Queen Elizabeth II Delegates Wreath Ceremony to Prince Charles

Queen Elizabeth II Delegates Wreath Ceremony to Prince Charles

All were dressed in dark clothing as they watched from the royal box, with the Queen acknowledging the gathered servicemen and women with a wave.

Philip's equerry laid his wreath, while Charles also laid his own.

Prince William and Prince Andrew both appeared at the Remembrance Sunday service cleanshaven, yet Prince Harry had a beard when paying his respects at the Cenotaph service in London.

A two-minute silence will be held across the country and wreaths will be laid at memorials.

Prince Charles took over the laying of a poppy wreath at the Cenotaph in Whitehall from the Queen who has traditionally led such duties.

Former prime ministers Tony Blair, David Cameron, and Gordon Brown attended, alongside Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Lib Dem leader Vince Cable, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, and Prime Minister Theresa May.

Buckingham Palace announced the change, which is seen as part of a subtle shift of head-of-state duties from the Queen to the heir to the throne, last month. Queen Elizabeth has already reduced her schedule, with official engagements dropping 22 percent from the 425 in her 2012 diamond jubilee year to 332 in 2016.

There was also praise for service personnel and civilian services who came to the aid of the injured in the terrorist attacks at London Bridge and in Manchester this year. It has since grown and now remembers all those who died in war in battles of the past and wars that are still ongoing.

They were joined by the Duchess of Cornwall, the Countess of Wessex, the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duke & Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra and Sir Tim Laurence.

There were special performances by Melanie C, Alfie Boe & Natalie Lowe, Emeli Sande and others all in tribute to the armed forces. Remembrance Sunday is the Sunday nearest to Armistice Day on November 11, the anniversary of the 1918 signing of the peace treaty that ended fighting in World War I.
