In a year unlike any other, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall remember those who lost their lives in service to their country.

On Wednesday 4th November, The Duchess of Cornwall attended a service at the Field of Remembrance in Westminster Abbey. Read more here.

Her Royal Highness also recently joined a virtual 'Tank Tea' with veterans and serving members of The Royal Lancers.

The Duchess met Colonel Charrington and Dick Ward, who took part in the call, when Her Royal Highness laid a Royal Lancers Wreath at commemorations to mark the 75th anniversary of VJ-Day at the National Memorial Arboretum.

The Prince and The Duchess took part in the Royal British Legion's annual Festival of Remembrance, which this year was pre-recorded due to the pandemic. 

The Prince paid tribute to the Armed Forces, past and present, during the service, while Her Royal Highness highlighted the work of military and civilian nurses.



On Remembrance Sunday, Their Royal Highnesses attended a service at the Cenotaph in Whitehall. The Prince of Wales lay a wreath on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, as well as his own. The Duchess of Cornwall joined The Queen, The Duchess of Cambridge and other members of The Royal Family to watch the service from the balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

On Armistice Day, The Prince and The Duchess marked the centenary of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey. The service commemorates an unknown British serviceman, whose body was brought from Northern France and buried at Westminster Abbey on 11th November 1920. It represents all those who lost their lives in World War I but whose place of death was unknown, or whose bodies were unidentified.

Following burial on the 11th November, the Grave of the Unknown Warrior received over a million visitors at the abbey. The site today remains one of the most visited war graves in the world.
