Kate and Prince William pictured as they arrive in London for Remembrance service


KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William have arrived at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William arrived at the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday evening. The royal pair were snapped by photographers as they were greeted on their entrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appeared to arrive separately to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The Queen was joined by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, who earlier this week had to pull out of events because of a chest infection.

Camilla was “ordered by her doctor” to cancel two of her scheduled engagements earlier this week, Clarence House said.

A spokeswoman confirmed to Express.co.uk on Thursday that the Duchess of Cornwall was suffering from a chest infection, which had worsened earlier this week.

She said: “The Duchess of Cornwall has been told by her doctor to cancel her engagements owing to a chest infection which has got progressively worse over the last few days.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat with the Queen in the royal box.

The event in the capital is the first time the Sussexes and Cambridges have appeared in public together since Harry and Meghan opened up about their struggles in an emotional television documentary.

In the powerful documentary, Prince Harry explained how he and his brother, Prince William, were on “different paths”.

Harry said he and William have “good days” and “bad days” in their relationship.

The Royal Family’s attendance at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance comes every year.

The service at the Royal Albert Hall was also attended by the Duke of York, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.

The event commemorates the 75th anniversaries of the great battles of 1944 and the collaboration and friendship of the British, Commonwealth and Allied armies who fought them.

The festival will also mark the 100-year anniversary of GCHQ and the role of the secret services.

The event aims to pay tribute to the men and women from different nations, cultures, religions and communities who came together and stood shoulder to shoulder to defend Britain’s freedom.

The Legion’s festival takes place every year on November 9.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex honoured the nation’s war dead during a poignant ceremony in the grounds of Westminster Abbey earlier this week.

Harry and Meghan paid their respects to servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in conflicts across the decades by planting tiny crosses in the Field of Remembrance.

From just two crosses, laid during the first event at the Abbey in November 1928, the Field of Remembrance is now covered with around 70,000 symbols in more than 360 plots for regimental and other associations.

During the poignant ceremony, the duke and duchess, surrounded by elderly soldiers, recent veterans and others associated with the armed forces, stood still as the Last Post was played by a bugler.
