The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a trip to Belgium on Monday to take part in a slew of engagements to honor the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I. Kate Middleton and Prince William's first stop was at Le Memorial Interallie in Liege, Belgium, where they were greeted by Belgium's Queen Mathilde (whom Kate curtsied to) and King Philippe and later chatted with French President Francois Hollande. The couple have a busy day in Belgium as they will also attend a lunch and reception at Mons Town Hall and stop by a commemoration event at Saint Symphorien Military Cemetery. William spoke at Le Memorial Inerallie, where he commended the Belgium people's resistance to the German invasion a century ago: "The people of Belgium's people were gallant and courageously resisted. Your great sacrifice and contribution to eventual victory was critical. Belgium's commitment to honor the war dead continues to this day."
The royal family had a busy schedule on Monday to honor the important WWI anniversary. Prince Harry stopped by Kent to lay a poppy wreath and remember the area's soldiers that fought in war. Meanwhile, Prince Charles attended to his duties in Glasgow, where he made a special appearance alongside Prime Minister David Cameron. Although Kate and Will were separated from Harry for this occasion, they will reunite on Tuesday when the young royals will visit the Tower of London's "Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red" poppy installation in the Tower's moat. The three were all together last week when they got in on the fun of the Commonwealth Games, including photobombing athletes and Kate showing off her world-famous expressions.
