ANZAC Day Service at Westminster Abbey

The Duchess of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex, along with the Duke of Gloucester, attended the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey on April 25th.  Anzac Day has been commemorated in London since the first anniversary of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli in 1916, when King George V attended a service at Westminster Abbey and more than 2,000 Australian and New Zealand troops marched through the streets, becoming an important moment to recognise the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who died during the D-Day landings, and to honour the sacrifices of men and women in all wars. Anzac Day is commemorated as a public holiday in both countries with memorial ceremonies held at various locations. The Duke of Cambridge is attending commemorations in New Zealand.

  1. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks|
