That's unexpected, to say the least ...
Wonder how it will turn out, as the State visits in France are pretty low key these days ...

It was unexpected really, it was announced with the press shuffle that Charles would accompany them and it was "likely" be her last trip to France.

Will The Duchess of Cornwall join them? The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh going to France with The Prince of Wales - and, possibly, The Duchess of Conrwall - remembers me of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands going to state visits accompanied by The Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima.

As far as i understand, the POW will be only at the D DAY events, not for the full State visit in Paris.

When we were told that Charles was to accompany her to the D-Day landings - was that by BP or CH or just the press?

I ask because this announcement from BP has no mention of him so now I am wondering whether he is actually going at all as I would have expected the official announcement from BP to include his name if he was accompanying his parents for any part of the trip - as has happened in the past.

It was announced to the press, I believe CH had a tweet about it. I'll go have a look. The press release is just for the State Visit of which Charles is not taking part in so I imagine it would solely be in the list of engagements for June.

BP have issued a full press release for the State Visit to France which also includes details of the D-Day Commemorations. I have also put this press release on the thread dedicated to the D-Day Commemorations

5th State visit to France for HM since 1957 and the most important visit of the year for the Hollande administration.

Full program here :

Visite d’État de S.M. la Reine Elizabeth II #DDay70 - Présidence de la République

https://www.gov.uk/government/world-...news/238145.fr

A glimpse of the previous visits. Sadly the French Republican pomp and pageantry has been slowly but surely downgraded year after year. The Queen and the Duke will have a full state welcome at the Arc the Triomphe though.

@RE_DailyMail: The Marché aux Fleurs, just a few steps away from Notre Dame Cathedral, will now be called Marché aux Fleurs – Reine Elizabeth II.

@RE_DailyMail: The Queen also being treated as 'guest of honour' out of 19 heads of state at the D-Day commemorations,over and above even President Obama.

I think that is only fair. How many other current heads of state served, in any capacity, in WW2 as HM did in the ATS?
