Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a special tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

The couple listed all 2,977 names of the people killed at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and on United Flight 93 on the homepage of their Archewell Foundation website.

The page was titled "In Memoriam" to mark the 20th anniversary of the tragedy.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's tribute follows Queen Elizabeth's remembrance of the victims.

On Saturday morning, "The Star-Spangled Banner" was played during the Changing of the Guard at Windsor Castle.

Two decades ago, the Queen similarly played the U.S. national anthem at Buckingham Palace in the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attacks.

In addition to the symbolic gesture, the Queen also issued a statement to President Joe Biden.

"As we mark the 20th anniversary of the terrible attacks on 11th September 2001, my thoughts and prayers — and those of my family and the entire nation — remain with the victims, survivors and families affected, as well as the first responders and rescue workers called to duty," she wrote.

"My visit to the site of the World Trade Center in 2010 is held fast in my memory. It reminds me that as we honour those from many nations, faiths and backgrounds who lost their lives, we also pay tribute to the resilience and determination of the communities who joined together to rebuild," the Queen added.
