A sentimental pit-stop! On March 23, Prince William and Duchess Kate swung by their wedding venue, Westminster Abbey — but the trip wasn't just for a walk down memory lane.

Instead, they were paying visit to those who helped turn the space into a pop-up vaccination center, which aims to give out 2,000 injections each week.

While there, the couple paid tribute to the medical workers and socialized with them, reported PEOPLE. The visit was in honor of the U.K.'s Day Of Reflection, which serves to honor the lives lost during the pandemic.

The special day falls on the one-year anniversary of the country going into lockdown.
