Prince Philip will lead commemorations in Norfolk to the thousands of men who died during the First World War.

Tomorrow marks a century since Britain’s involvement in the Great War began, signalling the start of a long and bloody conflict that wiped out a generation of young men and devastated families across the country.

The Duke of Edinburgh will attend a service at Sandringham Church tomorrow night, while the Queen will be at Crathie Kirk, close to Balmoral in Scotland, to remember the fallen.
