Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Remembrance Day commemorated him in a way that fits his new life away from the rest of the Royal Family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex marked Remembrance Day on their agenda by visiting the Los Angeles National Cemetery.
The couple said they wanted to “personally acknowledge” the day in their own way. However, the British press stressed that not everyone is happy with the tribute that the Sussexes made.

Meghan and Harry deposited flowers collected from their garden on the graves of two Commonwealth soldiers, one from the Australian Air Force and one from the Canadian Artillery.
“To all who have served, they are serving. Thank you.” The duke said that he also laid a wreath of flowers.
Royal commentator Dan Wootton also criticized Meghan and Harry during the visit.
“How lucky that a photographer was here to capture this deeply personal moment.” He said in a Twitter post.
Harry, who spent 10 years in the military, described Remembrance Day as “a time of respect and hope.”
“The act of remembering is a profound act of honor. “This is how we preserve the legacies of entire generations and show our gratitude for the sacrifices they made so that we can live the life we live today.” Said the queen’s grandson.
