The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall arrive in Portugal
28th March 2011Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva gave a warm welcome to The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall as they arrived today.
Their Royal Highnesses arrived in Lisbon at the start of a 10-day tour promoting UK trade.
The Prince arrived at the presidential palace in pouring rain with The Duchess, who, sheltering under an umbrella, joked to First Lady Dr Maria Cavaco Silva that they had "brought the British weather with them".
The two national anthems were played before The Prince took a salute from the presidential guard.
Part of the trip to Portugal will include a visit to the Duchess of Cadaval and her husband, Prince Charles Philippe d'Orléans.
