Members of The Royal Family attend events to mark ANZAC Day, 2019


On ANZAC Day, members of The Royal Family are honouring the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

ANZAC Day is a moment to recognise the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who died during the landings, and to honour the sacrifices of men and women in all wars.

The day commemorates the anniversary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli in 1915, this picture shows ANZAC beach in Gallipoli in that year:
