Commemoration of the Start of WWI in Belgium; August 4, 2014

This event is taking place at St. Symphorien, near Mons in Belgium. Heads of State will be present including from Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom.

The first and last British soldiers who died during the First World War are buried in this bi-national (German & British) cemetery.

The Canadian troops liberated the city of Mons and George L Price was the last soldier to die during this conflict, at 10.58 on November 11, 1914 at Viller sur-Haine near Mons, two minutes before the ceasefire.

HRH The Duke Cambridge, accompanied by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, will attend a service of remembrance hosted by the Government of Belgium at Liege. TRHs will subsequently travel to St Symphorien Military Cemetery, a Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery in Mons, Belgium, for a UK commemorative event.


HRH Prince Henry of Wales will attend the "Step Short" commemorative event in Folkestone. HRH will subsequently join The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at St Symphorien Military Cemetery in Mons.

Every working member of the BRF is attending a service on 4th August. Except the Duke of York who will be attending an event which will be announced at a later date (source @royalreporter)

Just as a reminder, this is a thread for the commemoration event in Mons, Belgium, as it will be attended by members of multiple royal families. Events attended by members of one family only (such as all the events in the UK on August 4) should be posted in the respective family forum.

Is anyone going to this event? I want to go with a friend of mine but haven't done something like this before (except when the King came to Ghent, but that was organized for the people). I read on the website that visitors will not be allowed on the cemetery for a few days because of this commemoration and that the visit of the Duke and Duchess will be televised on a big screen. Does this mean no-one will get to see the royals?
