Prince Harry delivered an emotional message in support of his fallen comrades Sunday as part of Remembrance Day commemorations.

The fourth in line to the British throne returned to Kandahar, Afghanistan, where he had served two tours of duty as an Army officer, the Express reports.

At a vigil to commemorate the 453 British military personnel who were killed in action in Afghanistan, Harry laid a wreath and a handwritten note that said, “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. They will never be forgotten. Harry.”

The Remembrance Day service at Kandahar airfield will be the last as U.K. troops are scheduled to completely withdraw from Afghanistan by the end of the year.
