Prince pinned a scarlet poppy on his jacket lapel, but was not in uniform and without medals.
While Remembrance Day was celebrated in the UK and the entire royal family, including King Charles and Prince William with Kate Middleton, took part in the events, Prince Harry paid tribute to the memory alone and very far from the family. He went to Hawaii without Meghan Markle. The Daily Mail writes about this.
The Duke of Sussex held a Resurrection of Remembrance at Pearl Harbor, where he was accidentally photographed by a fan.
Harry was in a regular suit, the lapel of which he decorated with the traditional scarlet poppy, but he did not put on his medals and military uniform.
In Hawaii, Prince Harry visited the USS Arizona memorial in Honolulu. He was without Meghan Markle and his children: Archie and Lilibet. The Aircraft Carrier Memorial is a concrete observation platform built over an aircraft carrier that sank in 1941.
Harry served in the army for ten years and visited Afghanistan twice. He also organized the Invictus Games for wounded servicemen and military veterans, which have been taking place since 2014.
However, he is no longer allowed to wear his military uniform after he left the royal family, but he is still allowed to wear the received them medals.
After stepping down from royal duties in January 2020, Prince Harry was forced to celebrate Remembrance Day on his own.
In 2020, Harry and Meghan “commemorated” Remembrance Day in person by visiting Los Angeles National Cemetery to pay their respects fallen Commonwealth soldiers, and last year they made a surprise visit to a military base in New Jersey.
But the couple has come under fire for arranging with a photographer in 2020 to capture their personal act of remembrance, and “his private moment” was widely promoted.
At the time, Harry was said to be upset that he was denied permission to lay a wreath at the Cenotaph on his behalf because he was no longer an active member of the royal families.
The Japanese attack began at about 8 am, resulting in thousands of American deaths, numerous injuries, four battleships were sunk, and four more were damaged.
Hundreds of marines and sailors went down with their ships , others died in the fires.
On the aircraft carrier “Arizona” 1177 crew members died out of 1512.
