Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended the Anzac Day dawn service at Hyde Park Corner in London. The dawn service was held at Wellington Arch and began at the New Zealand Memorial.
Meghan pinned a poppy flower on her lapel as the flower denotes reverence for the sacrifice of those who died serving their country. She was also seen wearing a gray double-breasted coat, black dress, black clutch and large brimmed black hat as well as black heels. It’s been confirmed that Meghan wore the Pagoda trench jacket from the brand Smythe and also her Sarah Flint Jay pumps.
Anzac day is commemorated at dawn in London since the Anzac landings at Gallipoli in 1916 as a way to recognize the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who died during the landings. It is also commemorated as a holiday in Australia and New Zealand.
Prince Harry and Meghan were joined by the Australian High Commissioners for the walk to the Australian memorial where Prince Harry signed a book of remembrance. The 45 minute service incorporated readings, the Last Post, silence Reveille and national anthems.
Prince Harry laid a wreath on behalf of the Queen. He will also reportedly attend a parade with around 400 people expected to participate including veterans and family members. As Prince Harry spent a decade serving the British Armed forces–he is keen to spend time honoring veteran support charities.
This is the 102nd Anzac Day held in London.
Prince Harry and Meghan will also attend the Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey later in the day around noon.
