His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales opened the Royal British Legion's 89th Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey on Thursday 9th November 2017.
Prince Harry arrived at the Field of Remembrance, on the Abbey's North Green, shortly before 11 am and was greeted by the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall.
Prayers were led by the Dean, who said:
For the 89th time at the Field of Remembrance we meet again to remember those who gave their lives in the conflicts of our time that we might enjoy freedom and peace.
Mrs Sarah Jones, President of the Royal British Legion Poppy Factory, invited Prince Harry to lay a cross of remembrance in front of two wooden crosses from the Graves of Unknown British Soldiers from the First and Second World Wars.
