The Duke and Duchess of Sussex swap the glamor of the red carpet for a surprise visit to a military base



Since leaving the British Royal Family, Prince Harry and Meghan have become two more stars in the Hollywood firmament. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived and triumphed at the gala Salute to Freedom, which took place at the Intrepid Museum in New York. She, with a sensual red Carolina Herrera dress with deep V-neckline and he, in a tuxedo, proudly wearing some of his military decorations achieved during his time in the Army. Because even though Harry was stripped of his military titles, he wanted to make it clear that serving in the military for ten years made him the man he is today. While living their “American dream”, in the words of the Prince, the couple continues to honor the military on the eve of Remembrance Sunday, an appointment that is celebrated in the United Kingdom this Sunday and that is one of the most important of the calendar of Isabel II. Far from corsets, they continue with their own agenda and that is why after their stellar appearance, the couple made a surprise visit to a military base in New Jersey where they spoke with the soldiers and their spouses about mental health.

A day after the evening in the Big Apple, Harry and Meghan participated in a meal with the personnel of the joint base MCGuire-Dix-Lakerhurst, where they once again wore a poppy-shaped brooch on their lapels, which serves to pay tribute to the military killed in times of war. Prince Harry knows first-hand what military life is like having served for a decade and was deployed to Afghanistan twice. Being away from home and the need to support veterans were some of the topics discussed. “My experience in the military made me who I am today, I will always be grateful to the people with whom I can serve, wherever in the world we are,” he said. “But in war you also see and experience things that you hope no one else has to see. That stays with us, sometimes as an image slideshow. “

For this visit, the Duchess wore a black Giorgio Armani double-breasted dress and high-heeled shoes from the same firm. A spokesperson for the couple, according to Hello! -the British version of HELLO! – said the Dukes “They are committed to remembering, reflecting on and honoring service members, veterans and military families around the world.” The New Jersey military base is the only one that has three Defense Department services and is home to more than 46,000 troops and their families. Members of the six branches of the army participated in the meeting.

Last year, the couple celebrated this significant day alone at the Los Angeles National Cemetery, where they deposited a floral wreath on military graves. The year before, in 2019, when he was still a full-time member of the Royal Family, Harry attended a ceremony at the Cenotaph in London, as is tradition. This Sunday his grandmother will preside over that ceremony despite having been resting for several weeks of their institutional duties. Both the gala and the surprise visit to the military base mark the second trip by the Dukes of Sussex to the US East Coast after visiting the UN in September. Parallel, Meghan has apologized to the London Court of Appeal for forgetting that he told his assistant to pass information to the authors of the book Finding Freedom. Previously, she and her husband had insisted that they did not cooperate with the writers.
