Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in Germany for a three-day tour. The couple's European trip comes as Britain negotiates its exit from the European Union. Shortly after they arrived, German Chancellor Angela Merkel received them.
The European Commission's package of eurozone reforms was billed as the EU's bold vision for a post-Brexit union. But it comes as Brexit talks verge on collapse and domestic German politics remain up in the air.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May hopes her Brexit talks with European Council President Donald Tusk will yield something to write home about. But what impact could Germany's political vacuum have on any progress?
The young French president has decided to save the planet. He has put Donald Trump in his place, and is also taking advantage of the current vacuum that has opened up in Berlin's absence, says Jens Thurau.
Germany's European neighbors are not overly concerned by the aftermath of the election in Berlin. They expect Angela Merkel to remain the "dealmaker" in Europe. Trust in her appears as strong as ever, says Barbara Wesel.
