Where did he sit during the service?

Could he also have had a family connection and that is why he went to Somme rather than Canada?

It's a good day for poetry. Harry's choice: First World War Poems - Before Action by William Noel Hodgson

He seems particularly in the past today - feeling the weight of it in the pictures I have seen of him.

As much as he lights up with children and wounded warriors, he dims in the presence of monuments to those who fought for freedom. Bless his heart.

Wonderful photographs of a moving occasion. I remember going around those war graves years ago. So many hundreds of thousands of deaths...

The Duchess of Cambridge told schoolchildren she was finding her visit to the Somme "emotional," as she toured a new museum dedicated to those lost in the bloody battle.

Kate said the experience had been "very moving" as she met British and French teenagers attending the centenary commemorations at Thiepval, France.

She was touring a new visitor centre at the Lutyens-designed Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme with the Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry and French President Francois Hollande.

I'm so glad that Timothy got to speak at the end of the event.
That poem is so poignant!

Sidenote: you know how you imagine someone speaking?! And they sound nothing like it! That was Timothy for me.

I found this:

BBC iPlayer - Battle of the Somme 100 - Thiepval

I hope it's what you were looking for. For future reference incase anyone else wants to know, I just did a search for "Thiepval" on the BBC website and this was the first result.

The Duchess of Cornwall wore different brooches during the commemorations.

She wore the poppy & cornflower brooch with the 9th/12th Lancers brooch during the Thiepval Memorial service.
http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2016/...7382738824.jpg

She wore the Pellatt brooch of The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada regiment with something else at the the Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Memorial (mislabeled by the DM as the Ulster Memorial service.)
http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2016/...7398663158.jpg

Can anyone identify what she is wearing in addition to the Pellatt brooch? It does not appear to be the poppy & cornflower brooch.

At the Ulster Memorial service she wore only the 9th/12th Lancers brooch without the poppy & cornflower brooch.

Thanks

I tried this before, but it only works inside the UK!

Your comment has made me curious. At what time marker in the video does Tim speak?

Great to see Tim there and to hear him speak It is a rare event I have seen him without Anne, as he is usually there as support. But he is on the commission for commonwealth war graves (with the Duke of kent who is president).

Paris Match has some video of the ceremony and its aftermath that I hadn't seen anyone post, including (starting just after the 2 minute mark) some "behind the scenes" video of Hollande, Charles and Camilla and William, Kate, and Harry leaving after the ceremony.
