Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Just Posted a Heartfelt Tribute to the Armed Forces in Honor of the D-Day Anniversary

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle honored the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy today by posting a touching tribute to retired and active servicemen and women on their Instagram account.

On Thursday, which also happens to be one month since baby Archie's birth, the Sussexes shared several images of Prince Harry dressed in military garb as he greeted veterans and pensioners at the Founder's Day celebrations at the Royal Hospital in London. (Click through the Instagram slideshow above to see them all.)

The @Sussexroyal account captioned the post, "Today’s visit also coincides with the 75th anniversary of D-Day. It was especially poignant for The Duke, who served in the British Army for ten years, to visit with and honour six veterans of the Normandy Landing living at the hospital."

The 34-year-old duke gave a touching speech at the event, honoring the veterans and their families (and, of course, threw in some dad jokes). The speech comes one day after his gran Queen Elizabeth gave a moving speech for D-Day in which she quoted her father, King George VI.

The post's caption also mentioned Markle specifically, calling out her title and support of the members of the military on this historic day.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are proud to support serving and former members of the Armed Forces... Thank you for your service, and for the sacrifices you and your families have made. #DDay75."

Yep, she may be enjoying her time hangin' with Archie and out of the spotlight, but Markle's still all over our Insta feeds. (But, like, if the duchess wanted to post a new pic of Archie for his 1-month mark, we wouldn't be mad…just sayin'.)
