Day three of the Royal Tour of Poland and Germany began in Poland, where the Cambridge family bid farewell to the country, thus ending their brief but successful visit.
Upon arrival at Tegel Airport in Berlin, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were welcomed by local dignitaries. Charlotte was presented a precious posy, and gave a royal curtsey to say thank you!
The first engagement of the day was a private meeting with Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel. William met with Chancellor Merkel last year during his visit to Dusseldorf.
Following their private meeting, William and Kate visited the Brandenburg Gate.
The gate is one of the most famous landmarks in Germany, iconicly regarded as a symbol of German unification following World War II.
The photographs from this visit will undoubtedly become another iconic memory of the Cambridge’s tour.
The Duke and Duchess garried out a brief walkabout to greet the hordes of crowds who came to see them at Pariser Platz.
The next engagement took a somber tone as the Duke and Duchess visited the Holocaust Memorial and Museum.
William and Catherine toured the museum then visited the memorial to pay their respects.
In the afternoon, the Duke and Duchess travelled to Marzahn where they visited Strassenkinder, a charity that supports disadvantaged youth.
During the visit, William and Kate met with representatives from the Robert Enke Foundation. The organization raises awareness for mental health issues, especially in connection with sports, in memory of the charity’s namesake footballer.
Following the visit to Marzahn, the Cambridges returned to central Berlin where they met with President Steinmeier at Bellevue Palace.
The final event of the day took place at the British Ambassador’s residence, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a Queen’s Birthday Party held in the gardens.
For this morning’s events, Kate wore a cornflower blue coat dress by Catherine Walker. The bespoke piece is similar to the red coat dress by the same designer that the Duchess wore in Canada in 2011.
Beneath the dress, Kate wore a currently-unidentified lace dress with a scalloped hem.
The Duchess of Cambridge debuted a few new accessories. She carried a new blue satin clutch by Jimmy Choo. For jewels, Kate wore new earrings and matching necklace by Kiki McDonough. Kate also wore her trusty Gianvito Rossi pumps.
This evening, Kate wore a vibrant red maxi dress by Alexander McQueen. It was a very surprising, very bohemian look for the Duchess.
Tomorrow is another fun day of the Royal Tour!
