DURING the service at Westminster Abbey’s Field of Remembrance, the Duchess of Sussex, 38, can been seen to shuffle closer to her husband after receiving a subtle nod from him as the couple pay tribute to Britain’s war dead.
The fleeting moment shows how perfectly in tune they are. A sweet moment of connection during their attendance at Westminster Abbey’s Field of Remembrance yesterday (Thursday).
The display of solidarity and support came before they both laid wooden crosses among a bed of red poppies, honouring those who sacrificed their lives in conflict for the sake of the nation.
The Duke of Sussex wore his Household Division ceremonial uniform of a black frock today, while Meghan was dressed in a stylish navy winter coat, a Philip Treacy netted hat and black leather heeled boots.
Harry has represented the royal family at the annual event since 2013, but today is the first time that has wife has joined him.

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
From just two crosses, laid during the first event at the Abbey in November 1928, the Field of Remembrance is now covered with around 70,000 symbols in more than 360 plots for regimental and other associations.
