Campaigners say right-wing attempts to singe King of Spain’s beard nothing new

Zimbio

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has warned that the current furore around Gibraltar as Brexit discussions open may be a ploy by right-wing elements in the Tory Party to launch a fresh attack on the King of Spain’s beard.

King Felipe V1 who sports a salt and pepper beard is thought to be the only serving hirsute European monarch.

Francis Drake, after agreement with Queen Elizabeth 1st, launched an attempt to singe the beard of an earlier King of Spain, also called Felipe at Cadiz, prior to the 1588 Armada.

The Daily Mail complained about King Felipe’s beard on his appointment in 2014:

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, we’re no great fans of Royal Families but we are certainly prepared to defend King Felipe V1’s beard against Tory attempts to singe it.
