More than a year later it’s time again: Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla are coming to Germany. At the end of the week, they will go to Berlin at the invitation of Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
The British heir to the throne, Prince Charles, and his wife, Duchess Camilla, attended a central memorial gala in Berlin on Memorial Day on November 15. On Tuesday, the British embassy announced that the visit would take place at the invitation of Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
Charles and Camilla attend a wreath-laying ceremony at the Neue Wache in Berlin-Mitte and then take part in the memorial hour in the Bundestag. Charles will also give a speech at the memorial service. The letter stated that this year’s Memorial Day is dedicated to German-British friendship. The couple also announced their visit via their official Twitter channel.
Daniela Shelley, Secretary General of Volkswagen, candidly thanks the Prince of Wales for his visit: “This year has been a challenge for all of us. The fact that Prince Charles has nonetheless agreed to speak on Memorial Day this year is a special sign that guides future reconciliation between our peoples.”
The speech will be broadcast live on TV
According to her, this is the first time that a member of the British royal family will participate in the Central Memorial Day event in Germany. Charles and Camilla last visited Germany in May 2019. Since 1962, Charles has visited Germany more than 30 times, both officially and confidentially.
Anyone who wants to hear Prince Charles’ speech will have the opportunity on TV. On Sundays from 1.30pm, both ZDF and Phoenix will broadcast the event live.
