Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Remembrance Events
Meghan and Harry together with other members of the Royal Family attended with The Queen at the annual Royal Festival of Remembrance at the Albert Hall in London this evening. The couple had also attended last year.The festival is hosted by the Royal British Legion and it has taken place every year since 1923. The festival commemorates the coming together of men and women throughout the commonwealth to stand together and fight for freedom, and specifically remembers those who lost their lives.
This year marks the 75th anniversary since 1944 and the second world war, and the 100th anniversary of the U.K. Intelligence (listening agency) GCHQ.
Meghan and Harry also participated in the Remembrance Sunday service on Sunday November 10th at the Cenotaph in London. Two minutes silence was observed at 11.00 a.m. followed by the laying of wreaths in memory of service members who died in World War I and other military conflicts since then. The event is televised live and shown around Britain.
On Monday 11th November 2019 Meghan and Harry posted a thank you to everyone who serves, to everyone who has served in the past, and to their families, to mark both Remembrance Day around the Commonwealth and for Veterans Day in the States.
