Today, (October 31, 2018) The Duchess of Cambridge visited The Imperial War Museum. The Duchess visited the museum in London ahead of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice to learn about the lives of her great grandmother’s three brothers, who fought and lost their lives in the First World War. Catherine toured the First World War galleries and learned more about what her relatives would have experienced during their time on the front line. She also was shown her great-grandmother Olive’s registration card. Olive and her younger sister Anne were both VAD nurses with the British Red Cross during the War. The Duchess also viewed several other documents relating to her relatives’ experiences, including the brothers’ letters home.
