    Queen Sofia of Spain snubs Queen Elizabeth II in diplomatic spat over Gibraltar

    Queen Sofia of Spain reportedly will not attend a lunch at Windsor Castle on Friday.

    LONDON -- Queen Sofia of Spain has reportedly decided not to attend a lunch celebrating Britain's Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee on Friday because of a diplomatic spat over Gibraltar.

    Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy earlier this year raised Madrid's long-standing demand for the return of Gibraltar -- a British territory on the Mediterranean Sea -- during talks with U.K. counterpart David Cameron.

    According to El Pais newspaper, Queen Sofia's snub was in response to a scheduled trip to Gibraltar by Prince Edward.

    Celebrations marking Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the throne will culminate with a four-day long weekend from June 2 - 5.

    This seems very petty. UnQueenlike behavior.

    Gibraltar is a big deal but it could also be because the King and Queen of Spain are reported to have a troubled marriage.

    That's more like it. King Juan Carlos will shag anything with a pulse including, allegedly, Saint Diana.

    Yes, but I seriously doubt he had a fling with Queen Elizabeth!

    Yeah buts it's the Eddie-wandering-dick-Cibrian syndrome, you can't leave them alone & expect it to be unshagged when you get back.
