King Charles and Queen Camilla have hosted D-Day veterans at Buckingham Palace.

The visit of the four D-Day veterans was filmed for a BBC documentary marking the 80th anniversary of the landings.

John Dennett, 99, Arthur Oborne, 100, Bernard Morgan, 100, and Jim Miller, 100, brought mementoes to show the King and Queen. King Charles read from a diary extract written by his grandfather, King George VI.

Queen Camilla asked Bernard Morgen about his recollections of the day itself. He said, “When we came off the landing ship tank down on the beach, the Army were collecting the poor soldiers who drowned on the initial landing.”

The King shared a photo of his grandfather in Normandy, taken a few days after the landing. He said, “He got very frustrated because they wouldn’t let him go until several days later.”
