While it was previously announced that the royal mum-of-three would be attending Thursday's service to honour fallen Australian and New Zealand veterans during the annual Anzac Day service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey, it was a surprise to see Harry join her. The Duke of Sussex is currently awaiting the arrival of his first child with wife Meghan Markle.
Harry was believed to have wanted to participate in the service, however, precautions were put in place in case the baby arrived, a source told People.
Harry is “pleased he can attend today’s service, as planned,” the source told the publication. “With their baby due, his name was not printed in the program in case he was unable to do so.”
Prince William is currently in New Zealand, attending services for the day of remembrance.
