Prince Harry and the Duke of Edinburgh

Prince Harry joined the Duke of Edinburgh on his annual visit to Westminster Abbey's Field of Remembrance.

The field remembers those killed during the First and Second World Wars.

The prince and his grandfather each laid a Cross of Remembrance in front of two wooden crosses from the graves of unknown British soldiers.

The Last Post was played followed by a two-minute silence, before the royals then met with war veterans.
