Members of the British Royal Family took part in the annual Remembrance Day commemorations t the Cenotaph in Whitehall.
On the second Sunday in November, the British royal family remembers fallen soldiers and service members in a short memorial service, wreath laying ceremony, and moment of silence.
Prince Charles, Prince Harry, Prince William, and other senior members of the Royal Family stood at the Cenotaph for the ceremony. For the first year, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh joined the Duchess of Cornwall on a balcony.
Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, and Princess Alexandra viewed the services from a separate balcony. It was an emotional change for the Royal Family as the Queen steps back from certain duties usually reserved for the monarch.
As always, this was a poignant and moving event – admittedly, one of my favorites of the year. It is always a beautiful and moving ceremony to honor those who have given so much for us all.
