Prince Harry, Meghan Open Extended Anzac Memorial in Australia

SYDNEY – Prince Harry and his wife Meghan inaugurated on Saturday the extended ANZAC Memorial in Sydney’s Hyde Park, dedicated to the thousands of Australian soldiers who died in battle.

Hundreds of people had gathered at the entrance of the memorial to watch the royal couple open the ANZAC (Australia and New Zealand Army Corps) memorial, which was first inaugurated in 1934 as a tribute to soldiers killed during World War I.

Harry, in a tropical dress uniform of the Blues and Royals, unveiled a plaque that read “Opened by the grandson of a Queen,” similar to the one unveiled 84 years ago by Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester, that read “Opened by the son of a King.”

Accompanied by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian, the prince and Meghan, who was dressed in black, laid a floral wreath and observed a minute’s silence at the memorial.

After the ceremony, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sailed to Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour to watch an event at the Invictus Games, which Harry had created in 2014 for handicapped armed services personnel and veterans.

The royal couple will attend the opening ceremony of the Games on Saturday night.

Prince Harry and Meghan are into the fifth day of their visit to Australia, as a part of their tour of Oceania, which will also include visits to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
