Prince Charles took part in a WWI remembrance ceremony at Glasnevin Cemetery

 

Britain's Prince Charles and his wife Camilla have taken part in a ceremony to unveil remembrance stones to Irish-born Victoria Cross recipients of World War I.

They were accompanied by Minister for Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs Heather Humphreys at Glasnevin Cemetery.

They attended the unveiling of Victoria Cross paving stones in memory of four Irish-born soldiers - Corporal John Cunningham, Company Sergeant Major Robert Hill Hanna, Lieutenant Frederick Maurice Watson Harvey and Private Michael James O'Rourke.

The soldiers were awarded the Victoria Cross in 1917.

Charles paused at the paving stone of Corporal Cunningham after he unveiled the memorial stone.

The Duchess of Cornwall bowed her head as she unveiled the paving stone in memory of Sergeant Major Hill Hanna.

Prince Charles and Minister Humphreys then laid wreaths at the Cross of Sacrifice
