Fans of the more observant royals will have noticed that the British these days usually wear a small flower on their lapel.

The flower is actually a red poppy, or ed poppy and is a symbol with which they remember those who died in the First World War, also remembered as the great war and has its origin in the poem 'In the fields of Flanders' by John Mc Cae:

“From our inert hands we throw the torch at you;

it's your job to keep it up.

If you betray us who lost our lives, we will never rest

although the poppies grow in the fields of Flanders”.

The French fields were plagued with poppies where thousands of Britons died during the First World War.

Not only royalty wears this symbol: many people carry this poppy on their chest, from the end of October to November 11,

The most sympathetic note to these dramatic celebrations was put yesterday by a veteran on the verge of turning one hundred years whom Meghan Markle approached to hug him. According to witnesses, she left a little makeup on her uniform and on the poppy on her lapel.

The old soldier reacted happily and they heard him assure that he will not wash those clothes again to keep alive the memory of such a royal encounter.
