This British overseas territory applied to be granted city status earlier this year as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, but when the authorities examined the National Archives, kt was discovered that it had already been recognized as a city as far back as 1842, reports the BBC.

Gibraltar’s status as a city has been practically reconfirmed, which British Prime Minister Boris Johnson described as a “tremendous compliment” that celebrates the “rich history and dynamism” of the place.

“It’s great to see official recognition being given to the city of Gibraltar, a recognition of its rich history,” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a statement, adding “This official recognition reaffirms Gibraltar’s special status in Her Majesty’s realm and rightly signifies the pride Gibraltarians feel for their community and specific heritage.”
