William, second in line to the throne, will also be remembered Australians and New Zealanders who lost their lives in the conflict while attending a Thanksgiving service at Westminster Abbey, Kensington Palace said.
The two events will take place on April 25 and will take place after a service at the Wellington Arch in London. Corner of Hyde Park in which the Queen’s cousin the Duke of Gloucester will take part.
About 300-400 ex-servicemen and members of their families, members of veterans’ associations will gather at the Cenotaph to lay wreaths.
The traditional church service at the abbey will feature a speech by the Dean of Westminster, readings by the High Commissioners of New Zealand and Australia, prayers recited by children of each country, and a Maori wyat performed by London Maori Club Ngati Ranana.
In recent years, it has become customary to lay a wreath on behalf of the Queen to other family members.
The Duke of Sussex did so in 2016 and 2018, and in 2019 attended a service at the abbey with his daughter-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, a few days before the birth of his son Archie.
William celebrated Anzac Day in 2021 by sending a message to the High Commissions of New Zealand and Australia in London, saying: “Today we reflect together not only on their victims, but also on their courage, sense of duty and their known steadfastness. ».
The Duke was on a two-day trip to New Zealand in 2019 to honor the victims of the terrorist attack in Christchurch, and laid a wreath during a memorial service on Anzac Day in Auckland.
The Royal Princess attended last year’s dawn and a meeting at the abbey.
April 25 marks the anniversary of the beginning of the Gallipoli Landing in World War I and is a national day of remembrance for Australia and New Zealand.
Thousands of Anzac troops – Australian and New Zealand army corps – were killed in the ill-fated 1915 campaign in Gallipoli.
Waves of Allied troops launched a landing attack on the strategically important Turkish peninsula, which was key to controlling the Dardanelles, a crucial route to the Black Sea and Russia.
But the plan, backed by Winston Churchill, was a mistake, and the campaign, which faced heroic protection from the Turks, led to a stalemate and retreat eight months later.
His legacy is a celebration of the “spirit of Anzac” – courage, endurance, initiative, discipline and camaraderie – manifested by armies of antipodes.
