Meghan Markle sings hymns at dawn as she attends her first official service of remembrance with fiancé Harry to mark Anzac Day .

On a cool spring morning in April, Meghan Markle took part in her first official service of remembrance as she joined her fiancé, Prince Harry, at an Anzac Day Dawn Service.

Organised by the New Zealand and Australian High Commissions, the couple arrived at Wellington Arch in central London for the Service of Commemoration.

 

Meghan, 36, looked suitably sombre in a cream coat, black hat and heels, with her hair loose, as the couple sang hymns including Abide With Me.

As the sun broke over the London skyline, Harry, a former army officer who served for 10 years in the forces, laid his floral wreath at one of a group of metal crosses near Wellington Arch in central London.

A handwritten note from the prince, attached to a wreath of red roses, read: ‘For all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in pursuit of our freedom. Thank you, Harry.’

 

 

 

 

Anzac Day has been commemorated in London since the first anniversary of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli in 1916, when King George V attended a service at Westminster Abbey and more than 2,000 Australian and New Zealand troops marched through the streets.
