On the morning of Thursday, June 18, 2015, Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall arrived at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, England, to attend a service commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.
According to Clarence House His Royal Highness The Earl of Wessex and Their Royal Highnesses The Duke of Duchess of Gloucester along with:
“…[the Mayor of London] Boris Johnson and descendants of those who fought in the bloody battle, including the 9th Duke of Wellington, were among those at the service.
Guests filed in to remember the day, 200 years ago, when nearly 180,000 men from across Europe converged on the muddy battlefield at Waterloo in modern day Belgium.
On June 18 1815, Napoleon’s formidable Grande Armee clashed with Allied troops, led by the British military commander, the Duke of Wellington. Stirring extracts from accounts of the battle were read by British, French and German readers at the service today and the church bells rang after the ceremony.”
