Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared a photo of themselves attending a military service in The Hague in April to mark Remembrance weekend – as the Duke was spotted solo at Pearl Harbor wearing a poppy.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared the previously unseen photograph from their visit to the Invictus Games in the Hague in April on their official Archewell website. While it is not clear which event they were attending, it appears to be a ceremony which took place on the first day of the event.

The image was released as Prince Harry surprised onlookers with the trip to the USS Arizona Memorial in Honolulu. He cut a relaxed figure with an unbuttoned top collar and a casual blue suit, with a poppy pinned to his lapel.

The royal, who was without his wife Meghan Markle, 41, and their children Archie and Lilibet, spent time talking to the families who were also visiting the memorial on that day.

Photographs of his visit were later shared online by royal fans, who commented it ‘looked like the Duke was there for Veteran’s Day’.

Harry served in the military for a decade and had two tours of Afghanistan. He has also organised the Invictus Games for wounded and injured service members and veterans since 2014.

He is no longer permitted to wear military dress, however, after being stripped of the right when he left the Royal Family, but is still permitted to wear the medals he earned – although he wasn’t wearing them for this outing.

Since quitting royal duties in January 2020, Prince Harry has been left to mark Remembrance Day independently.

In 2020, the couple who are now based in California following Megxit, ‘personally recognised’ Remembrance Day by visiting the Los Angeles National cemetery to pay their respects to fallen Commonwealth soldiers, while last year they made a surprise visit to a New Jersey military base.

But the pair came under fire for arranging for a photographer to capture their personal act of Remembrance in 2020, being criticised for enlisting Lee Morgan to release pictures from the moment.

At the time, Harry was said to be upset that he’d been refused permission for a wreath to be laid at the Cenotaph on his behalf because he was no longer a working royal.
