Remembrance Sunday at the Cenotaph
The Queen led the nation in the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph
On Sunday 13 November, The Royal British Legion’s patron, Her Majesty The Queen, led the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.
The beginning of the Two Minute Silence was marked by a two-gun salute fired on Horse Guards Parade. Following the silence, HM The Queen paid her respects to the fallen of the United Kingdom’s Armed Forces by laying a wreath on the Cenotaph. Other members of the Royal Family followed suit, including Their Royal Highnesses The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Henry of Wales.
After the service, thousands of Veterans marched past the Cenotaph to pay their respects. Veterans from hundreds of associations came from all over the world to pay tribute to the fallen.
