The annual Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in London saw quite a turnout this year. Everyone from the Queen to ex-Prime Ministers showed up to commemorate the soldiers and civilians who lost their lives in World Wars I and II.
All the attendees were dressed in black, as was appropriate to the sombre nature of the occasion, with the Remembrance poppy pinned to their jackets.
This is the first time that Kate, Duchess of Cambridge attended the ceremonies. She, along with the Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Vice-Admiral Timothy Laurence, watched from the balcony of the Foreign Office as other members of the Royal family laid wreaths at the Cenotaph.
Queen Elizabeth II was the first to lay the wreath, followed by the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and Prince William. Prince Harry was not at the service as he is in the United States in the final phase of his Apache helicopter training.
Prime Minister David Cameron followed the Royal family in placing a wreath, in turn followed by former Prime Ministers including Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and John Major.
