Prince Harry joins grandfather at Field of Remembrance
Britain’s Prince Harry joined his grandfather Prince Philip at the Field of Remembrance yesterday (05.11.15).
The 31-year-old royal – the son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana – arrived at Westminster Abbey in London to pay tribute to the British soldiers who fought and died for their country in the First and Second World Wars.
Bill Speakman, 88, who was attached to the 1st Battalion, King’s Own Scottish Borderers, told the Daily Express newspaper after the commemorative event of the royal pair: “They are just lovely people. It is a beautiful thing to do.
“It is wonderful being here and it is wonderful to see all the old comrades here today. We really are proud of them.”
Harry, who was dressed in his frock coat, and his grandfather walked around the field and laid their crosses of remembrance in front of two graves of unknown British soldiers from the First and Second World Wars.
The pair then took part in a two-minute silence, before they met and chatted to the veterans and the families of those who have lost their remarkable loved ones.
Before they left the garden to continue with their royal duties, the pair were invited into St Margaret’s Church to sign the “distinguished visitors” book.
Meanwhile, this is the third time the flame-haired hunk has paid a visit to the Field of Remembrance, whereas the Duke, 94, has been attending the annual event since 2003.
