German Defence Minister met in the front yard of the historic Horse Guards building by Secretary of State for UK Defence Ben Wallace and Major General Christopher John Ghika CBE.

Defence Minister for Germany, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, visited the UK on the 16th January 2020. Her visit began this morning with a Guard of Honour provided by No 7 Company Coldstream Guards with musical support from The Band of the Irish Guards on Horse Guards Parade, and a meeting in the historic rooms of the Army’s London headquarters.

The German Defence Minister was met in the front yard of the historic Horse Guards building by the Secretary of State for UK Defence Ben Wallace and Major General Christopher John Ghika CBE.

She then moved to Horse Guards Parade where she was invited to inspect the Guard of Honour by Captain Piers Gamberini in fluent German.

The Defence Ministers went into the Horse Guards Building to hold their meeting in rooms that historically were used by the Duke of Wellington when he commanded the British Army and considered the forces now unified under modern Germany as his greatest military allies.
