Prince Charles And Camilla Visit Berlin For National Day Of Mourning 

It was the couple's first joint official overseas visit since the coronavirus pandemic began.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have attended events in Germany to commemorate the country's National Day of Mourning.

Prince Charles and Camilla are the first members of the Royal Family to take part in the Central Remembrance Ceremony.

Welcomed by President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his wife Elke Budenbender, Charles and Camilla visited the Neue Wache Central Memorial, which is dedicated to victims of war and tyranny.

A wreath was laid on behalf of the prince in front of the sculpture titled Mother With Her Dead Son designed by German artist Kathe Kollwitz in memory of her own son who died in the First World War.

Prince Charles touched the wreath in the German tradition of symbolically tidying the ribbons, before a moment of silence.

The message on the prince's poppy wreath read: "In everlasting remembrance of all victims of conflict and tyranny. Charles."

Camilla laid a posy featuring rosemary for remembrance and olive, white daisies and nerines for peace.

The prince and his wife arrived on Saturday evening, becoming the first VIPs to travel in the ministerial jet RAF Voyager following its £900,000 paint job.

It was their first joint official overseas visit since the coronavirus pandemic began.
