William and Kate to meet Holocaust survivors in Poland

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have visited a former concentration camp as they continue their tour of Poland.

The Royal couple will meet five Holocaust survivors at Stutthof, near Gdansk, where 65,000 people were killed during World War Two.

Speaking at a garden party to mark the Queen’s birthday, Prince William hailed the country’s “incredible bravery” during the Nazi occupation.

Prince William and his family are on a five-day tour of Poland and Germany.

Prince George, three, and Princess Charlotte, two, have accompanied their parents on the trip.

In Germany later this week, Chancellor Angela Merkel will hold a private meeting with the royal couple in Berlin before they visit the city’s famous landmark, the Brandenburg Gate.

The duke and duchess will also visit Berlin’s Holocaust museum and memorial.
