“The National Day of Mourning will this year focus on the German-British friendship, which has grown in the 75 years since the end of the Second World War,” Charles’ Clarence House office said in a statement.

“The event pays tribute to the Allied commitment to the liberation from Nazi occupation and to the reconstruction, re-democratisation and subsequent reunification of Germany. It remembers all victims of war and tyranny.”
