Charles honoured for environmental efforts in Berlin

Thursday April 30, 2009

Prince Charles' efforts on behalf of the environment were recognised , as he and the Duchess of Cornwall touched down in Berlin on Wednesday as part of their four-day tour of Europe. 
The Prince was presented with a Sustainability award at an evening ceremony (pictured). Earlier in the day the royal couple had lunched with German president Horst Koehler.
Their arrival caused quite a stir in the German capital,  where hundreds of well-wishers had turned out in front of the British embassy hoping to catch a glimpse of the pair. On the agenda for their stay were visits to the Allied Museum, which commemorates the efforts of US and British soldiers in WWII, and to the newly restored Neues Museum. 
On Thursday Charles and Camilla head for Potsdam, where the Prince is due to participate in talks on climate change and they'll then visit Sanssouci palace, the former summer residence of Frederick the Great
