LONDON – The United Kingdom’s young royals attended a ceremony at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday to commemorate Anzac Day.
Prince Harry and his American fiancée Meghan Markle were joined by Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, to pay tribute to all Australians and New Zealanders who died in all wars and conflicts.
Prince Harry, who has served in the British Armed Forces, Australian High Commissioner to the UK Alexander Downer and his New Zealand counterpart Jerry Mateparaeat, laid wreaths at the cenotaph at Whitehall.
Anzac originally remembered the soldiers in the Australian and New Zealand (Anzac) Corps who fought the Ottoman Empire in Gallipoli in World War I although has since been broadened to commemorate all fallen soldiers from the region.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was not in attendance having just given birth to her third child on April 23.
