UK Queen will be on charm offensive during Germany visit
Queen Elizabeth II, who has always impressed people with her sense of style, has something big in her bag for Germany this time, as Prime Minister David Cameron believes she will play a major role in strengthening Anglo-German ties.
During the summit, the Prime Minister will mention for the first time just what it is that he wants to renegotiate with the rest of Europe, before the British people vote on their membership in a referendum in 2016 or 2017, reports the Local de.
A chat with Merkel at an opulent state banquet hosted by President Joachim Gauck,at the Schloss Bellevue may be particularly in form of outcome.
Cameron believes that both UK and Germany can bring together other European nations, who are more interested in trading than in propping up weaker neighbours and supporting greater political integration.
It is being said that with this trip, the Queen is now a charm offensive that almost no country on Earth can equal.
The trip is seen as much more significant because after 63 years and nearing her 90th birthday, the Queen’s career of flying the flag abroad to support British interests draws to a close.
Moreover, this can be probably the very last trip that the Queen will make as she gradually reduces her royal duties.
German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said that in 60 years that the Queen has been in office, nothing has ever emerged from conversations that she has held.
He added that this will of course also not happen when she comes to Berlin.
