Harry and Meghan were due to have been joined by the Duchess of Cornwall, who is patron of The Poppy Factory in South West London where remembrance poppies are made. Now, the Duchess of Sussex is determined to prevent that from happeninjg again.

Numerous families they leave behind gathered each week at the Broom Farm community Centre in the centre of the army estate.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex dropped in on a parent and toddler coffee morning in their home town and spoke about how they would miss Archie if they had to spend long periods overseas without him.

Prince Harry said he was "in awe" of the families who get on with their lives while their military partners are away for so long. The group meets on a weekly basis and the couple surprised everyone and discussed their baby son Archie's development with other parents.

"My daughter Aeris is the same age as Archie and we talked about weaning and the children beginning to crawl - she's just a normal mum and it was like talking to a friend", said Amy.

From just two crosses, laid during the first event at the Abbey in November 1928, the Field of Remembrance is now covered with around 70,000 symbols in more than 360 plots for regimental and other associations.

The Sussexes will be making a number of public appearances over the coming days before they prepare to take a six week break from their royal duties, during which time they will head to Los Angeles to spend Thanksgiving with Meghan's mother Doria Ragland.

The prince has represented the Royal Family at the annual event since 2013, but it is the first time that his wife has joined him.

Leigh Smith said: "We had a party when Harry and Meghan got married and we've followed their story ever since".

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry showed how perfectly in tune they are today as the couple paid to tribute to Britain's war dead.

"And, also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I'm OK".
