The couples arrived to the event in South Kensington in short succession of one another, as is custom in order of of who is next in line to the throne.

This is the first time the couples have been seen together since Harry and Meghan addressed the pressures of being in the public eye. 

During an interview for an ITV documentary on South Africa, Meghan admitted feeling vulnerable during her pregnancy and thanked Mr Bradby for asking about how she was feeling.

‘Thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m OK, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes,’ she said.

Harry, meanwhile, spoke candidly about the pressures of being a member of the Royal Family in the spotlight.

When asked by Mr Bradby if he has yet ‘found peace’, Harry said the grief of his mother’s death still remains, describing it as ‘a wound that festers’.

The ceremony is hosted by the Royal British Legion and commemorates all those who lost their lives in conflicts, with artists including James Blunt, Leona Lewis and Jeff Goldblum performing alongside the Central Band of the Royal Air Force and Band of HM Royal Marines. 

This year’s event marks 75 years since notable battles of 1944, which included Monte Cassino, Kohima and Imphal, D-Day and the collaboration of Commonwealth and Allied forces.
