Watch: Prince William to open new remembrance centre

The Duke of Cambridge is to meet veterans of all three armed services at the official opening of a new remembrance centre at the National Memorial Arboretum.

Prince William will also meet volunteers and schoolchildren at the 150-acre arboretum, which is run by the Royal British Legion.

The royal visit on Wednesday follows a nine-year fundraising campaign to upgrade facilities for visitors to the site in Alrewas in Staffordshire. Hannah Bechelet got a preview yesterday ahead of the Prince's visit.
