This chapter describes the first–time visits to Spain by Queen Elizabeth and Mrs Thatcher in fall 1998. The visits showed that Britain was comfortable with the progress of negotiations on Gibraltar, and indicated that Spain accepted rapprochement at all levels as a necessary concomitant to those negotiations. The visits also served to demonstrate the determination on the part of the British Government that the message conveyed by the Gibraltarians through the election of Joe Bossano would not affect good relations between Britain and Spain, and would not impede the continuation of the negotiation process.
