The grand occasion of the Field of Remembrance which has been ongoing since November 1928 at Westminster Abbey was graced by the duke and duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Thursday,  as the first in the series of remembrance ceremonies. 

The remembrance held at Westminster Abbey is organised by The Poppy factory and it features hundreds of wooden crosses that are decorated with paper poppies, all in remembrance of, and to pay tribute to all those who have fallen while serving in the Armed Forces. 

Prince Harry who himself is a military man with many years of service particularly two years in Afghanistan paid his respect in full uniform by saluting the many crosses which symbolised the fallen while Meghan lowered her head in a show of respect as “The Last Post” the famous bugle call which is played at Commonwealth military funerals and remembrance events was played to all. 

Due to certain health issues, the Duchess of Cornwall who should have accompanied the royal couple could not be in attendance but was rightly represented with the actions of the royal couple.
