Poignant poppy from Duchess

The Duchess of Cambridge plants poppies at the Tower of London in a tribute the fallen from the British and the Commonwealth from the First World War.

She was joined by her husband, Prince William, and Prince Harry as each planted a ceramic version of the red flower as part of th Blood Swept Lands And Seas Of Red, in the moat. There are about 120,000 poppies, but more will be added over the coming months until there are 888,246 on Armistice Day, November 11, one for each British and Colonial death during the war.
