The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall marked the centenary of the burial of the Unknown Warrior at a special service in the Abbey on November 11th, a few days after the annual Remembrance Sunday Ceremony at the Cenotaph. The Prince laid a wreath and gave a reading from John 15: 12-17 “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” King George V received the body of the Unknown Warrior at the Cenotaph on this day 100 years ago, before following the gun carriage on foot to Westminster Abbey as Chief Mourner.

One thought on “Unknown Warrior Centenary Service at Westminster Abbey

  1. I’m so glad to see that every effort was made to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the tomb of the unknown soldier. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in London and the Earl and Countess of Wessex in Stafford made sure that the promise to “always remember them” was kept. The Duchess of Cornwall’s mask was lovely and so appropriate. Thank you to all the soldiers who have helped keep us safe in the past and to those who are keeping us safe today!
