D-Day landings: The Queen and President Obama pay tribute

by hellomagazine.com The Queen was a girl during the D-Day landings when so many people laid down their lives for freedom. On Friday, the emotion was written on her bearing as the royal matriarch paid tribute to those who fell on the beaches of Normany 70 years ago. Surrounded by war graves in Bayeux, the first town to be liberated from the Nazis, she bowed her head in silent reflection after laying a wreath in honour of the war dead. Ten miles away President Obama made his own act of remembrance at the American War Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer where almost 10,000 US troops lie.
