Prince Harry to attend service for fallen soldiers
Prince Harry is to attend a Metropolitan Police remembrance service for fallen soldiers on October 20.
The 32-year-old royal – who himself served in the Army in the past – will attend the event to remember those who have lost their lives fighting on the frontline.
A tweet by Kensington Palace confirmed: “Prince Harry will attend @metpoliceuk remembrance service on 20 Oct for colleague who have lost their lives in the line of duty (sic)”
Meanwhile, today (12.10.16) Prince William is to meet with several organisations including Step Into Health, Hampshire Hospitals and DRM support to help get wounded servicemen back into work.
A separate message on the Kensington Palace Twitter account read: “The Duke of Cambridge will carry out engagements on 12th October focusing on work to provide employment opportunities for military veterans.”
Step into Health provides work experience packages of up to four weeks to help veterans explore the career opportunities available to them.
Harry recently spoke of the importance of “recognising the sacrifice” made by soldiers across the world.
At the time, he urged for people to take notice and realise the huge “debt” we owe the armed services for their work in protecting the country.
Speaking about the Walking With The Wounded expedition, he previously said: “This extraordinary expedition will raise awareness of the debt that this country owes to those it sends off to fight – only for them to return wounded and scarred, physically and emotionally.
“The debt extends beyond immediate medical care and short-term rehabilitation. These men and women have given so much. We must recognise their sacrifice, be thankful, so far as we can ever repay them for it.”
