One of WWII's bloodiest sieges remembered at famous abbey03 April, 14:12
The prince will reportedly take part in ceremonies at the famous Benedictine Abbey that was rebuilt after having been leveled by an Allied bombardment in May of 1944 that helped defeat the Germans and opened the path to Rome, but at a huge cost.
Both sides suffered tens of thousands of casualties in fighting that lasted from January to May that year. The abbey, founded by St. Benedict in 529, is about 75 miles south of Rome.
