Prince Harry and Meghan Markle surprised their neighbours by attending a coffee morning for military families on Wednesday.

This morning, the couple shared sweet photos and videos of their visit on Instagram ahead of Remembrance Day on November 11 – which honours the sacrifice of those who fought in World War I.

They captioned the post: “Yesterday, The Duke and Duchess surprised their neighbours in Windsor at a coffee morning for military families in a community centre located in the heart of the Army housing estate.”

“Every year during the month of November we pause to remember and honour all those who have served their country here in the UK, across the Commonwealth and around the world.”

“Their Royal Highnesses also wanted to show support for the families of service personnel who are currently deployed overseas.”

The post continued: “As we lead up to Remembrance Sunday, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will join Her Majesty The Queen and other Members of the Royal Family at various commemoration events, including the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall and the Cenotaph.”

“During the visit yesterday, Their Royal Highnesses met with young families who shared their experiences as parents and as couples who are often apart from their loved ones for months at a time.”

“A reminder that a life of service does not simply describe the person wearing the uniform, but the entire family. #Remembrance #Lestweforget,” they added.

On Saturday, November 9, Meghan and Harry will join members of the Royal family, including the Queen, at the Royal Albert Hall to attend the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance.

Then on Sunday, November 10, known as Remembrance Sunday, the family will visit The Cenotaph, the war memorial in London, to pay their respects.
