The people of Gibraltar are revving up for some more right royal celebrations today as the Queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, and his wife arrive for their second visit to the Rock.

The couple are scheduled to land at the airport this afternoon and people will be able to give them a warm welcome as they take a walk down Main Street later.

Visits to some of Gibraltar’s many places of interest have been scheduled for tomorrow.
