The Duke of Cambridge has today attended a commemorative service at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
His Royal Highness joined more than 20 D-Day veterans, and members of the public, at the service in Heroes’ Square before laying a wreath at the Normandy Campaign Memorial. The service of Remembrance was been organised as part of The Royal British Legion’s commemorative programme for D-Day 75, and was led by the Honorary Arboretum Chaplains.
The Duke had the opportunity to meet the D-Day veterans invited by The Royal British Legion, and hear about their contributions in the critical months, weeks and days leading up to D-Day on 6th June 1944.
The Arboretum is part of The Royal British Legion’s family of charities, and is the nation’s year-round focal point for Remembrance and welcomes over 300,000 visitors each year.
