Royal family lead Britain's Remembrance Sunday tributes at Cenotaph service

The Festival of Remembrance Brings the Royal Fab Four Back Together

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II had an emotional moment as she was seen wiping a tear from her face during the annual Cenotaph Remembrance Sunday ceremony earlier this morning.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and other politicians paused campaigning for Britain's December 12 election to join the ceremony on a cold, sunny morning.

The mother-of-two wore her blonde hair in a half-up, half down style and was joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Queen, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

The British royal family continued to pay their respects to servicemen and women on Saturday when they attended the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Boris Johnson, Jo Swinson, Jeremy Corbyn and Ian Blackford also laid wreaths.

A two-minute silence was held as part of the Remembrance Sunday commemorations.

An equerry laid a wreath on behalf of the Duke of Edinburgh who was not present at the ceremony for the second year in a row after having retired from royal duties in 2017.

Leo Varadkar laid a wreath at the war memorial in the town.

Hundreds of armed forces personnel will also be present at the occasion, alongside Cabinet ministers, religious leaders and representatives of Commonwealth nations.

After the wreaths were laid, the Bishop of London, Dame Sarah Mullally, led a short service of remembrance which ended with trumpeters of the Royal Air Force sounding Rouse (Reveille) and the singing of the national anthem.

Bermudas Remembrance Day Parade will take place at the Cenotaph on Front Street from 10.30am tomorrow.

This was the 100th ceremony at the Cenotaph, following a tradition first begun after the first world war when thousands flooded into London and the memorial became a focal point for the bereaved.
