Gibraltar's National Day Cancelled – Elizabeth's letter to Gibraltar

September 10 – Gibraltar's National Day is celebrated annually, as the official national day of the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. The day commemorates Gibraltar's first sovereignty referendum of 1967, in which Gibraltarian voted to remain under British sovereignty, with institutions of self-government.

NATIONAL Day celebrations will be postponed for another year after the death of Queen Elizabeth II this week, Chief Minister of Gibraltar Fabian Picardo announced live on TV.

Instead, the screens on-stage at Casemates Square will stream the September 10 First Proclamation of King Charles III in front of the Ascension Council.

The Casemates stage will remain for the 73-year-old’s televised public proclamation as Queen Elizabeth’s son in Sandwell on September 11.

Picardo said Friday was ‘the eve of our saddest National Day’ in his televised broadcast, which he tweeted in its entirety.

“In reflecting for Gibraltar on Queen Elizabeth’s lifetime of service, I think we must reflect on the fact that She was the queen of all our constitutions to date,” the Chief Minister said.

“As our Queen, she was the head of our Executive and we were expressly one of Her dominions.”

He urged the public ‘to enjoy the day tomorrow with your family and friends, tinged with sadness as it will be, commemorating the great memory of our former sovereign’.

Flags will fly at full-mast on Sunday and return to half-mast on Monday for the Queen’s funeral.

J for Justice - Elizabeth 2 Go (Like E2, Charles is NOT the Rightful King. Time will tell if THEY pull out the fake stone for another fraudulent Coronation ceremony?)


No, Mr. Fabian Picardo. I do not consent to your nonsense rhetoric.

How safe is Gibraltar and its Brit-ish Sovereignty? Gibraltar's Flag

Group of protesters boo 'God Save the King' during Charles III's proclamation in Edinburgh but are drowned out by crowd - as female anti-monarchy protester is arrested

  • Hecklers booed the proclamation of 'God Save the King' today in Edinburgh
  • Amongst hundreds of Royal fans some were disapproving of the new monarch
  • Some disapproving protestors held signs which read 'abolish the monarchy'

A proclamation of 'God Save the King' was met by boos from a small group of protestors in Edinburgh this morning but heckling was soon drowned out by jubilant cheers as Charles was proclaimed King.

Crowds had gathered in the capital city to hear the Lord Lyon King of Arms, who is responsible for overseeing state ceremonial in Scotland, formally announced the Queen's successor.

Similar announcements of the new monarch took place simultaneously in towns and cities across the UK and the Commonwealth.

But amongst the hundreds of royal fans who had turned out to watch the ceremony in Edinburgh, a small number took the opportunity to make clear their disapproval of the new monarch.
