He added the purpose of the service was to "honour the fallen of all nations" involved in the war.
In her message printed in the official programme, Mrs May paid tribute to the "courage, bravery and skill" of troops who fought at Amiens.
She added it was important to "reflect on the fear and hardship experienced by the people of this city and the surrounding battlefields".
My view: Prince William is growing into real statesman, he looked very dignified and presidential, William is sincere and he'll make an excellent King, he behaves more like her Majesty the Queen. Same goes for Prince Harry, he's also a real statesman, he behaves well in public when he's not with his attention and camera-seeking wife Meghan Markle. So how come the French president Emmanuel Macron didn't attend the service? so childish of him.
