The couple celebrated the occasion from the United States, hours after much of the British royal family gathered in central London for the annual service at the Cenotaph War Memorial.

Commemorative Sunday, closest to 11 November, is the day Britain pays tribute to those who lost their lives in the war.

The couple placed flowers the Duchess picked from her garden on the graves of two Commonwealth soldiers, one of whom served with the Royal Australian Air Force and one with the Royal Canadian Artillery, a spokesman for the couple said.

Both Harry and Meghan wore poppies, a symbol of remembrance in Britain and much of the Commonwealth, while Harry also wore military medals on his suit.

Meghan and Harry, who had spent 10 years in the armed forces and made two tours of Afghanistan, wanted to be able to personally recognize the Memorial Day in their own way, their spokesman added.

The Duke and Duchess also placed a wreath on an obelisk in the cemetery that reads “In memory of the men who sacrificed their lives in defense of their country”.

The Duke signed a note with the wreath: “All who have served and are serving. Thank you.”

Harry also gave an interview on the shared military community’s podcast and said, “Even when we can’t be together, we remember together.”

The couple removed their face masks when alone or at some distance from others, the spokesman added.

Earlier this week, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II wore a face mask for the first time when she appeared in public at a commemoration ceremony ahead of Memorial Sunday during the pandemic.

Meanwhile, Harry’s family, including his father, Prince Charles, and his brother, Prince William, laid wreaths on the cenotaph in London on Sunday. The event was scaled back due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The socially distant event was preceded by a two-minute silence, which the Queen observed from the balcony of the Foreign Office.
