"With such a remarkable shared history, it is inevitable that there are matters on which we have not always seen eye to eye".

Dr Hall said he spoke to the king about "the importance of reconciliation both within the church and between our nations". Hugo Boss cat-eye shades and pearl and diamond earrings completed the ensemble with quiet sophistication.

A Number 10 spokeswoman said the issue "didn't come up" and insisted Spain is "well aware" of Britain's position that the overseas territory's future is not up for discussion despite Madrid's claim on the Rock.

Princess Anne showed Queen Letizia of Spain the way.

King Felipe said Brexit "saddens" Spain but that it "fully respects" the will of the British people.

The European Union suggested terms of a the Brexit negotiations would not apply to Gibraltar unless Spain agrees, effectively giving them the chance to negotiate more favorable terms over its control. For the plane ride, Letizia chose a top and skirt combo from Hugo Boss, punctuated with python accessories and delicate drop earrings.

However, the chief minister of Gibraltar, Fabian Picardo, quickly rebuffed the king's comments.

Although Article 50, launching the Brexit procedure, is yet to be triggered, Gibraltar has already embarked on an effort to convince the EU that the territory needs a special arrangement in the EU-UK divorce deal.

The two countries are also trying to resolve the status of thousands of expatriates facing uncertainty over their rights once Britain leaves the EU.

This latest look comes on the heels of a similar styling trick from earlier this month, when Letizia wore Zara's blush pink flounced hem top and trousers. Around 400 Spanish companies are registered in Britain, whilst 700 British companies are investing in Spain.

Letizia met Prince Felipe in 2002 when she was reporting on oil spill off the Spanish coast. A year later, the marriage ended in a divorce.

The first day of the Spaniards' three-day visit began with a meeting with Charles and Camilla at their posh hotel, ME London on The Strand.

Mr Picardo urged him to understand that Gibraltar "will remain 100% British", after the monarch raised the thorny issue as he addressed MPs and peers at the Royal Gallery in the Houses of Parliament during his state visit.
