PRINCE PHILIP VISTS THE FIELD OF REMEMBRANCE OUTSIDE OF WESTMINSTER ABBEY

On November 8, 2012, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was outside of Westminster Abbey where he attended the opening of the Royal British Legion’s Field of Remembrance.  Small crosses by the hundreds bearing poppies were planted in a Field of Remembrance.  This was done as a tribute to British servicemen and women who lost their lives in conflict.  At one point, the prince wiped tears, as he was moved by the sacrifice of countless lives for the cause of freedom.  Prince Philip, who fought in World War II, looked well at this event, considering his advanced age (he turned 91 this year) and his recent health scares.  Photos by Getty Images.
