Charles and Camilla Conclude European Tour in Austria

On Thursday, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall finished their European tour in the beautiful city of Vienna.

Their day started at the Jewish Museum, where Charles and Camilla met Holocaust survivors and listened to their stories about the camps, their families and life afterwards. Prince Charles spoke about his grandmother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, and her efforts during the Second World War, protecting a Jewish family from the Nazis at her residence in Athens.

Other events during the day were a stop at the famed Musikverein for a rehearsal of the Vienna Philharmonic and time at the family-owned Weinbau Buscheschank Obermann vineyard. Here, the Prince joked that he “always finds it so difficult” to understand wine connoisseurs as they describe taste. The Duchess on the other hand is well versed in the lingua vinum – a “great red wine enthusiast” according to her husband.

Charles and Camilla separated for their final engagements: the Prince went to the Austrian Integration Fund for a roundtable discussion on modern slavery; while the Duchess visited the Spanish Riding School.
