In an act of tribute to fallen US soldiers and marines, both President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were scheduled to attend a ceremony at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in Belleau, around 85km east of Paris.

Instead, he sent a delegation led by his Chief of Staff John Kelly, who is also a retired general.
Meanwhile, 350km away, Prince Harry was also due to pay his respects at a special Armistice Day rugby game at London’s Twickenham Stadium. And it was raining, quite heavily too.
Walking onto the pitch to lay a wreath which commemorated 100 years since the Armistice in 1918, Prince Harry walked onto the field without an umbrella and as a result, he got wet.
But he still did it.
