Charles and Camilla remember fallen

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will attend a remembrance service in Mumbai today.

Charles and Camilla are touring India over nine days and will commemorate those who have fallen in world wars by joining the congregation at St John the Evangelist Church.

The royal couple will meet veterans and senior members of the Indian Defence Staff after the service.

Later, in the city of Pune, the Prince and Duchess will visit the Commonwealth War Graves at the Kirkee Cemetery and attend a short act of remembrance.

Charles will also carry out a solo engagement, visiting the Serum Institute of India.

It was founded in 1966 with the aim of manufacturing life-saving immuno- biologicals which were in short supply in the Commonwealth country at the time and imported at high prices.

India is now self-sufficient in a range of vaccines from MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) to DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis).
