Members of the Royal Family honour war dead
Thursday, 7th November 2019
TRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex opened the 91st Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey on Thursday 7th November.
The annual event has been taking place since November 1928 when The Poppy Factory took a group of disabled veterans, a tray of poppies and a collecting tin to the grounds of St Margaret's Church. Only a handful of poppies were planted around a single cross, but it began a tradition that has grown over the decades and now tens of thousands of poppies on wooden crosses are planted every year.
