Duke and Duchess of Sussex pay their Respects to Veterans
Meghan and Prince Harry along with dignitaries and veterans and their families attended the official opening of the 91st Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey today.A field of scarlet poppies will blanket the Abbey's grounds to honour those who lost their lives serving in the Armed Forces.
The Field of Remembrance has been taking place since November 1928 when, according to the Abbey's web-site, The Poppy Factory took a group of disabled veterans , a tray of poppies and a collecting tin to the grounds of St. Margaret's Church at the Abbey. The tradition has grown over the decades and now tens of thousands of poppies on wooden crosses and tributes are planted each year.
