When King Charles and Camilla come to the state banquet, Germany shows what stars it has to offer.

The illustrious guest list is impressive.

Berlin – While King Charles III.

(74) will thank heaven that the guest list for the state banquet at Bellevue Palace is not up to His Highness, the lines in the personal office of the Office of the Federal President should not have stood still.

Who wouldn't want to be there when Charles and King's wife Camilla (75) take a seat at a table during their inaugural visit to Bellevue Palace at the invitation of Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier (67)?

For his part, the monarch has been in suspense for weeks with the guest list for his coronation on May 6th, but in Berlin he is allowed to express wishes.

He did that too and wished in advance "Let's Dance" juror

Motsi Mabuse

(41) and husband

Evgenij Voznyuk

(39) to the side.

He and Camilla are fans of the British equivalent (and original) Strictly Come Dancing, which also featured Motsi in Season 17.

Charles, who as the Prince of Wales likes to stay in Germany because he has roots here on his father's side, should also feel warmly welcomed by former Chancellor

Angela Merkel

(68), the three have of course met more often.

Surprisingly, the one who passes the royal cup is Chancellor

Olaf Scholz

(64), who is apparently otherwise indispensable.

Last but not least, his partner Britta Ernst (62) should deeply regret the missed opportunity to meet the royals.

It remains to be seen whether Charles, after pickled carp with Erfurt flower cress, beef broth, also available as a vegetarian option, chicken with mushrooms, spinach tart with roots and mushrooms, still wants to dance with Motsi.

Because the wine accompaniment is also impressive: a selection of German wines, regional sparkling wines, no champagne.

And for dessert there is prunes with East Frisian black tea and sand biscuits, not to mention the liqueur wine from the Ahr.
