PRINCE HARRY WILL VISIT THE FIELD OF
REMEMBRANCE AT WESTMINSTER ABBEY

London

Thursday 9th November, 2017

Prince Harry will visit the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey on Thursday 9th November 2017. His Royal Highness will be met by The Dean of Westminster, the President of The Poppy Factory and the National President of The Royal British Legion.

Prince Harry will lay a Cross of Remembrance in front of wooden crosses from the Graves of Unknown British Soldiers from the First and Second World Wars. The ‘Last Post’ will sound followed by a two minutes’ silence after which His Royal Highness will visit the plots meeting veterans from past and more recent conflicts.

This is the 89th year of the Field of Remembrance. The first Field of Remembrance was held in the grounds of Westminster Abbey in November 1928, when only two Remembrance Tribute Crosses were planted, but it began a tradition that took root and has grown and grown over the decades. There are now approximately 70,000 crosses planted. Each Remembrance Tribute carries a personal message to someone who lost his or her life in the Service of our country.
