The Royal Family make sombre appearance at Remembrance Day service

King Charles presided over the nation at the annual Remembrance Day service for the first time as monarch, with the help of Queen Consort Camilla and the Princess of Wales in attendance.

For the Remembrance Day Service, the royal family gathered at the Cenotaph in London’s Whitehall neighborhood. King Charles laid a wreath at the Cenotaph in honor of those who lost their lives in combat.

The Princess Royal, Prince William, and Prince Edward marched behind the King at the head of the royal procession.

The ring of poppies will be modeled after the wreath worn by Charles’ late mother, the late Queen, and his late grandfather, George VI. For the first time, a wreath was laid on the Queen Consort’s behalf.

As is customary for the sovereign, poppies will be mounted on a bouquet of black leaves for the King’s wreath. The ribbon will be decorated with the scarlet, purple, and gold of the King’s racing team.

Additionally, the wreaths of George V, George VI, and Queen Elizabeth II included elements of royal racing colors.


Princess Anne was also in attendance, supported by husband Sir Timothy Laurence


The wreath of the previous Queen consort, the Queen Mother, is reminiscent of Camilla’s wreath and will feature her racing colors, which she inherited from her grandfather.

The Prince of Wales laid the wreath at the Cenotaph that had been laid by his father, who had been the title’s holder for more than 64 years prior to the throne’s accession. Prince of Wales feathers and a new Welsh red ribbon will be on William’s wreath.
