Remembrance Sunday looked quite different this year for the royal family. And although Meghan Markle and Prince Harry couldn’t celebrate with their loved ones in the United Kingdom, they made sure to honor the holiday privately in Los Angeles.
Over the weekend, while Queen Elizabeth and the working members of the royal family gathered at the Cenotaph in London to pay tribute to late British troops, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid a visit to the Los Angeles National Cemetery.
“It was important to the Duke and Duchess to be able to personally recognize Remembrance in their own way, to pay tribute to those who have served and to those who gave their lives,” a source said per Town & Country.
During the event, the duke and duchess each laid flowers (picked by Markle from their personal garden) and wreaths on the graves of two commonwealth soldiers—one who served in the Royal Australian Air Force and another who served in the Royal Canadian Artillery.
