The Duke of Cambridge and Taoiseach Enda Kenny have attended a joint UK and Irish service to mark the centenary of the Battle of Messines Ridge.
They laid wreaths at the foot of the Round Tower memorial in Flanders to commemorate the first day of the week-long battle, which took place in June 1917.
It was the first time was that the 36th Ulster and 16th Irish Divisions had fought together in the First World War.
Relatives of those who died in battle were among the hundreds of people who attended the ceremony at the Island of Ireland Peace Park on Wednesday.
William and Mr Kenny were joined by Princess Astrid of Belgium and Lord Dunlop, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the NI Office, as well as local politicians.
As part of the commemoration, the Duke of Cambridge and Taoiseach will also visit nearby Wytschaete Cemetery, where many of those who died now rest.
