Britain’s Prince Charles visits Croatian market festival
Britain’s Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall met with locals as they visited a market festival in Croatia.
The royal couple walked around the stalls at the Intangible Cultural Heritage Festival in Trvda, Osijek where they admired various products including wine and cold meats.
They later went their separate ways, with the Duchess heading off to Dakovo State Stud Farm and the Prince of Wales visiting Kopacki Rit Wetlands.
Meanwhile, to welcome them to Croatia earlier this week, the President of Croatia hosted a dinner for the royal couple, where the Prince spoke to praise the beauty of the country.
He said: “Madam President, I am enormously grateful to you for your very kind words on such a special occasion and I’m so grateful to you for arranging such a special dinner this evening.
“The last two times I have visited Croatia the country was at war and just recovering from war. This afternoon I have seen something of Zagreb and I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to see how this beautiful city has been so sensitively restored. There could be no better illustration of the extraordinary progress you have made in the past twenty years against so many difficult challenges.”
