·1-min read

Watch live as King Charles III and the Queen Consort arrive at Schloss Bellevue palace in Berlin ahead of a banquet as part of their state visit to Germany.

Wednesday’s (29 March) visit is the King's first overseas trip since he became monarch.

The King had been due to visit France, but this visit was cancelled due to ongoing protests over pension reforms.

This evening, a state banquet will be staged in the King’s honour by German president Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

Thursday will see the King deliver a speech in the German parliament and meet with chancellor Olaf Scholz, before the royal couple depart for Hamburg on Friday where they will visit the Kindertransport memorial for Jewish children who fled to Britain.

In a joint statement released on their official Twitter account, His Majesty and Camilla said it was a “great joy” to be able to develop the “longstanding friendship" between Germany and the UK.
