Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie with their Mini
Britain's Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie drove a Mini through the streets of Berlin yesterday (18.01.13) as they launched a campaign promoting the UK.
The royal sisters - daughters of Prince Andrew and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson - flew to the German capital to support the Great Campaign, a global initiative to attract visitors, business and students to Britain.
Beatrice and Eugenie drove the Mini - emblazoned with the Union Jack flag - the short distance from the city's famous Brandenburg Gate to the British Embassy.
The event launched the Great Britain Mini tour across Germany, a trip which will showcase the very best of Britain and Beatrice was thrilled to be involved.
In a short speech before their trip in the Mini, she said: ''The Great Campaign is designed to showcase the very best that we have to offer.
''2012 is already a year of amazing memories - but as 2013 begins we've got so much we'd love for people from around the world to come and enjoy - beautiful countryside; lively cities; and some of the world's most incredible museums and hundreds of unique historic places.
''The Great Campaign also has a serious business side - Britain has trend setting fashion, groundbreaking scientists, and innovative technology companies.
''It is also a welcoming home for investors. We're here to encourage more German businesses to join the thousands that are developing successful partnerships in Britain.''
