Официальный визит королевской четы Великобритании в Германию, день 1

Начался официальный трехдневный визит британской королевы Елизаветы ІІ и принца Филиппа в ФРГ. Сегодня утром королева с супругом встретились с Федеральным президентом Йоахимом Гауком и его супругой Даниэлой Шадт и вместе с ними покаталась на лодках по реке Шпрее. Позже королевская чета встретилась с канцлером Ангелой Меркель и королева приняла участие в церемонии возложения венка к мемориале Нойе-Вахе в Берлине.

Трехдневный государственный визит британской королевы проходит на фоне стремлений Великобритании добиться поддержки Германией списка реформ ЕС, предлагаемого Лондоном. Премьер-министр Великобритании Дэвид Кэмерон также должен встретиться с Меркель 24 июня в преддверии саммита Евросоюза, назначенного на конец текущей недели.

Елизавета II остановится в роскошном пятизвездочном отеле «Адлон», где ранее при посещении Германии жил король поп-музыки Майкл Джексон. Ориентировочная цена за ночь в номере президентского класса составляет около 15 тысяч евро.

Ранее Королевская чета Великобритании посещала Германию с государственными визитами в 1965, 1978, 1992 и 2004 гг.
