London - Princes William and Harry are out in London to show their support for British servicemen.

William and his wife, Kate, surprised hundreds of commuters as they joined a charity appeal outside a London tube station on Thursday.

They even took a bus to the station with television personality Barbara Windsor.

So normal of them.

Around 2 000 volunteers, including uniformed personnel and veterans, hit London's streets on Thursday for the Royal British Legion's "Poppy Day" charity appeal ahead of Remembrance Sunday, when Britons honour their war heroes.

The appeal is aiming to raise £1m ($1.6 million) in a day.

Prince William had a chat with the young volunteers...

The Royal British Legion provides care and support to current and former members of the UK armed forces and their families.

Prince Harry joined his grandfather, Prince Philip, at a ceremony on the grounds of Westminster Abbey to remember fallen soldiers.

Harry: "Don't smile don't smile don't smile don't smile..."

At least Prince Harry got to crack a joke with the Royal Airforce.
