Prince William performed in France

The day before, dozens of world political leaders gathered in France to honor the memory of the dead and mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day, the successful landing of the troops on the coast of Normandy, then occupied by Nazi Germany. The King was supposed to arrive from the UK on that day, but due to cancer treatment, he was replaced by Crown Prince William, for whom this role has become "most high-profile"

Ukraine was represented by Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who stood alongside 7 other presidents, prime ministers, and kings. According to the Daily Mail, the Ukrainian leader was greeted with the loudest applause. However, William received a standing ovation too.

He was the center of attention, but he was able to conduct the ceremonies with dignity. According to journalists, the prince was "majestic and regal" but at the same time "warm and friendly" with the veterans. He personally spoke to the heroes, laid a wreath at the memorial, and even spoke French.

"I am honored to join you to honor the bravery and sacrifice of the Canadian troops who gave so much 80 years ago. Far from home, they stormed these very sand dunes behind me, side by side with thousands of British soldiers. Standing here today in the peaceful silence, it is almost impossible to comprehend the courage it must have taken to throw themselves into the fury of battle that day," William said.
