Looking sombre, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, continued their commemoration of World War I by unveiling an art installation at the Tower of London.

Joined by Prince Harry, the royals walked, heads bowed slightly, among a sea of ceramic poppies which poured out of the Tower into the moat below to symbolise the hundreds of thousands of lives lost in the conflict.

Entitled Blood Swept Lands And Seas of Red, the exhibition will eventually be made up of 888,246 flowers representing the British and Commonwealth service personnel who died during the war. There are currently 120,000 in place.Click link for full post from HELLO Magazine.
