She and her husband will stay in the UK for two more days as part of the royal visit.

Harry, who sat next to the Marchioness of Cholmondeley - ex-model Rose Hanbury, 33 - will join Felipe and Letizia at Westminster Abbey today where they will lay a wreath on the tomb of the unknown warrior.

In Thursday's auction in Madrid, however, they went for 201,555 and 242,287 euros, one of them to a car dealership and the other to a private buyer, the finance ministry announced in a statement. In sectors such as banking, Spain is the second- biggest investor in Britain behind the United States.

Speaking after the King's address, Mr Rosindell told Sky News it was "inappropriate" for him to raise Gilbraltar, but the language "did not justify storming out".

Addressing business leaders in London, Felipe hailed the close ties between Britain and Spain but said: "We cannot deny that the scenario originated by the UK decision to leave the EU has generated uncertainty and doubts for our companies".

Earlier the Spanish monarch and his wife were the centre of a welcoming ceremony full of pomp and pageantry befitting a three-day state visit.

Felipe has ordered members of the royal family not to accept any extravagant gifts.

The Spanish royals also signed the visitors' book.

'Indeed, the sheer scale of Spanish investment in Britain demonstrates Spain's continued confidence in the strength of the UK economy, and shows that we can and will maintain the closest possible relationship.

But Felipe's words drew a stinging rebuke from Gibraltar's chief minister Fabian Picardo, who said his comments suggested he was treating the Rock as something that could be "traded from one monarch to another" like a "pawn in a chess game".

This morning, the royal couple arrived in Britain and were quickly brisked away to meet the Queen and Prince Philip. Outside, the Spanish queen greeted well-wishers, including a group of schoolchildren.

'This week's state visit is an opportunity to celebrate the historic bond between our countries and our citizens.
