Their Royal Highnesses the Earl and Countess of Wessex have arrived in Gibraltar on June 11, 2012, for a three-day visit as part of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Despite the controversy of their visit the earl and countess looked happy and relaxed upon their arrival at the airport where they were greeted by the Prime Minister of Gibraltar, Mr. Fabian Picardo and the Governor Sir Adrian Johns.

Any way, on today’s agenda for the royal couple include a Diamond Jubilee song and dance road show (what ever that is), participate in an Oak tree planting ceremony at the Governor’s residence, then they will “…lay the foundation stone for the Diamond Jubilee Monument at the Jubilee Commonwealth Park…” In the evening, the Earl and Countess of Wessex will attend a reception and a gala dinner at the Rock Hotel.
