Remembrance Day Services: 2003-2013

This Tuesday, 11 November, is Remembrance Day (Veterans Day for our American members), a day in which we remember and honour the thousands of soldiers, men and women who fought for peace and independence and the many liberties we have today.

As each year passes, the number of veterans who participate in Remembrance Day ceremonies around the world become less and less, but in no way does it make the sacrifices they made less important. In fact, it is more important than ever that we remember and honour their sacrifices and their memory.

On this day, take a moment to remember our veterans and show your support by wearing a poppy, a symbol for this most important of days, chosen because where soldiers died in a field between Belgium and France, thousands of poppies grew. The poppies surrounded the wooden crosses which were erected in memory of fallen soldiers, and the poppies became the symbol of the blood shed by the soldiers in battle.

Although other royal families honour this day, I think the British royals are most visible in commemorating Remembrance Day. A look back at November 11's past and present with the British royal family.


Flowers Placed on the Cenotaph

Veterans of the British Armed Forces place commemorative flowers on the Cenotaph. This event his held on Remembrance Sunday to commemorate the men who have fallen in past wars.

I remember watching this on TV, poor Bea collapsed half way through and had to be picked up by Edward & Sophie. She musn't have had her brekkie or been on her period or something. Poor kid spent ages trying to get uncle Eddie's attention, she kept looking up at him and whispering something, getting redder and redder in the face until she just fainted.

Why is Prince Phillip and Princess Anne in their naval uniform instead of their army or airforce uniform. And why is the duke of kent in the army uniform? Is there a protocol stating so?

Thanks!!!

The Duke of Edinburgh served as a Naval Officer both before and after his marriage.

The Duke of Kent served as an active Army Officer.

Princess Anne is Colonel in Chief of many regiments and naval areas so she can choose. For example she wears army uniform when trooping the colour.
