Charles and Camilla: Visit to Portugal - 28-30 March 2011

From the portuguese press:


Jornal de Notícias - Prince Charles visits Portugal

Diário de Notícias - Prince Charles comes to Portugal from 28 to 30 March

The content of both articles is very similar. The President of the Republic's office confirmed that both Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall will be visiting Portugal by the end of the month. They will visit Lisbon, Évora, Odemira and Sintra.
On the 28 they will be received by the President in the Palace of Belém. That same day they will visit the Naval School and the School-Ship Sagres. That evening a banquet will be held by the President in honour of the visiting couple in the Palace of Queluz.
On the 29 the Prince will visit the company Vitacress Portugal in Odemira, heading to évora afterwards. That same afternoon he will inaugurate the requelification of the Monserrate Park in Sintra.
On the 30, he will meet the prime-minister, José Sócrates.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, are visiting Portugal on Monday through Wednesday.

Trade relations, renewable energies and the sea are the main themes highlighted in this visit, according to the British embassy in Lisbon.

On the first day, the Prince of Wales will be welcomed at the Belém Palace by Portuguese president Aníbal Cavaco Silva, after a visit to the monastery of Jerónimos, to place a wreath at the tomb of Luís de Camões.

The program for the first day includes a visit to the Alfeite Naval Base, where Prince Charles will visit the school-ship Sagres and deliver a prize to the best student, in an English teaching program to the Portuguese naval cadets.

In the evening, Charles and Camilla are honored with a banquet offered by Cavaco Silva at the Palace of Queluz.

On Tuesday, Prince Charles will visit Vitacress Portugal, a company specialized in fresh vegetables, which is operating in Montijo, headind afterwards to Évora, to ackowledge the renewable energy projects in that city.

The program for Tuesday also includes a visit to Clube Naval de Cascais (where the Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will attend a sailing regatta adapted for disabled people) and the Monserrate Park, in Sintra .

The program also includes an awards ceremony for the Portuguese companies that have invested in the United Kingdom and a celebration of the 100.th anniversary of the Luso-British Chamber of Commerce.

After the visit to Portugal, the couple goes to Spain and concludes the trip in Morocco, on April 6th.

Lovely pictures.

Ironically, the weather in London is lovely - bright and sunny, with temperatures around 15-17 degrees, whilst Portugal seems wet and dreary!

uhm, you said London then you must say Lisbon not Portugal, cause the weather and temperature from Lisbon is not the same in the whole country, especially on the South Portugal which was Sunny today.

There's the video about the previous visits (I posted it on the current news thread, as this one was still locked), and this one:
http://www.tvi24.iol.pt/aa---videos-...2715-5796.html
New videos must be aired at the 8h00 newscasts.

Well, we don't translate all the names... Princes Harry and William don't get translation (to Henrique or Guilherme, for example). But Charles is translated as Carlos and the Queen is also translated as Isabel

Yes, they were unlucky with the weather today... just a couple of days ago, it was bright and sunny. I've seen the weather forecast and the sun is returning only on Friday. Temperature is mild though... 12-17 degrees in Lisbon.

Carlos e Camilla 'informais' na visita à Escola Naval [com fotogaleria] - Sol

Quote:
After the meeting with the President, the Prince of Wales was received by the Chief of the Army.

After the military honors, Charles and Camilla met the students of the Navy, who found them very "informal" and "relaxed".

Prince Charles then headed to the first floor of the school to deliver a diploma to the best student of the English course.

At 17h00, the Prince boarded the school-ship Sagres and signed the book of honor of the vessel.

The Prince left the ship holding an umbrella, looked at the cameras that and told the journalists: "You got a bit wet".

Unfortunately, as I expected there were no tiaras! Or any serious jewelery for that matter, to bad! Although the Duchess looks very good in that blue dress.
