The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Westminster Abbey, where they were married nearly 10 years ago, to thank those involved in the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine and remember those who died.

Kate, 39, brought daffodils to lay at the abbey, while William, 38, lit a candle as they took a moment to reflect on the past year.
