The British royals were present in large numbers this morning for Remembrance Sunday, which commemorates the contribution of Commonwealth and British servicemen in the two world wars and later conflicts.

For King Charles it was the first time that he participated as monarch. The commemoration takes place annually at the Cenotaph. King Charles and the Royal Family arrived in Whitehall around 11 a.m. local time, after which a two-minute silence was observed. Then the King placed a wreath on behalf of the nation.

Queen Camilla’s wreath was laid by a member of staff as she watched from a balcony with the Princess of Wales. The Prince of Wales also laid a wreath, but a staff member also laid a wreath for the Duke of Kent. Also in attendance were the Princess Royal, Sir Timothy Laurence, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

After the royals, it was the politicians’ turn.
