I always love the Festival of Remembrance, it's always so moving. I shall have to flick between this and The X Factor (though I could give The X Factor a miss to be honest. We all know that awful contestant Rylan wont go no matter what song he kills.)

Tears are flowing (including Sophie and Edward) as the families of some of those who died this year enter.

I noticed they had been crying, quite touching. I always cry at that bit.

And Rod singing Robbie B is even better. I loved his suit - you can always count on Rod to bring the Sartorial Splendor!

They were quite exceptional glasses! Edward and Sophie both wear glasses. I imagine they all wear contacts if they need to.

One day I may get through this without a tear - but it won't be soon. So moving.

Mark Stewart just tweeted that Duke and Duchess of Cambridge fans would have to wait until tomorrow to see them. Confirmation then?

William or Harry never attend the Festival of Remembrance, it's always the "working Royals" (Queen, Philip, Charles, Camilla, Anne, Andrew, Edward, Sophie, Gloucester's and the Kent's) so it's not surprising they weren't there. I do find it odd, however, that Edward and Sophie always sit to the Queen's right, with Charles and Camilla to her left, yet Anne and Andrew sit behind. How does that work? Of course, Anne, Andrew and Tim were in the front this evening as Charles and Camilla were absent, but they normally sit behind them. Surely Andrew should be beside the Queen and Philip?

Has Eugenie ever attend the Remembrance Service? I know Beatrice did in 1999 and she fainted and Tim and Sophie had to pick her up and hold her up.

I noticed at the end as the family were leaving that the Queen obviously said to Sophie she'd dropped something and Andrew and Sophie leant forward to see if they could see it. Amused me a little bit.

Does anyone know who the lady was standing next to Prince Michael - as you look at the screen, on the left behind Sophie. Thought at first it was P Alexandra but now not sure.

Royal box looking quite spartan tonight. Outwith Charles and Camilla being on tour the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra appeared to be missing and Prince Michael was there without his wife. BTW thought the Cambridges would definitely have been there tonight, can't think why they are not.
