Meghan Markle on Thursday, made her first visit to the Field of Remembrance day service at Westminster Abbey in London, as she joined her husband Prince Harry who before today, has being making a solo appearance for over two years.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are making the visit to the Field of remembrance day service in honour of those who lost their lives in war.

The Royal Family of Sussex, as reported by the People, had been scheduled to be joined by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, but she was forced to pull out because of a chest infection.

A spokesperson at Camilla’s office at Clarence House said, “The Duchess of Cornwall has been told by her doctor to cancel her engagements owing to a chest infection which has got progressively worse over the last few days.”

The Field of Remembrance day is a place where former servicemen and women, as well as members of the public, can plant a cross-carrying a personal message in memory of those who have lost their lives in action. When it first took place in 1928, only two Remembrance Tribute Crosses were planted, now there are about 70,000 crosses produced by the Poppy Factory, of which Camilla is a patron. The Field at Westminster Abbey stays open for 10 days.

Each of the crosses represents a member of the Armed Forces who has given their life in service of their country.

Meghan and Harry took turns to placed their crosses in the garden and the Last Post was sounded by a lone bugler, where they stood for a two-minute silence to remember those who have died in service of their country. They then toured the field meeting with met veterans at the Abbey.

The Field of Remembrance was opened by The Duke of Edinburgh.

There will be several public remembrances of fallen service members over the weekend, with the most poignant being that of the wreath-laying at the Cenotaph in Whitehall on Sunday. Like the past two years, Prince Charles will be laying the wreath on behalf of his mother Queen Elizabeth, 93.
