Young princesses promote Britain in Germany
Britain's princesses Beatrice and Eugenie kick off the "Great Britain Mini tour" - promoting their country and one of its biggest exports.
BRITISH princesses Beatrice and Eugenie launched the "Great Britain Mini tour" in Berlin, a year-long campaign to promote Great Britain in Germany.
Speaking at a news conference in the British embassy on Thursday (January 17) Princess Beatrice explained that the 'GREAT' campaign is designed to showcase the very best of what Britain has to offer.
The sisters then walked to Brandenburg Gate where princess Eugenie took the wheel of a specially British-branded MINI, driving the few hundred metres back to the embassy.
Over the next twelve months, the Mini will travel to all 16 German states. British foreign secretary, William Hague, will launch its tour of Bavaria in February. - Reuters
