Prince Harry unveiled a plaque commemorating the wedding of his brother Prince William and Kate Middleton near Westminster Abbey after the Coronation celebration service today, a fitting ceremony for the man who served as the best man for his older brother.
The black and silver panel illustrated a scene from the royal couple’s wedding; as usual, the charming prince drew an excited crowd as he met those in the streets of London.
After the unveiling, the 28-year-old prince was handed a Coronation goblet; Prince Harry was given the goblet, made in 1953, in a box decorated with the Union Jack flag motif by youngster Alice Vickers.
He thanked the girl with a handshake as crowds gathered from across the road who cheered him on.
Westminster Abbey’s receiver general Sir Stephen Lamport said Prince Harry enjoyed the service which marked the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation.
Sir Stephen said: “He said he enjoyed the service today very much. He thought it could have been even longer.”
Prince Harry thanked those involved in organizing the Coronation anniversary celebrations.Meeting those involved in the project outside the abbey, Harry said: “Well done, you guys, for making it happen.”
