royal Visit, which will enable the Gibraltarians to celebrate this historic occasion and pay tribute to Her Majesty the Queen.
