What a special day

The royal family paid special tribute to the men and women who fought in the D-Day landings 75 years ago on Thursday. It was an emotional day for many, with Prince William, Prince Harry, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall representing the Queen as they each paid their respects to those who bravely fought and those that lost their lives during the Allied invasion of France.

Charles paid his respects in Normandy

Prince Charles was accompanied by Camilla to a number of events around Normandy on Thursday to mark the anniversary, including a memorial service in Bayeux Cemetery in Bayeux, France. Speaking of the importance of memorial services to honour our heroes, Charles told the BBC: “I remember the last time we were there, I will never forget the determination that they still exude by being there. Being at the cemeteries and being at the commemorations. They always remember their comrades and their friends and the people they had to leave behind. This country lost countless special people and we owe it to them and their families to go on commemorating this.”
