The Festival of Remembrance Brings the Royal Fab Four Back Together

Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance 2019

Political leaders, including Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Labour's Jeremy Corbyn, are breaking from election campaigning to attend the service at the memorial on Whitehall in central London.

Prince Charles laid a wreath on behalf of the Queen, followed by other Royals and prominent politicians - including Johnson.

A uniformed Prince of Wales was the first to place a wreath of poppies at the foot of the memorial on behalf of the Queen who watched the ceremony from a nearby balcony.

Just like a year ago, it was a royal full house at this important event, with Queen Elizabeth II joined by all four of her children and various members of their families, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

They stood with heads bowed as Big Ben tolled 11am, and a two-minutes' silence was marked by the firing of a gun by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery and buglers sounded the Last Post.

This year marks 100 years since the first two-minute silence was observed on Armistice Day on 11 November 1919.

The dukes of of Cambridge and Sussex also laid wreaths while their wives looked on, as did the Duke of York.

After wreaths are laid, the Bishop of London, Dame Sarah Mullally, will lead a service of remembrance which will end with trumpeters of the Royal Air Force sounding Rouse (Reveille).

Thousands of veterans and service personnel marched past the Cenotaph in London as Remembrance Sunday services were held at churches, cemeteries and war memorials across Britain in tribute to those killed in past and recent conflicts.

Following the ceremony, up to 10,000 veterans and servicemen and women marched past the Cenotaph to honour the fallen.

The Taoiseach has attended the Royal British Legion's Remembrance Day ceremony in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh. This year's event celebrated the 75th anniversaries of the great battles of 1944, paying tribute to the British, Commonwealth, and Allied armies who fought them.
