Charles and Camilla to meet Holocaust survivors in Vienna

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will meet Holocaust survivors in Austria as their tour of Europe comes to an end.

Charles and Camilla will visit Vienna's Jewish Museum and meet members of the Jewish community who lived through the persecution of the Nazis, including British individuals.

The royal couple are coming to the end of a nine-day visit to Europe that has seen the Prince make a solo trip to Romania and tour Italy with his wife, where they met Pope Francis, and finally visit Austria.

The tour has been widely interpreted as a Brexit diplomacy visit with the heir to the throne renewing ties with the continent as the UK begins the process of leaving the European Union.

During the final day of their visit the Duke and Duchess will visit the Wiener Musikverein concert hall to hear the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra rehearse.

They will meet the musicians before viewing items from the venue's archive of original scores by composers like Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms.

While Camilla visits the famous Spanish Riding School, where she will see the stables and meet the riders and trainers, Charles will learn how refugees assimilate into Austrian society when he tours the Austrian Integration Fund.

The Prince and Duchess will also visit a vineyard where they will sample a range of organic produce and learn about the production of Austrian wine.
