Hello everyone ! Today was Anzac Day, a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”. For the occasion, Meghan joined her fiancé Prince Harry at a Dawn Service at Wellington Arch. Later in the day, they were joined by Prince William for a service of commemoration and thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey. I’ve added lots of pictures in the gallery.
