Sussexes and Cambridges reunite at Remembrance event

 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reunited for the Royal British Legion's annual Festival of Remembrance.

They joined the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at the Royal Albert Hall to commemorate those who lost their lives in conflicts, reports BBC.

It is their first appearance as a group since Harry and Meghan said they were struggling with public life.

The annual event is also being attended by servicemen and women.

It comes ahead of the Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph in central London on Sunday, which will also be attended by senior members of the Royal Family.

Saturday's event marks 75 years since notable battles of 1944, including Monte Cassino, Kohima and Imphal, D-Day and the collaboration of Commonwealth and Allied forces.

It also celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and pays tribute to the RFA Mounts Bay, which delivered supplies and aid to the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian this year.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his girlfriend Carrie Symonds joined other members of the Royal Family in the royal box.

The Duchess of Cornwall was also present, after she was forced to pull out of engagements earlier in the week due to ill health.

The service at the Royal Albert Hall was also attended by the Duke of York, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.
