Prince William insisted the UK and Germany are the “firmest of friends” and stressed the relationship will continue “despite Britain’s recent decision to leave the European Union.”

The future King said: “The United Kingdom and Germany proudly share the same values as open and democratic societies, and the same determination to champion those values and to defend them – not least through our very close defence and security partnerships.”

He added: “Today, we share a fundamental interest in the peace and prosperity of the continent of Europe to which we both belong.

“This relationship between the United Kingdom and Germany really matters.  It is the product of many years of working closely together.”
