The Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid a quiet visit to the Los Angeles National Cemetery on Remembrance Sunday.

Prince Harry, who served as Captain Wales in the British Army for 10 years, was joined by his wife Meghan to pay tribute to those who sacrificed themselves.

The former royals were seen wearing commemorative poppies as they laid bouquets of flowers, which Meghan had picked from their Montecito garden, on the resting places of two Commonwealth soldiers.

Harry and Meghan also left a wreath at an obelisk in the cemetery, with a plaque that reads: “In Memory of the Men Who Offered Their Lives in Defence of Their Country.”

Harry left a touching message along with the beautiful wreath: "To all of those who have served, and are serving. Thank you."

Prince Harry had requested a wreath to be laid in his name at London’s Cenotaph war memorial during Sunday’s socially distanced ceremony, which was attended by the queen, Prince Charles, Prince William, and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

His request was reportedly denied "on the grounds that he is no longer representing the monarchy", The Sunday Times reports.
