Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, landed in Washington DC yesterday and spent today touring US memorials. They visited the Lincoln and MLK Jr. memorials where they were joined by American civil rights leaders, Jesse Jackson and congressman John Lewis. They were also given a tour of Mount Vernon, George Washington’s home.
Prince Charles also spoke at an environmental conference where he called on governments and businesses to stop dumping plastics into the ocean, while the Duchess of Cornwall paid a visit to the Shakespeare Theater Company.
Tomorrow the royal couple will meet with President Obama at the White House.
