The Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry are to join more than 25,000 people in northern France to mark the centenary of a defining World War One battle.

The four-day battle of Vimy Ridge saw the deaths of 3,598 Canadian forces.

Princes William and Harry will lay a pair of boots as part of a tribute to those killed near the city of Arras.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Francois Hollande are among the others attending.

I wonder about the logistics of this event. Does William have to travel separately from his father just in case? Prince Andrew as regent for King George VII for many years not really good situation for going forward after the Queen's passing.

Both Harry and William did their grandmother proud. Very dignified, respectful and definitely emotional. It sent shivers up my spine watching this.

I just really wish that these were the only kind of rememberances we needed to have. WWI was supposed to be the war to end all wars. Little could they have dreamed.

Princes Charles, William and Harry have joined together in France to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge and honour the sacrifice of Canadian troops.

Vimy Ridge, in which 3,598 Canadians died, was fought in 1917 in northern France during the First World War.

The battle was a strategic victory for the Allies and forms an important part of Canada's national identity - commemorated on the back of their $20 note.

The royals were joined by France's President Francois Hollande and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who all attended a ceremony at the site of the conflict on Sunday.

A special message from the Queen also praised the "courage" and "ingenuity" of Canadian troops.

Thank you so much Royal Norway for putting this link up with the memorial of Vimy Ridge in its entirety. I'm watching it now (beautifully closed captioned too) and already there are serious lumps in my throat. Its estimated that it could be 10,000 Canadian schoolchildren who have traveled to be there for this historic occasion.

Back to the video I goes. Thanks much again.

With the exception of the return from Switzerland when the Queen Mother died William hasn't been allowed to fly with his father since he was 12. They made an exception when the QM died so that none of the three of them had to fly back alone.

Assuming they flew to France, rather than caught the train, then yes William and Charles should have flown separately.

It had to be later then when William was 12 when they stopped flying together. Charles, William and Harry went to Canada on a tour after Diana died but William was still a teen. I can't imagine they made him fly separately on the tour.

Very nice to see Charles with his sons, I can't remember the last time I saw just the 3 of them together.

They did an official engagement together just a couple of years ago. It's just that the three of them aren't together often. I wish they could do more together and include Camilla and Catherine.

That bloody battle of Vimy Ridge (bloody in all senses) was in a way a very sad coming of age for Canada as a nation, as Galipolli was for us Aussies. A sad awakening in an unnecessary war, a war in which Britain and its Empire lost nearly a million war dead. This commemoration was terribly moving and I'm so glad the three Princes were there to pay tribute to the bravery of these young men, as of course was PM Trudeau and many many proud Canadians. The theme of poppies in boots was tremendous I thought.

They flew on different flights. Harry and Charles arrived a day or so before William. William had Tiggy with him on the other plane.

They had to actually change the law in 1983 when Diana insisted on taking William to Australia and so the age was given as 12 and they stuck to that until the QM's death when they made an exception.

William arrived later. It was on the news how he was greeted by throngs of screaming girls.
