Accompanied by the Mayor of Hamburg, Olaf Scholz, the couple was given a private tour of the museum where they were shown various displays including a core sample from under the sea.
The Duke and Duchess had a talk with experts involved in protecting our marine environment.
Then Duke and Duchess make their way further through Hamburg’s dockside warehouse quarter to the Elbphilharmonie. Opened in January 2017, the “Elphi” was built with the aim of creating a new city landmark.
It is one of the biggest concert halls in the world and renowned for its advanced acoustics.
The Duke and Duchess joined the orchestra on stage, before listening to a special performance by the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra.
At the stage, Duchess told the team that she used to play the Flute during her school life. Duchess also tried her hand at conducting the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra team.

More than 300 pupils enjoyed the orchestra with Prince William as Duchess of Cambridge Catherine was conducting the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra team.
After enjoying their time at the Elphi, Duke and Duchess headed towards the last engagement of the Royal tour ‘the Airbus’. Before departing they met the exciting crowd waiting for them outside the Elphi.

They departed by boat and travelled down the River Elbe to their final destination.
Airbus is a division of the multinational Airbus SE that manufactures civil aircraft. It is based in Blagnac, France, a suburb of Toulouse with production and manufacturing facilities mainly in France, Germany, Spain, China, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The couple toured the aircraft complex and met the German and English apprentices.
The couple visited the hall where the A320 aircraft is assembled. The wings are made in the UK and are attached to the planes in Germany.
At the last stop of the tour, the Royal couple met the trainees, ask them about their occupation and got a chance to see modern aviation technology.
The Cambridge bid farewell to Germany at Airbus and headed home.

Before departing both kids got a chance to play around the tarmac and have fun. George and Charlotte joined in to explore an EC145 helicopter – the same one The Duke of Cambridge flies.
For the last day of the tour, Duchess of Cambridge wore a lilac custom dress from one of her regular labels Emilia Wickstead. As the piece is custom made so it is not available.
Duchess finished her look with Kiki McDonough lavender Amethyst Pear and Oval Drop earrings that we first saw in 2016 during Bhutan arrival. The earrings feature large pear and oval-shaped lavender amethyst stones surrounded by dazzling diamonds and set in 18 carets white gold.
