Duke and Duchess of Sussex share in tune moment at Field of Remembrance

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared a sweet moment of connection during their attendance at Westminster Abbey's Field of Remembrance on Thursday.


The pair laid crosses on top of a poppy memorial before standing to attention at the ceremony yesterday.

Prince Harry and the Duchess were initially supposed to be joined by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, however she was unable to attend due to a chest infection, which Clarence House described as getting ‘progressively worse’ in a statement.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined hundreds of veterans and their families at the 91st Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey, to honour and remember those who lost their lives in service of their country. Their Royal Highnesses each planted a Cross of Remembrance, paying respect to those who have served in our Armed Forces. They were then honoured to spend time meeting with veterans and family members from all areas of the Armed forces – from those who have served in past campaigns to more recent conflicts. This is the seventh time The Duke has attended the Field of Remembrance – having previously accompanied The Duke of Edinburgh for several years. The Duchess of Sussex was grateful to be able to join her husband on this important day and to personally recognise those who have served. #remembrance #lestweforget

This comes as body language expert Blanca Cobb has claimed that the Duke and Duchess were signalling that they are distancing themselves from the public at yesterday’s event, following their recent confession that they are struggling with life in the media spotlight.

“They’re pulling into themselves. They’re still going to engage with the public, but they’re doing so at a distance,” Blanca told Cosmopolitan.

Analysing a photograph of the two of them from the day where Prince Harry can be seen turning back to Meghan behind him, Blanca added, “This picture shows a polite disconnect from the public.

“Meghan is looking down, but Harry is looking in Meghan’s direction. Meghan is the only person who is truly behind Harry, so it’s safe to say he is checking in on his wife.”

Looking at another photo of Meghan and Harry standing to attention with their hands clasped together in front of them, Blanca continued, “This is a formal event, but instead of looking straight ahead, Meghan is choosing to glance down.

“This is a way of disengaging, but it’s still very respectful toward the public. Meghan and Harry have similarities in their stances and how they’re holding their hands, so that lets us know they’re very emotionally connected to each other.”
