Prince William and his wife Kate attended the ceremony held in Belgium last month. The ceremony indeed paid tribute to the massive casualties suffered by Great Britain and Belgium during the World War I.
“Members of our families, our regiments, and our nations, all sacrificed everything for the lives we live today. During the First World War, Great Britain and Belgium stood shoulder to shoulder. Now, one hundred years on, we still stand together firmly, gathering as so many do every night, in remembrance of that big sacrifice”.
At the ceremony, the Menin Gate is covered with the names of over 54,000 Britishers who died. They have no known grave, according to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Two hundred descendants whose ancestors are named on the Menin Gate were also in attendance at the ceremony.
