Canary Kate! Duchess stuns in yellow as she arrives with William at German cancer centre

THE Duchess of Cornwall brought a ray of sunshine to Germany today as she stunned in a yellow dress alongside William for a visit to German Cancer Research Centre in Heidelberg.

The Duke and Duchess, who are on a three-day tour of Germany with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, began their day in the university city where they will meet researchers and visit the stem cell research lab to learn more about their work.

Kate stunned in a yellow lace frock, designed by Jenny Packham, which she teamed with a nude pair of Monsoon wedge heels. 
Excited locals shouted out her name and waved Union flags outside.
But Kate's stunning dress wasn't on show for long as she quickly changed into a lab coat for a tour of the centre.

Inside British stem cell biologist Dr Michael Milsom, 42, originally from Chesterfield, showed the couple around one of the laboratories.
He said: "It's really helpful to have a visit from the Duke and Duchess as they publicise the importance of work we do here.
"The UK and Germany are leaders in this field of stem cell research," said the expert who has been based in Heidelberg for seven years.
He told William and Kate about the latest developments in stem cell research. 
The Leeds University graduate, told them how his team focuses on the question whether and how an accumulation of DNA damage in stem cells is the causes for ageing of an organ system.
Such damage may cause exhaustion of the stem cell pool and loss of the organ's capacity to regenerate. The work is particularly important in research into leukaemia.  
William said, "Ladies first" when he was asked to look at the cells through a microscope.
Afterwards Kate said: "It's in 3D too, which is amazing."
William, who also looked through the microscope, asked how far down the line the centre's stem cell research was and added: "It's fascinating work."
The British stem cell researcher leads the junior research group Experimental Hematology.
He added said: "I had never imagined that I would one day be presenting my research to my future King. This will be a very moving and exciting meeting for me"
Dr. Michael Baumann, chairman and scientific chair of the DKFZ  - the centre's German initials - said afterwards: "We are very proud that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided to visit the DKFZ. They have made a clear gesture which underlines the great importance of medical research for our society."
His colleague, Prof Dr. Josef Puchta, commercial chairman, added: "The decision to come to the DKFZ also serves to show that we are recognized internationally as a leading research institution."
The royals were welcomed by Winfried Kretschmann, governor of the state of Baden-Württemberg, and the board of directors of the DKFZ.
They also met the Nobel Prize winner and long-time chairman of the DKFZ, Professor Harald zur Hausen, for a brief conversation. 
Zur Hausen identified the Papillomavirus as the cause of cervical cancer and therefore paved the way for the development of a vaccine against this illness.
The royal couple also got their hands dirty as they were pictured trying their hand at making traditional German pretzels during a vist to a market in the Central Square.
