You won’t be surprised to learn that Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry were absolutely roasted by the press (and Daily Mail readers) when they opted to honour Remembrance Sunday with a visit to the Los Angeles National Cemetery to pay tribute to the veterans who sacrificed themselves for the freedom of others.
Most likened this to a “Hollywood photoshoot” saying that the event lost all its meaning and was all about them, which is why I said in the Beckham Remembrance Sunday post, that you are damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.
I felt they were very respectful. Both wore face masks to the cemetery, only removing them when they were alone
He wore a navy suit with both a poppy and a number of medals, including his Queen’s Golden Jubilee medal, 2002, his 2008 Afghanistan Operational Service medal and his Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal from 2012.
Meghan opted to covered up wearing a Brandon Maxwell black belted coat accented with a poppy, which she styled with Jennifer Chamandi Lorenzo pumps, a Cartier watch and jewels plus a sleek leather clutch.
Honestly, I don’t quite get what the fuss is about.
They have as much right to pay their respects as anyone, especially Prince Harry who, aside from the Queen, has done more for the British military than any other royal.
Slight none fashion-related rant, so excuse me on this one occasion.
