His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex opened the Royal British Legion's 90th Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey on Thursday 8th November 2018.
His Royal Highness arrived at the Field of Remembrance, on the Abbey's North Green, shortly before 11.00am and was greeted by the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall.
Prayers were led by the Dean, who said:
For the 90th 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 Sara Jones, President of the Royal British Legion Poppy Factory, invited The Duke of Sussex 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.
Last Post was sounded from the parapet of St Margaret's Church by a bandsman of the Scots Guards.
