On November 10, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle attended the 2021 Salute to Freedom Gala in New York, by People magazine. The appearance of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex came just as the United States was preparing to celebrate Veterans Day and Remembrance Day in the United Kingdom. Harry wore a dark suit and had his own military medals pinned to his jacket while Meghan wore a stunning red dress. The couple also both wore a red poppy pinned to their ensembles, a symbol used to commemorate service personnel who died in war.
At the event, Harry opened up about his own experience in the British Army, revealing that he credits this period of his life for helping him become the man he is today. “My experience in the military made me who I am today, and I will always be grateful to the people I have served with, wherever we are in the world,” said the royal. âBut in war you also see and experience things that you hope no one else gets to see,â he continued. “These stay with us, sometimes like a slideshow of pictures.” For her part, Meghan was there to support her husband and even pounced on Harry, saying that she was “always proud of him”.
The couple’s rare red carpet appearance delighted fans and served a good cause by seeking to honor those who have served over the years.
