British Royals Attend Anzac Day Service

  April 25, 2019 at 5:32 pm by

On April 25, the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Gloucester attended a service commemorating Anzac Day to honour the lives lost during the wars in the Australian and New Zealand military forces, whilst the Duke of Cambridge is currently visiting New Zealand on an engagement.

The royals wore commemorative poppies during the solemn service at Westminster Abbey, which was also attended by the Australian High Commissioner George Brandis and New Zealand’s deputy High Commissioner David Evans. The congregation consisted largely of expats from Australia and New Zealand.

During the service, the recent terrorist attacks in Christchurch were mentioned, when an Australian extremist attacked worshippers at a mosque in the Linwood area of the city, killing 50.

Anzac Day occurs every April 25, the anniversary of the Gallipoli landings that took place in WWI and is an official remembrance of those who lost their lives due to war and conflict, much like Britain’s Remembrance Day, which occurs on November 11 each year.
