To Archie! Charles and Camilla celebrate with beer on tour in Germany | World News
Charles and Camilla enjoyed a German beer and danced the waltz in Munich on the third day of their tour of the country.
The royal couple, whose visit has so far stopped them from meeting the Prince of Wales’ newest grandson Archie, had the drink in traditional litre glasses.
The Duchess of Cornwall was the first to be asked to dance at a beer hall, as Hans Klaindl, 88, offered his hand for a waltz around the Hofbraunhaus brewery.
The Duke then joined her on the dance floor with Margot Biccenger.
They danced with their partners for two songs played by a live band in the hall – and Ms Biccenger said she could barely catch her breath from dancing with the prince afterwards.
Charles and Camilla arrived in Munich to a three-gun salute and were greeted by people dressed in traditional costume and Minister-President of Bavaria Dr Markus Soder.
Dr Soder gave the Prince of Wales a pair of lederhosen for baby Archie.
Prince Charles said: “Thank you, I had some years ago.”
Camilla was given some flowers, and the prince was also handed teddy bears for the new royal baby.
Charles and Camilla were shown pictures of baby Archie Harrison by reporters but may finally get to meet him themselves soon as they wrap up their four-day tour on Friday.
Earlier on Thursday, Charles visited Barenboim-Said Akademie in Berlin, which aims to unite young Arab and Israeli musicians, before joining his wife at the International Rescue Committee base in the capital where they sat in on a workshop supporting refugee women in getting jobs.
The prince visited the Siemen’s headquarters in Munich, where he was told about the history and principles of the country.
Their third day was due to end with a formal dinner hosted by Dr Soder at the Imperial Hall in the Munich Residenz.
