BERLIN – Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, arrived in Berlin on Wednesday where they are to have lunch with the Chancellor of Germany.
The Royals arrived in Germany following a visit to Poland and disembarked from their plane onto a red carpet laid out at Tegel airport, with young Prince George and Princess Charlotte in tow.
William and Catherine are due to kick off their three-day visit to Germany with a lunch hosted by Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Following the lunch at the Chancellery, the Royals are due to visit the iconic Brandenburg gate in Berlin before paying their respects at the Holocaust memorial.
Later, they are scheduled to visit a center for homeless children in the Marzahn neighborhood in eastern Berlin where they are also to meet with representatives from the Robert Enke Foundation, which aims to provide support to those suffering from mental illness.
The organization is named after a German soccer player who in 2009 committed suicide following a battle with depression.
In the UK, William and Catherine are involved in a charity campaign called Heads Together, which also aims to provide mental health support.
From there, the Duke and Duchess are to meet with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier before heading to a reception at the British embassy.
