King Charles and the Queen Consort have boarded a high-speed train bound for Hamburg for the final day of their state visit to Germany.
King heads to Hamburg on last leg of 1st foreign trip
King Charles III has boarded a carriage, though not the horse-drawn kind, for the final leg of his three-day trip to Germany, travelling by train from Berlin to the port city of Hamburg, where he planned to remember pivotal events from World War II.
German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier accompanied Charles and Camilla, the Queen Consort, on the two-hour high-speed train journey from the capital on Friday.
The couple landed on Wednesday in Berlin for Charles’ first foreign trip as monarch. Steinmeier greeted them at the Brandenburg Gate with full military honours and later hosted a banquet in their honour.
On Thursday, Charles became the first monarch to address the German parliament, telling assembled MPs that “together we must strive for the security, prosperity and well-being that our people deserve”.
