This morning [Nov 14], Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Gloucester attended a Wreath-Laying ceremony in St George’s, which was followed by a Remembrance Ceremony at St Peter’s Church. Local dignitaries in attendance included Premier Paula Cox, St George’s Mayor Kenny Bascome, Opposition Leader Kim.Swan as well as some of Bermuda’s war vets.
After the Church Service, she alongside Governor Sir Richard Gozney and others, visted St Peter’s graveyard to pay their respects to Governor Sir Richard Sharples, and Captain Hugh Sayers, the Governor’s Aide-de-Camp. Both men had been shot and killed in the grounds of Government House in March 1973.
During her trip to Bermuda, which ends today, she met with some of the Bermuda Football Association’s National Academy players and local football legend Clyde Best at the BFA Field in Prospect, planted a tree at Warwick Camp, presented the Bermuda Regiment with new Colours during a ceremony at the National Sports Center, went on a water tour with the Bermuda Regiment boat troop and more.
