The final day of the Royal Tour of Germany and Poland took the Cambridges to Hamburg – Germany’s second largest city.
William and Kate surprised commuters by taking public transport, a sight you don’t see very often!
Their first stop was the Maritime Museum on the banks of the River Elbe.
William and Kate met with scientists to celebrate the UK-German Year of Science, which focuses on oceans. Kate recently reopened the Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall, which also spotlighted oceanic research.
Next up, the Cambridges visited the Elbphilharmonie.
The “Elphi” was opening in January of this year to create a new city landmark. It is one of the biggest concert halls in the world and boasts impressive advanced acoustics.
William and Catherine met with orchestra members and toured the stage and facilities.
The Duke and Duchess were joined by local children for a special performance by the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra.
Following the visit to Elphi, William and Kate did a brief walkabout to greet the hordes of people who came to see them.
William and Catherine departed Hamburg by boat to their final destination, Airbus.
They toured the facilities and met with staff and apprentices. William and Kate toured the assembly line and saw how the wings are attached to planes.
The Cambridge family departed from the Airbus facility, where Charlotte was not amused!
William, Kate, George, and Charlotte gave one final wave to the cameras as they head back to the United Kingdom.
For today’s events, Kate wore a bespoke lilac dress from Emilia Wickstead.
She accessorized with Kiki McDonough earrings, Gianvito Rossi shoes, and a new Anya Hindmarch clutch.
It was a wonderful, memorable tour and we cannot wait to see the Cambridge family again soon!
