Charles and Camilla to visit Germany

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are to make a four-day visit to Germany in May, Clarence House has announced.

The visit, on behalf of the British Government, will “demonstrate the depth and breadth of the UK–Germany bilateral relationship and its enduring importance to both countries”, Clarence House has said.

Charles’ household added: “The visit will highlight key themes in this relationship, as well as our shared history and cultural connections.”

The heir to the throne will meet Germany’s President Frank-Walter Steinmeier during the trip which is the latest in a string of visits, dubbed “Brexit diplomacy”, the royal family have made to Europe as the UK leaves the EU.

Charles and Camilla’s trip, from May 7-10, will see them visit the cities of Berlin, Leipzig and Munich.
