Remembrance Sunday in London 2018

Remembrance Sunday in London 2018

During Sunday’s event to mark one hundred years since the end of World War I, the British royal family watched how Prince Charles lead the nation’s tributes on the centenary of the Armistice, London Evening Standard reported.

Among the royals, was pregnant Meghan Markle who wore a black coat and hat with her hair pulled back. Prince Harry and Prince William together with their wives all joined the Queen for a service to mark the Centenary of the Armistice at Westminster Abbey on Saturday.

Prince Charles laid a wreath at the Cenotaph on behalf of his mother the Queen for the second year in a row while an equerry placed a wreath at the foot of the Cenotaph on behalf of the Duke of Edinburgh.

The Duchess of Sussex, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, was also watching from one of the nearby balconies and was attending the Remembrance service as a royal for the first time.

Traditionally, Big Ben sounded 11 times as the clock struck 11 am as the nation fell silent to honour the Armistice centenary and remember those who have lost their lives in conflict.
