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

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.

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.

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 :biggrin:

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.
