Commemoration Day in London

12 Jul 2005

As the crowd looked on, Queen Elizabeth said "[i]t does not surprise me that during the present difficult days for London, people turn to the example set by that generation, of resilience, humour, sustained courage, often under conditions of great deprivation.... That example, and those memories, should be kept alive by younger generations as they in turn strive to keep the peace in our troubled world." She was joined by Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry as the crowd of 250,000 people looked on from the Mall. In New Zealand, Prince William laid a wreath in memory of those of the Commonwealth nation who sacrificed for Britain.
