Prince William Represents “Granny” During State Visit
Today, Prince William represented Queen Elizabeth at ceremony at the proposed site of the new Korean war memorial in London, England. Wearing a Remembrance Poppy, the Duke sat next to Park Geun-hye, President of the Republic of Korea, who later unveiled a scale model of the memorial.
Geun-hye is currently on a 3-day state visit to England, where she has spent time with the Queen (in an Angela Kelly jacket and Karl Ludwig hat) and Prince Philip.
On Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will host a reception for volunteers and staff from the London Poppy Appeal. The Duke will also visit The Royal Marsden hospital, of which the late Princess of Wales was once a patron.
On Sunday, the Commonwealth will commemorate fallen soldiers in the annual Remembrance Day ceremony.
@Ruth11239551 In Britain, many people wear poppies at this time of year to honour the fallen. It comes from the poppies of Flanders fields.
