I agree - some lovely photos of those three on steps of St Paul's. Trio + another photo. Did Andrew arrive with Edward and Sophie? I always feel a bit sorry for Andrew as he is alone. I was glad to see he walked out of St Paul's with Harry, although that was probably prearranged.

I must say everyone looked lovely today and I loved what Kate and Sophie wore. I need Sophie's dress in my wardrobe now.

The above post by kapenot88 contains photos of the British royals attending the service in St Paul Cathedral.

The event seems to be a saccharine PR for yet another disastrous British campaign in Afghanistan.

There was a similar service after the war in the Falklands.

From these pictures, it appears that there's much more than four years' difference in the brothers' ages. I too find the Duke of York to be a rather sad figure.

Can't you show some respect? Regardless of personal feelings towards the people in charge of sending the Troops there and/or the Politics behind it or the War itself, you can still support the Men and Women of the Armed Forces who were sent over there and show respect for those who paid w/their lives. That is what this event was about. The Men and Women who, IMHO, more than earned a Service of Remembrance on such a grand scale.

This was no PR stunt and I also never thought I'd ever see a Service of Remembrance described as "saccharine". This was neither and was a very respectful and solemn ceremony both to honour those who fought in Afghanistan and made it home and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

That anyone would post about any Service of Remembrance the way you have...I do not understand and find disgusting as well.

The British have had commemoration services for the men who died in the wars throughout the 20th century and now the 21st - not just for the Afghanistan War but all wars from the Boer War onwards with regular services for WWI and WWII still happening at regular milestones.

They also had one for the thirtieth anniversary of the Falklands War in 2012 where the families of those who died were front and centre.

Great photos. I like that William didn't draw attention to himself. Though he does look like the King. Regal yet approachable.
@ Ice- Was Robert Hardy at the Winston Churchill event?

The Queen has hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace this evening, to mark the 50th anniversary of The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. Set up in 1965 as a living legacy to the UK’s most famous wartime Prime Minister, the Trust – of which Her Majesty is patron – has awarded over 5,000 fellowships to British citizens, helping them to travel abroad and study areas of topical and personal interest-
