The Prince Of Wales Is Heading To France To Be Accompanied By European Royals

The Prince of Wales is set to join several of his European royal counterparts overseas to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

Prince William, 41, will attend the international commemorative ceremony at Omaha Beach, Saint Laurent sur Mer, on 6 June, alongside 25 heads of state and veterans from around the world.

Accompanying the father-of-three will be King Frederik of Denmark, Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, and King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium.

Earlier in the day, King Charles and Queen Camilla will attend the Ministry of Defence and Royal British Legion’s event at the British Normandy Memorial in Ver-sur-Mer. Meanwhile, William will attend the Canadian commemorative ceremony at the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-Mer.

The Princess of Wales is not expected to join her husband in France due to her ongoing cancer treatment.

Teaming Up with the European royals

William and Kate have enjoyed meetings with several European royals in recent years and share a particularly warm friendship with King Frederik and Queen Mary.

While Kate and Mary are often compared for their brunette locks and similar sense of style, they also share common interests in their royal work. Queen Mary established her own foundation in 2007 to improve the lives of vulnerable women and children, while the Princess of Wales launched the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood in June 2021, focusing on the impact of the early years on later life.

The two royal ladies joined forces in Denmark in February 2022, when Kate accompanied Mary on a visit to the Danner Crisis Centre, which helps women and children affected by domestic violence.

The British royal couple were also reunited with the Danish royals at a Buckingham Palace reception the night before King Charles’ coronation.

The Prince and Princess of Wales held a meeting with Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit at Windsor Castle in March 2023, following a royal tour to Norway in 2018.

Kate’s first-ever solo trip abroad in 2016 took her to the Netherlands, where she met King Willem-Alexander for lunch. The Dutch royals also enjoyed a state visit to the UK during Queen Elizabeth II’s reign in 2018.
