One thought on “Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall in Germany

  1. Judging by the photos, it looks like this was an excellent visit! The Duchess looked very nice, especially the long white and blue gown she wore for the state dinner. It’s a bit difficult to see, but I think she’s wearing her gorgeous diamond pear-drop necklace for the dinner. I’ll bet they’re glad to be back so they can visit their newest baby grandson!
