Prince William and Kate Middleton Enjoy Tea with Veterans While Commemorating D-Day
The pair attended two events to mark the historic occasion as the world remembers the sacrifices and heroism of troops involved in the landings.
The young royal couple first had tea with veterans in the town of Arromanches and chatted to pensioners who fought bravely in World War II.
In addition to President Obama‘s speech, Prince William gave an address honoring those who lose their lives in the war.
“They gave up everything for our freedom,” he said. “They lie now together in the beautifully kept cemeteries that lie on the coast… However, today is also about the young. It is vital that this sacrifice, and the reasons for this sacrifice, are never forgotten.”
