Harry and Meghan visited Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey, the US, to reflect on the day of commemoration in the UK and Veterans Day in the US and met with service members and their partners.
Listen to our royal podcast, the Royal Rota:
“As we honour and reflect on Remembrance Day in the UK, which shares a date with Veterans Day here in the US, my hope is for all of us to continue to support the wellbeing and recognise the value of our troops, veterans, and the entire military and service family. We and they are better for it”, Prince Harry said.
A spokesperson for the couple's Archewell foundation said former Army officer Harry and the Duchess have “committed themselves to remembering, reflecting and honouring service members, veterans, and military families from around the world”.
The couple attended the Intrepid Museum’s gala, honouring serving members and their families before going to the Joint Base McGuire’s-Dix-Lakehurst, which is the Department of Defence’s only tri-service base.
Over 46,000 members of the armed forces and their families live on the base.
The Duke and Duchess hosted a luncheon with service members from all six branches of the military.
A spokesperson for Archewell said throughout the couple's visit "they discussed mental health, the value of community and living a life of service”.
