Prince Charles attends Germany’s National day of Mourning

Britain’s Prince Charles for the first time took part in Germany’s National Day of Mourning for victims of war on 15th November 2020. Two years earlier, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier did likewise at British Remembrance Day commemorations.

In an address at the German Bundestag, Prince Charles spoke of the longstanding ties between the two countries, and said: “It is my heartfelt belief that the fundamental bond between us will remain strong: we will always be friends, partners and allies … Let us reaffirm our bond for the years ahead.”

He was speaking 75 years after the end of World War II.
