Prince Harry carries out a reading at the Iraq & Afghanistan Memorial

HRH Prince Harry reads at the Iraq and Afghanistan Memorial service [9 March 2017] which has been held in London’s Horse Guards Parade.

It was attended by many members of the Royal Family yesterday and is a dedication to military and civilian personnel who served over the past 25 years.

His Royal Highness read from the book of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 at the service which was followed by an unveiling of the memorial in Victoria Embankment Gardens by The Queen and a reception for around 2,000 military and civilian personnel, their families and the charities which support the.

Prince Harry has undertaken two tours of Afghanistan in 2007 and 2012.

Among the many skills and abilities His Royal Highness possesses is being an excellent reader! Not a surprise, of course, but gratifying (as someone who very much enjoys reading Scripture lessons as part of my ecclesiastical duties) to see and hear, nonetheless.
