Harry and Meghan were both somber and serious at the event. Harry wore his military ribbons and medals pinned to his coat. Meghan wore a black felt hat, a Gucci suede bag, a grey Smythe Pagoda trench coat from their Fall 2018 collection, and Sarah Flint black suede pumps.

In one video from the event, Harry even appears to be tearing up:

The anniversary has been celebrated in London every April 25 since 1916, which marks the start of the First World War Gallipoli landings. The soon-to-be-royal-couple started the day with a special dawn service in Hyde Park where they visited the Australian memorial and signed a book of remembrance. Later they'll head to Westminster Abbey.
