Prince Harry and the Duke of Edinburgh Visit the Field of Remembrance

To continue celebrating Poppy Day, Prince Harry and his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh visited the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey.

There, the royals listened to the "Last Post" before taking part in two minutes of silence for fallen soldiers.  After, they looked at 100,000 memorial crosses that have been planted, and spoke to veterans and Royal British Legion volunteers.

Harry wore the Household Cavalry Cloak order and a pale blue beret to the Army Air Corps.  In addition to being an officer, Harry holds two honorary military appointments in both the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force.

Prince Philip is Lord High Admiral of the Navy and had a brilliant navy career before giving it up full-time to support his wife, Queen Elizabeth.
