Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall opened the 92nd Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday 4th November 2020.
Her Royal Highness was greeted at the Field of Remembrance, on the Abbey's north green, by the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle, and by the Rector of St Margaret’s Church, the Reverend Anthony Ball.
Prayers were led by the Dean, who said: ‘For the 92nd 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.
‘At the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918, the First World War ended: that date, that time, have become a symbolic moment on which to pause in silent remembrance and gratitude. With full hearts at this, our Field of Remembrance, let us pray for the peace of the whole world.’
