The 38-year-old Duchess of Sussex and the 35-year-old Duke of Sussex will visit the "Memorial Field" in front of Westminster Abbey on Thursday, November 7, with the Duchess Camilla, 72, as part of the Remembrance Day celebrations. This announced Buckingham Palace.
Harry and Meghan on the road with Camilla
The "Field of Remembrance" on the lawn of St. Margaret's Church in Westminster (between Westminster Abbey and Westminster Palace) is a memorial garden for fallen servicemen. Open every year for eight days around Remembrance Day (November 11), it includes 250 small parcels, each reserved for an armed force or regiment. Visitors can buy commemorative wooden signs (mostly crosses) and distribute them in memory of the dead.
The royals honor the dead
This year, the Memorial Garden is open for the 91st time. This is the seventh official visit of Prince Harry in 2019 and the premiere of Meghan and Camilla. The Royals will place a souvenir cross and commemorate the "dead pole", a military horn sound signal, for two minutes in the calm of the dead. The trio will then visit the memorial garden and meet with veterans from all sectors of the armed forces.
On Saturday (November 9) and Sunday (November 10), Harry, Meghan and Camilla will join other members of the royal family, including 93-year-old Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, 70, the Prince William, 37, and Duchess Catherine, 37. Perform performances as part of Remembrance Day.
