WILLIAM AND KATE CHAT WITH YOUNGSTERS AT BERLIN HOMELESS CENTRE

After meeting cheering crowds against the postcard-like backdrop of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, Britain's Prince William and his wife, Kate, paid a visit to one of the German capital's less frequented areas to meet socially disadvantaged children.

The royal couple chatted with youngsters at a centre for so-called "Strassenkinder" (street children) in the eastern district of Marzahn.

A video posted by Kensington Palace on Twitter showed a crowd of waving children in the garden outside a high-rise flat.

"It was lovely to meet so many of you today!" the palace, which represents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, said.

The couple also visited the Robert Enke Institute, which raises awareness about mental health disorders, where they met the widow of Robert Enke, a German goalkeeper who took his life in 2009 aged 32.
