Does anybody know where HM was, or where the PoW and the DoC were for remembereance day services. They are usually at The Cenotaph, but I did not see any pictures today.

They must have been at the Cenotaph as the Queen always lays the first wreath there. HM has been absent very few times, mostly when she was either abroad on official visits or pregnant. I haven't been able to find anything online yet either, so looking forward to seeing more photos!

From the British Monarchy website:

The Remembrance Day ceremony is held on the second Sunday in November at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London.

The Queen, other members of the Royal Family and leaders of the country's political parties join representatives of the
Armed Forces and ex-servicemen and women for the two-minute silence and the last post.

Her Majesty then lays a wreath of poppies at the foot of the Cenotaph, followed by members of the Royal Family,
representatives of the political parties and High Commissioners from the Commonwealth.
A short religious service follows.

After the reveille and the national anthem, The Queen departs. The war veterans then march past the Cenotaph to pay their
respects to the fallen. A member of the Royal Family takes the salute as the war veterans finish their route at Horse Guards.

It's Muriel's fault, Warren. She almost convinced me we shouldn't wait until Sunday... Oh my, you're right. It's always on the 2nd Sunday of November.

Could be and it could be from lack of vitamins. Older people also tend to bruise easier. My grandmother's arms always looked like somebody beat on her.

Is that a bomb sniffing dog in 2nd picture? Or just a mascot?

At this stage, am I supposed to feign umbrage?

Warren is right, it is the second Sunday of November!!

BBC News - William pays Remembrance Sunday visit to Afghanistan

Looks like Prince William won't be at the Centopath today. He's just spent Remembrance Sunday and laid a wreathe at the remembrance ceremony at Camp Bastian in Afghanistan.

Someone else will place his wreath at the Cenotaph.

He is needed at Camp Bastion. He was visibly affected by the occasion.

I'm so proud to be British and these special days make me feel even prouder. Our fallen heroes made our country so great, God bless their souls! I'm also very proud of William at the moment. That was a great gesture, IMO!

I participated in my own Remembrance Service, today and I have just watched the ceremony in London. It does make me feel proud to be British that we remember those who have fallen not only on the 11th but on the sunday following as well.
