The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, The Earl and Countess of Wessex, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, The Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra of Kent will attend the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, London SW7.

The Earl of Wessex will give a reading. The CC does not say that Andrew and Anne are attending.

The Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance: BBC One 9pm UK Time-

In the presence of Her Majesty the Queen and members of the royal family, Huw Edwards presents the Royal British Legion's annual Festival of Remembrance, which pays tribute to all victims of war and conflict.

James Blunt, Alfie Boe, Katie Melua and the specially formed Poppy Girls perform alongside the Massed Bands of the Household Division and the bands of HM Royal Marines and the Royal Air Force.
The Festival includes the traditional two-minute silence as poppy petals fall from the roof of the Royal Albert Hall, each representing a life lost in war-

Watched the Festival of Remembrance. It always makes me cry, esp when the families of those who have died talk of their loss. The mother of a soldier who posthumously won the Victoria Cross is herself a person of courage. when the silence falls, and poppy petals cascade down, it is truly moving. We should never forget those who die and those who are injured, including their families. It is a debt of honour.

The poppies of Remembrance Sunday were inspired by a poem written by Canadian Doctor Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae in 1915.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

I was very moved by the Festival tonight. You could see the Earl & Countess of Wessex was very moved too. Those stories and the children will move you everytime.

I'm looking forward to the service in the morning.

I'm getting an "Unable to show in your area" message over the video...Grrr!!! I never could get those so called universal links to work either. I wish BBC Canada would show this and no idea why they don't. :(

Oh, if that does not melt your heart. No wonder Sophie and the PM were in tears. I bet Her Majesty even wiped one away. Her Majesty looks stunning. And Phillip- surprised he can walk with the weight of those medals!

Just as a totally irrelievant side point, why don't any of the newspapers, but the DM especially, never get royal titles right. Poor Tim Laurence is never referred to as Sir Tim Laurence.

At least they got his name right, David Dimbleby called Sophie The Duchess of Gloucester. He then said the sun was in his eyes so he couldn't see her properly....
