Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex wore poppies as they visited the US Army veterans in San Diego on Wednesday evening.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined veterans at the Navy SEAL Foundation for the official opening of a new training base ahead of Remembrance Day which coincides with Veterans Day in the US.
After cutting the ribbon of the new “West Coast warrior fitness programme facility” the pair “spent the morning with veteran and active-duty service members and their loved ones at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, California”, according to the Archewell website.
Harry and Meghan were then pictured being told about Operation Bigs, a mentoring programme for children of military families.
“We’re thrilled that the Duke and Duchess are here,” Tony Duynstee, a former SEAL who spoke for the SEAL Foundation told The Times of San Diego.
“It’s quite an honour for them to be here for the commissioning.”
Separately, the Prince of Wales has spoken of how he wants to “go a step further” than his family and bring real change to the causes he supports.
Speaking to journalists on the last day of his visit to Singapore for the Earthshot Prize awards, William praised the Royal Family’s work highlighting causes but said he wanted to do more than just be a patron.
William said: “So I think the thing that ties it all together for me is about social leadership.
“That’s what I’m trying to find my way in, is I care about so many things, and previously the family have been very much spotlighting brilliantly and going round and highlighting lots – I want to go a step further – I want to actually bring change and I want to bring people to the table who can do the change if I can’t do it.”
