WW1 commemorations: Royals 'plant' poppies at Tower of London

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have "planted" ceramic poppies at the Tower of London to mark the centenary of World War One.

The Blood Swept Lands And Seas of Red exhibition, by artist Paul Cummins, involves 888,246 ceramic poppies planted in the dry moat at the Tower.

A poppy has been made for each British and Colonial death during the conflict.
