Prince Harry led tributes and remembrances at a service in honour of all those who have lost their lives while serving with the Metropolitan Police. The prince attended a service at Hendon Training School in Middlesex on October 20th 2016 where he paid his tributes by laying a wreath and bowing his head in remembrance.

Prince Harry was welcomed to Hendon by Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, was also there.

The ceremony in remembrance of the 650 officers who have died while serving with the Met was simple and heartfelt and on a cool and breezy October day, Prince Harry stepped forward to place a wreath of white and yellow flowers at the memorial and bow his head to remember.

The prince also met each of the family members of lost officers who had come to pay their respects and remember their loved ones. Prince Harry regularly attends this annual service of remembrance which clearly means a great deal to him.
