Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry obviously didn’t spend Remembrance Sunday with the other members of the royal family in England but, the good thing is, they marked it in a sure remarkable way.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to mark the Remembrance Sunday by paying a visit to the Los Angeles National Cemetery as they revealed that they planned to personally recognise the day in their own unique way.
The couple who didn’t make the move with their son Archie laid some beautiful flowers collected from their garden at the graves of two Commonwealth soldiers. One of the soldiers from the Riyal Australian Airforce and the other one from the Royals Canadian Artillery.
Prince Harry also laid a wreath and wrote, “To all of those who have served, are serving. Thank you.”
Meghan was spotted wearing a mid-length black dress, finished with a black belt and red poppy, with a long dark hair, and of course, with a plain black face mask. While Prince Harry wore a suit and didn’t forget to put on his military medals on his suit jacket and then with a face mask too like his wife.
“It was important to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to be able to personally recognise Remembrance in their own way, to pay tribute to those who have served and to those who gave their lives.
“The couple laid flowers that the duchess picked from their garden at the gravesites of two Commonwealth soldiers, one who had served in the Royal Australian Air Force and one from the Royal Canadian Artillery,” a spokesperson for Meghan and Harry said in a statement.
But the move by the couple didn’t seem to go down well with Piers Morgan as he quickly criticises them on Twitter.
“My god, they’ve even turned Remembrance Sunday into another self-publicity stunt. Have they no shame?” Morgan tweeted.
Royal commentator Dan Wootton quickly sent out his own message on Twitter but not like Morgan lash, “How lucky that a photographer happened to be here to capture this deeply personal moment.”
While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were on the visit, other members of the Royal Family including the Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William and Kate attended the ceremony at the Cenotaph in London.
In an interview with the Declassified podcast Harry, who spent 10 years in the armed forces, described Remembrance Sunday as a moment for respect and for hope.
“The act of remembering, of remembrance, is a profound act of honour. It’s how we preserve the legacies of entire generations and show our gratitude for the sacrifices they made in order for us to be able to live the lives we live today,” Harry said.
